      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.

      Flew from Singapore to Johannesburg and then another short flight to Durban. Rented car at the airport.

      Stayed for one night in this colonial style hotel by the Indian Ocean.

      ... rural area and was no longer attending the creche. But last week we were visiting Margate and there she was! I asked Fezy what had happened and she was clearly delighted to tell me that A couple of weeks earlier Hlonipha had come back to creche and was living back with her mum and she was her happy smiling (a little quiet) but relatively normal Hlonipha so one can only hope whatever was happening has stopped. I guess we can thank God for that.

      ... doctors out here and we have guests to dinner. I can see a life of tennis, gin and evening swims in the tidal pool yards from my home. That is when I not on call.

      An electric storm is brewing and a massive clap of lighting has just hit the sea causing Cat to scream. From our balcony, with its bright red flickering hurricane lamps one can watch the rain hit the hillside in sheets drowning out the cry of the sea.
