It’s been a stunning week at the beach. The weather was stunning although once or twice we did get a little cold in the afternoons. We spent each and every morning on the beach building sandcastles or playing ball. On one morning Dad and I even climbed up onto the lifeguard’s platform and pretended it was a boat that we were steering out to sea. As the morning sun rose in the midday we would head up to the pool at Cabana Beach Lifestyle Resort to swim and mellow out. Not only is the pool heated but it is accompanied by a Wimpy, so there’s always chips and fish fingers on tap for me.

Our afternoons were spent lazily, with the occasion visit to The Gateway and a play at Mr Funtumbles. Mommy was determined to win 1200 tickets for me to get a Bart Simpson, and she succeeded! I’m now the proud owner of a Bart Simpson. We also went up to the Cabana’s sister hotel Umhlanga Sands to chill out there and visit the Spur.

Unfortunately Saturday morning arrived all to quickly and after a nice breakfast in Umhlanga we headed back to the hotel for our luggage. The drive back was uneventful, other than Dad and I occasionally singing some of our favourite songs at the tops of our voices.

Back home it was awesome to see Mickey, Missy, Mischka and Rhino again. It seems our timing was perfect once again as we missed the cold spell in Jo’burg.

Until next week!

Lots of love

    I envy you – I miss the sand, see and waves! Looks like you had a wonderful time. We used to go there once a year while still working in the corporate world and also had a ball of a time. JB is growing up so quickly, good luck with home schooling and the challenges! Lots of love, Yolandi
