Good morning Durban!

Durban All in One

Good Day Durban!

I took a short stroll on the beach this morning at sunrise before work. It was not long before I was accosted by Prakash and Dave who were a little curious about my new Canon G3X “point & shoot” ๐Ÿ˜‰.

Dave is a die-hard Canon man but Prakash tends to stray between Nikon, Fuji and some camera clubs ๐Ÿ™‚.

We chatted to one of the boat crew who told us of very few fish and the ones that were caught were small, but lots of sewerage / waste being dumped from or out the harbour.

There was also mention of Chinese trawlers poaching in our waters. Everyone did their little bit to best try explain or guess why there are no fish when there should be.

It was then off to start the work day.

I was also told a tit-bit of information that reinforced the theory that times of extreme hardship in our lives can actually turn out to be huge blessings in disguise.

It obviously doesn’t feel like it at the time; it feels like living hell!

Yes, five years, or perhaps even shorter or longer, is a long time to wait but the benefits can be well worth it.

And yes the pain is unbearable at times, but again I say it can be well worth it.

I’ve never been one to rush down to the harbour to see a ship arriving or leaving but this was an opportunity not to be missed (PS – I could also then miss gym!).

I burnt up an 8GB memory card before leaving and will be looking for some other photos / angles to work on.

A majestic sight!
