Another day in Ballito …

… from sunrise to sunset  (our second last day).

Making the most of a glorious sunrise over the Indian Ocean.  Each dawning of a new day is different.   This day was pastel and pretty and yet the sun was fiery through the zoom  ..

From our patio I spotted an Egret looking for breakfast, while I was having mine.  This is when I wish I had a super duper lens

Unfortunately I only captured this lady filling up her 1 litre bottle for the second time, with sea water.  Most holiday makers, on their last day of their holiday at the sea, fill up bottles (ie milk, water, or coke bottles) of sea water to take home.   A gift from the sea for our domestic helpers.  We did it every year for Sina.  She said she drank it!!  For health and well-being.  A couple of inches of sea sand at the bottom stops it from going sour, apparently.   Now .. this lady filled her bottle and stood there on the rocks downing the entire contents!!!  I was hoping she would do the same with the second full bottle of sea water.  She didn’t but walked off with it .. to be consumed later, I suppose …

Hubby and I enjoyed our early evening walk along the promenade, as did many on beach or promenade, including this chappie with his ‘ Charlie’  (all Boston Terriers are called Charlie – Elaine’s friend Robyn has one named Charlie .. hence to me all Bostons are known as Charlie 😉 )

As I’ve said before, I just love the colours in the early morning and early evening.  Colours of the sky … and colours of the sea.  They’re only there for a short time .. a magical moment.   So forgive me .. here are some more, as I’ve posted before.  But these are from this day .. this moment in time ..
