Sani Flow

Do you still have your own mind and freedom, or are desperately trying to fit in and keep everyone happy (except yourself)?

It’s a dog’s life

“A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things-a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty.” ~ John Grogan, Marley and Me: Life and Love With the World’s Worst Dog

Photos taken in Himeville last weekend. Thank you again to Underberg Accommodation for organizing our stay. If you recall a previous post, these are the dogs that took us for a walk on their farm

Himeville, KwaZulu-Natal.

We found the snow in KZN

A truly blessed weekend (24-26 July 2015) that started with Durbanism Kzn giving away two free tickets to Taste of Durban on Friday night – an awesome event even in the rain. Also big thumbs up to Meryl Mpho Lengana Mbuli who added two more tickets – thank you Durban The warmest place to be. Saturday morning, it was an early rise and trek to Underberg to our wonderful little rented house – thank you https://www.facebook.com/underbergaccommodation. Saturday lunch was at The Grind Café – if I could have had another pizza there for lunch today I would have! Tasty beyond measure. Early this morning my family and I drove along Sani Pass Road and past Sani Pass Hotel. We had to stop at the bottom of the pass but I got the troops out the car and we started walking up the long hill hoping to see one snowflake.

Luckily, we were able to hitch a lift with Leon Potgieter and his family in their Mazda LDV up into the snow at the border post. Leon built a large snow-dog, took a few photos and then sent the snow-dog tumbling!!

He then raced us back to the bottom and we were on our way back to Durban.
