Recently Enjoyed Things – South Africa

I thought I’d take some time today to show you some random snippets of photos from our time here.

Durban, South Africathis photo is pretty cool because this is the original but since my photos auto back up to Google+ and sometimes it takes photos that have multiple shots and finds the best smiles from each and combines them into one photo, it’s like lazy man’s Photoshop!

this photo is funny but I love it

** I totally got this idea from one of my favorite bloggers, Drea from Oh Dear Drea, it’s a fun little way to show a bunch of photos that would otherwise not get shared here. I definitely think I’ll be doing this again.

  1. Monkeys are a big problem where I’m from! I stay as far away from them as possible, haha! Love seeing these photos of the family united!

  2. So many lovely photos. The B&B looks wonderful. What a pool! I just worked out we’ll be about 140km from Durban this weekend. So crazy! Enjoy the rest of your time in South Africa!

    1. Oh that makes me so sad! We are going to be SOOOO close! I’ll be praying for safe travels for you!
