The dune at Sardinia Bay is probably the best and most popular spot in Port Elizabeth to enjoy a beautiful sunset. We haven’t been for ages and I got tired of seeing other people post photos of it on Facebook, so on Tuesday afternoon I made a suggestion to go when I got home from work and was still putting down my bag when I heard the door close as everybody headed for the car.
Yesterday morning I was slightly earlier on my way to work than I have been because of levels 5 (work from home); 4 (still working from home); 3 (back at the office but in no rush to get up in the morning) and 3.86 (ii) section G, subsection purple with a tint of green, paragraph the doorbell is ringing but there is nobody there, line do they even know what’s going on, I think I’m hungry now, I don’t smoke but just give them their cigarettes. Oh and when can tourism establishments open, stop dragging your feet. But I’m digressing. Coming down La Roche in Humewood the sun was right in front (excuse the dirty window) and I just had to pull over in front of Bayworld to enjoy the moment.
I love the wide angle lens on my new phone. Makes for awesome photos. My thought was top try and get there before sunset this morning. I failed. Oh well, here is yesterday’s sunrise.
Last night’s sunset was something else. Wow, literally fire in the sky. Unfortunately, I was kept busy with visitors leaving and only got to grab my phone for a pic just before it was too late. Still striking!
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 exercising. And to a lesser extend Geocaching. Plus my laptop at home has packed up again. You know how it is. When it rains it pours. If it would only do that literally in our catchment areas. So I’m currently trying to wrap my head around how I can juggle it all and get blogging again. In the meantime, I just had to stop on my way to the office this morning and grab this photograph to share. Doesn’t matter how busy you are, you can’t help but stop to admire true natural beauty.
I had to go to East London for a SA Tourism workshop today and hit the road before sunrise and only returning well after sunset. Which means that I enjoyed both whiles on the road today with the sun rising as I was barrelling down the N2 this morning.
Yesterday afternoon I worked a little later than usual and as I left the office the sun was starting to head for the horizon. I stopped across the road from Bayworld and grabbed my camera. Those photos are still there… on my camera, but I did snap one with my phone as well. We’ve been very fortunate to have a few stunning sunsets the last few days.
One of the things I like about this time of the year is the fact that we have so little wind. Over the last few days we’ve had some stunning days with striking sunsets, but this morning I swung past the beach before work and got a slightly post sunrise photo. The start of another tough day in the Bay.
While deciding what to post tonight I started wondering what the first picture was I posted on PE Daily Photo. I went digging through the archives and arrived back at 15 March 2009 when I took over Port Elizabeth Daily Photo from Sue and Max Hoppe and posted my first photo on this blog. It was one of a sunrise at Hobie Beach. I think it was taken just after the start of Ironman that year but I could be wrong. Never the less, it was the start of a journey which still continues today, closing in on 3000 posts done since that first one. Good thing I checked so looking forward to celebrate in a couple of weeks time.
