I was asked by the family where I wanted to go and be treated to lunch. ‘We haven’t been to the Durban beachfront for a while. The grandkids and I can take bikes,’ I suggested.
And so it was. Throngs of pedestrians and other cyclists didn’t make the wide promenade crowded, and we had great fun seeing the scenes. I just regretted not having brought along a bathing costume – plus, perhaps my paddle-ski. With the school holidays coming up, perhaps we can go a bit more often. The bicycles gave a lot of fun, anyway, and then followed a typical fast-food meal.
Anyway, I thought I should get these pictures in today, to demonstrate the awful hardships we suffer during our winters here. Yes, all those specks in the water near and far are people swimming – or, at least, standing up in waves so that they can get knocked over by them.
