The Port Elizabeth beachfront faces east which means the sun comes up over Algoa Bay and the sea. I don't think a lot of people realise that the beachfront is also a great place to watch the sun set as it sets over the city centre. The KidZ wanted to go down to the beachfront … Continue reading Dusk over Kings Beach
It is sad to see Port Elizabeth's beaches empty in summer due to Covid19, but whether empty or full of sun worshippers, they stay exotically beautiful.
Longing for the beach at dusk
So the beaches have been closed by our brilliant government leaving the kids to looking longingly at the Covid infected sandy areas from the safety bubble of the walk literally meters away. At least they could enjoy the sunset and the view at dusk and weren't chased away by the brave police force taking their … Continue reading Longing for the beach at dusk

Sunrise over Algoa Bay
I'm still here. I may not have posted anything on my blog for a month but I'm still around. It's scary though how busy my life has become between work, family, sport (the kids', not my own) and everything else I'm involved in. The two things that have suffered the most are my blog and … Continue reading Sunrise over Algoa Bay
Sunday stroll at the beachfront market
On Sunday at about lunchtime, the Damselfly and I headed down to the beachfront for a walk along the stalls at the Kings Beach Fleamarket. I'm sure many will agree with me that the flea market isn't what it used to be anymore, BUT... and I have to add this as a counter for everybody … Continue reading Sunday stroll at the beachfront market
