Durban Skyline from the Ski-Boat Club

Durban skyline from the ski-boat club near the harbour entrance, under a dramatic sky. It was a grey day but a bit of help from Snapseed improved the view 😊   We spent a bit of time on the beach here after our visit to the harbour mouth, when we saw the ship come in….

Durban Harbour Day Out

Durban Harbour – second biggest sea port in Africa and biggest in sub-saharan Africa. It’s a busy port, it’s also a good place for a tourist day out.

Breaking Waves and Ships

Breaking waves and ships. As the waves break on the beach, the ships sil across the horizon, or wait patiently at anchor to enter harbour.

After the high tea we could not have done the menu any justice. #umhlanga #rocks. #kzn #kwazulunatal #oysterboxhotel…

Waiting for a Bite

Gone fishing. A fisherman’s rod standing in the sand waiting for a bite. Ships on the horizon queue to get into Durban harbour. Incredible light on the whole scene as the sun attempts to get through the cloud cover. Photos from our Durban Trip, 2016. from 500px Waiting for a Bite via IFTTT
