KwaZulu Natal – Last Day

Dawn over the mountains this morning was as beautiful as every other here.

Today we leave for the airport and will be at home on Friday afternoon! We have been in Africa!

KwaZulu Natal – Day 12

This morning we left the Drakensburg Hotel for a journey of a couple of hours to The Cavern where we spend our last five nights in these hills, walking and bird watching. Before we left we bought a beautiful basket that Rose had made.


Rose is the lady in red.

On the journey, we liked these trees on the skyline. 

The view from our room.

We hope you have had a wonderful birthday, Ti.

Welly Dogs, Fun and Helping

A delightful day was had by all, half the family going into Truro for shopping and we, with LiveWire T, going into Redruth, enjoying the Welly Dogs, going to Home Ground coffee shop for a treat, playing in the park, chopping the tomatoes for the guacamole for supper and finally learning how to do French knitting.

Daffodils, Decorations and Deer

We were given Daffodils before Christmas and they are still beautiful.

Two of our LiveWires arrived tonight. I found the little Christmas stirrers for their drinks.

I was at the hospital this evening for an MRI on my ankles- the lovely young people were working all evening – and outside the block were a Christmas tree and some charming reindeer.

Boxing Day Blooms

A wild and wet day in the garden with a brief respite for me to take some photos of the bits of colour still in the garden.




The overflowing Sailors’ Barometer indicates the impending downpour.

Frost, Sunlight and Snowmen 

A really heavy frost lay on the ground as we went to Blickling House for a walk and the grass, leaves and fungi had beautiful frosty patterns on them.



I also caught the sun shining through a fallen leaf.

When we were in the garden centre yesterday, B spent her pocket money on some 3D glasses that made all fairy lights appear to have little snowmen around them. It amused us all that my camera was able to look through the glasses and catch the little men in a photo.

English Countryside and Airport Sunset

It’s a five hour train journey from Cornwall to the metropolis and we love every minute, watching the world go by, reading the paper and our novels. Here is a glimpse from the train of our glorious green countryside.

Tomorrow we fly to Portugal for a walking holiday, four nights in Porto and five nights in Lisbon. The sunset from our hotel room was quite dramatic.
