We've just returned from a refreshing, invigorating holiday in Ballito, on the east coast of South Africa, just north of Durban.

Ten days of escaping from reality....

Ten days just the five of us....

Ten days of being unplugged....

Ten days being free from ordinary daily responsibilities.

Ten days of feeling cradled by God, from the upgrade on our rental car (to a brand new one with 12 km on the clock), to some amazing God ordained meetings with new friends (more to come in the next few days)...

Ten days of sheer wonder.

 Such an awesome blessing....

this stunning boardwalk stretches the length
of Ballito's beaches
Remember loving this as a kid?
Belle had to be a sand mermaid often everyday!
Exploring the rock pools early each morning was
a highlight for me and them whilst Dad slept in.
We even caught sight of dolphins most days frolicking in the waves!
The weather wasn't great all the time
but we didn't let that stop us!
We watched a dolphin show at uShaka Marine world, and I
sobbed my heart out. Brave heart thought this was so funny, so
we only have pictures of me crying, non of the dolphins!
I think I was just so happy that my kids were experiencing
something i LOVED as a child.

Holding rabbits and loving it!

Visiting the Shark Cage where Braveheart's Sharkie is proudly

Got to love Belle in this get up!

Thanks to King Arthur we have this shot of the both of us!
For my birthday we rode in the sky car to the
 top of the Moses Mabhida stadium - o my shattered nerves!

visiting Mini-town - don't all Zimbabwean remember this from
their childhood?!

All three kids shared a room and loved getting up to mischief!

Fun  in the sun!
