Low tide

We were looking for a beach today. We found a creek at low tide which was so great it reminded me of Kenya.

The sand was soft and golden, the water was cool and the sun baked us warm from above.

Fish were exposed in the shallow water. We tried to catch them in a net and we were joined by a couple of dogs on their walk. It was a dog paradise.

South Africa lacks the tropical humidity and heat of Kenya, but today was close. Low tide was calm, hot and water flowed in as the tide changed.

Life slowed down for a while which is always good.

Birthdays and surprises

I am a fan of surprises. My wife has booked us a trip away for my birthday tomorrow and I have no idea where we are going, but it’s in a plane so it ain’t close!

Some people hate surprises and moan about birthdays….I like em both.
