A day without sunshine is like, you know, night – Steve Martin

We are currently experiencing an unseasonably cold winter here on the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast. When the sun shows its face and the wind subsides, even for only a few minutes, we drop everything and go for a quick walk.

In our wanderings, we come across all sorts of creatures taking advantage of the small respites from the foul weather.

    MONKEES!!!! Hestor 😀 I’ve been waiting for your monkey photos, fabulous!

  3. Aaaahh, jou foto’s laat my sommer ‘n bietjie warmer voel op hierdie yskoue dag.

  4. Hester ek het voorheen nog ‘n kommentaar geplaas wat verdwyn het. In die eerste foto regs is daar iets kenmerkend wit. Is dit ‘n peul en is dit werklik so wot of vertoon dit maat so?

    • Dis ‘n blaar wat toegevou het. Jy sien ‘n gedeelte van die onderkant waarop die son weerkaats. Kyk na die skaduwee reg onder die wit streep.

    Mooi Hester! Van die foto’s krijg je het toch een beetje warm! 🌞

    • Die winterson is maar flou in vergelyking met die hitte van die somer 😄

        Hier in Nederland zeggen we dan: wie het ‘kleine’ niet eert…. is het grote niet weerd. Maar jij ‘eert’ dei floue winterson! 🙂

  6. Welgedaan

  7. Your photos are magical! Those monkeys are just a adorable. Funny to think that you experience winter, while we’re having one of the hottest summers ever. We’ve had more than 3 months of three digit temperatures. (More than 37 degrees Celsius. Do you measure temperature in Celsius or Fahrenheit?)

    • We use Celsius and I must agree, 37 degrees is a bit on the warm side 😄 Here at the coast we are very comfortable at 25 or even up to 30 degrees, thereafter it gets a bit uncomfortable because of the high humidity. In the drier regions ±36 degrees is the norm; 40 degrees is deemed to be “a bit hot” 🙂
