Holidaying in Ballito, KwaZulu Natal North Coast

My photographic journey of our holiday in Ballito begins.

Firstly let me show you where we stayed.   Using my wide-angle lens : we were on the third floor in the white apartment block with glorious views.  We’ve stayed in the same block several times, in different units, but not stayed in this particular one.  It was great .. everything worked, including all the light bulbs!  The only gripe I had was that there was no washing machine.  A tumble drier (?) and a dishwasher but no washing machine.  I would have rather had the washing machine than the dishwasher.  Other than that it was perfect.   The small beach in front is too rocky for swimming.  There are three swimming beaches within walking distance to all the apartment blocks along the promenade

Granny Beach .. ideal for small kiddies and old fogeys like ourselves;)   there is a bank of rocks which break the force of waves and strong currents ..

Willards Beach (main beach) in the late afternoon, was not nice this time round.  Most years it’s lovely .. flat with very few rocks, but this year tides have taken the sand away exposing rocks ..

More seascapes, sunrises, late afternoon shots, and bits in-between to follow
