As you know we went on a ten-day holiday in Zululand.
The weather was beautiful: 35•C/95•F. Winter months in Zululand on the Eastern Seaboard of South Africa are normally the best.
On Saturday, 9th May, Grant left for his reunion ski-boat fishing trip in Mozambique (830 kms further than where we ladies stopped off for the holiday) with 11 other fishing buddies from 34 years ago.
Rina and I were booked into my friend, Brenda's Guest House situated near her farmhouse and surrounded by lush garden shrubs and huge old trees. I've already posted something of the birds we spotted in and around the garden; I have many more to share here...
We spent time on the beach (more about the birds I photographed there tomorrow), we went into town and we visited a nearby game reserve.
A friend from the late seventies, Jenny Smith, contacted me on Facebook and we arranged to meet at the new bistro in town called Feast. We had a wonderful reunion, catching up on the 36-odd years since we'd last seen each other.
Jenny and moi. Jenny and her husband, Butch are avid birders so you can imagine the talk!
While we chatted up a storm, the proprietor brought the tea and a complimentary health breakfast made with her own muesli
During the week I met up with several friends who had their children the same time as I did in Zululand. More about this in a later post.
