The sun through the clouds is shining the sea silver. From the fifth floor the sound is surround; big waves, people chatting in the street, cars. Soon we will mosey on down for a coffee and a sea swim, or a sea swim and then coffee. None of us know what we’ll do after that. Big Friendly and I are totally sunned up. Today is the second last day of our week long holiday, here with my brother and sister-in-law on the KZN coast. It has been a proper, proper old fashioned holiday; without a car, strolling around, on the beach, in the pool, hanging out at the local spots, and we have loved every minute of it. Big Friendly and I are not used to actual holidays. But this week has shown me how necessary, revitalising and just delicious they are. Must go. Coffee and waves.
