Tropical heat

Hi dear friends, how did your weekend go? After a weekend away, just south of Durban, I’m definitely in the mood for more vibrant, intense colours, rich greens, bold oranges, a little bit of tropical inspiration please! We drove down along the South Coast to Port Edward and the drive was absolutely amazing… beautiful lush hills with more greenery than you can imagine and the sea on one side. Banana trees, palms, vervet monkeys, hot weather, I was in heaven!

Unfortunately on Saturday which was the day of the wedding it drizzled but the wedding was still amazing, more about that later though and a few pics too. So it’s back to Cape Town and a new week, the sun is shining and I’m feeling happy! Another trip to Natal is definitely in order though!
