This photo was taken in Amanzimtoti in the Durban area in South Africa. Every year we'd go and visit my grandmother who lived just around the corner from Uncle Nico and Aunt Shelley. And usually we'd go in the June / July school holidays because Durban gets incredibly hot and humid in the summer. I know it doesn't make much sense to people here, but that was the only time we ever got to spend time at the beach because we lived about 600km away at the time.
Oh the memories this photo brings!
