Another drunk driver brought in moaning about his self-inflicted knee pain at the nurses station suddenly seems even more unsavoury. What a night. December is a busy month in a place not known to be quiet.
Half a sleep as we drive home at 8am o’clock we ponder in silence. I guess this is why we came here. Scenes and experiences for life.

The final day, E-Day, the end, the conclusion; it was fitting enough that my final day on African soil would fall on the day of the World Cup Final.

If you are in Durban with the kids this is a great place to stay. When the sun moves from the pool area you can take the nets and fishing rods down to the beach and go rock pooling. At night time the kids loved using the cinema room and being spoilt with popcorn. The hotel excels itself in making sure you have a relaxing and enjoyable time. Our accommodation was ideal - with the adults enjoying a large and separate room and en suite and the kids down stairs with extra beds in the lower section. The manager was fantastic and helped us with ideas on where to go and what to do not just for Durban for throughout our trip.
