Good Morning Durban!

I’m told it’s going to be a hot day in Durban today.

Luckily The Oyster Box Hotel has free WiFi

Oyster Box Visit-36 (Large)

“When we are most successful we are most intimately faced with the seductions that will bring our success to its very knees.



1. we stop pursuing the tough opportunities and relax into an easier work style.
2. we fail to remember who we serve and the imperative of helpfulness.
3. we resist growth in favor of pleasure [and comfort].
4. we no longer have a fire to win but, instead, rest on past victories”

Sunrise at Royal Natal Yacht Club

This is an angle of the harbour I have wanted to shoot for months but never got around to. It can be seen when racing from the city lights shoot at Wilson’s Wharf to catch the sunrise at the main yacht basin. The only trick was to watch what was lurking on the railway tracks behind…


I read this after my sunrise photo shoot earlier this morning (11 March 2017) and it really made sense.

“FILL UP YOUR TANK: How do we keep our inner fire alive? Two things, at minimum, are needed: an ability to appreciate the positives in our life – and a commitment to action. Every day, it’s important to ask and answer these questions: ‘What’s good in my life?’ and ‘What needs to be done?'” – Nathaniel Branden

The Ocean Terrace at Oyster Box Hotel

What a spot for breakfast Ocean Terrace @ Oyster Box Hotel.

“Try to bear patiently with the faults of others as you also may have weaknesses which require the patience of others. See God in all beings. There is always some virtue and goodness in every person. By seeing only the good in others, we can help them to grow in virtue. Fault-finding is often the result of jealousy” ~ Sri Swami Sivananda

The road to Sand River Valley

“Give to the poor, the sick, the helpless and the forlorn. Give to orphans, the decrepit, the blind and the helpless widows. Give to spiritual institutions. Feel that you are greatly honoured in getting an opportunity of being of service to another. Thank the person who gives you an opportunity of serving him” ~ Sri Swami Sivananda

What to do when you have a 17:30 meeting at Sand River Valley and on your way there the sun is setting…


"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain
