Day 2 | Estuary Hotel and Spa
We love the beaches on the South Coast as there seem to be rock-pools no matter which stretch of beach you venture on and, the little man is a real beach baby that loves catching anything and everything with his now growing collection of nets bought at beach-side stalls (we really need to make a list of what to pack when going on a beach getaway as we always end up buying nets and we already have a HUGE collection). If he could be covered in beach sand all day, every day, he would be in his element. We took one of the canoes which can be hired at reception and paddled our way to the beach. We probably needed the paddle to burn off some of the breakfast calories.
We spent the morning on the beach, building sandcastles, swimming in the sea and the estuary and talking about anything and everything while getting sandier and sandier. This is why family holidays are so important to us. It gives us the time to reconnect with one another as during the week we are so tied up with ‘we need to do this project’, ‘we need to finish that task’ etc. This is family time and ONLY family time. No distractions but us and the beauty around us.
After our morning beach vibes we explored the area a bit and stopped in at Beaver Creek Coffee which is gaining in popularity and with just cause. But sorry folks, you’ll have to catch our blog on that a bit later. If we had to include all the areas and activities to explore and experience on the South Coast of KwaZulu-Natal it would be a very long post indeed, more a novella.
We headed back to the Estuary Hotel and Spa where the Man tried his hand at fishing. And, he had some luck! He gave the species a name but because I wasn’t really paying attention as the little man and I were trying to catch our own fish with one of his nets, we shall just call it a silver fish. It had a flattish nose if that helps.
