Back to (what counts for us as) Normal

Some progress has been made with unpacking, dismantling and boxing the loads of Christmas decorations, reducing the grounds from jungle to garden, and preparations for the start of the school year.


J had a chance to consolidate her new cycling skills.


A breakfast at Royal Natal Yacht Club where pelicans can be seen behind the Da Gama stone which was transplanted from its original site in the city in line with the idiotic policy of trashing or sidelining colonial relics.


Across the way at Point Yacht Club the resident Egyptian Geese shepherd their three goslings.

I was hoping to see some yachts in action, but with a mixture of showers and absolutely no wind the only spectacle was a couple of Paper Tigers drifting forlornly. Still, we had a good meal and the kids enjoyed a swim in the club pool.
