Going right on from yesterday, this is the second day of our mini-vacation.
Our day started with the most amazing breakfast you can imagine. Everything tasted incredible and was just beautifully served. The breakfast was brought to us in a picnic basket, the warm food still steaming and the cold dishes still cool. We got orange juice, yoghurt with fresh fruit, fresh, lovely croissants, omelettes with sausage, instant porridge and fresh bread. It was a great way to start our day!
We went sight seeing after breakfast. On our way to the Royal Natal Park, we met some cattle on the road.
When we arrived at the park, we prepped for a hike with Kayla. We went on the Fairy Glen trail, which is the shortest route, but because it was our first hike with the baby, we didn't want to go too far in case of an emergency. It turns out our concerns were unnecessary, because Kayla loved the hike! She was so excited to see everything and I have a feeling she's an outdoorsy type. :)
Jan carried her in the kangaroo carrier and I was in charge of the camera.
If you ever have the opportunity to go to the Drakensberg and the Royal Natal Park, do yourself a favour and do it. It's really, really amazing! It's breathtakingly beautiful and really just an incredible experience.
After the hike, we treated ourselves to some ice cream. And this little angel loved eating with me.
We drove around some more in the park and then we went on to the Waffle Hut in Winterton for lunch.
Sorry for the blurred photo, but it as taken with a baby in the arm. A really busy, curious baby, who wants to see, touch and taste everything. :)
I ordered a blueberry milkshake, which was delicious, and Jan had a double thick bubblegum one. He ordered the Amarula fudge waffle, which was FRIGGEN AMAZING AND WONDERFUL, while I had a chocolate waffle (I can't remember the exact name of it. But it had chocolate mousse or something of the like). Jan's was by far the better one!
When we got back 'home' at Phezulu, we enjoyed a sundowner on the patio. One of the ponies graced us with his presence, to Kayla's absolute delight.
We had an absolutely amazing sunset to end off our day. The sun through the clouds was just breathtaking. It got very windy soon after this, so we had to go inside and make another fire. But we still enjoyed the view through the windows for a while.
And then we had to say goodbye to the mountains and take the road to Durban the next day. Tune in tomorrow for more!
Stay beautiful and be kind to animals,
