Miguel my little star was so happy - - he had a wonderful time. He was busy non stop - he played, helped papa with building a fire in the fire place even though it was almost 30deg Celsius (86 degree Fahrenheit) !!! In Durban there is no call for fire places as it never gets cold enough so when Chris saw a fire place he had to use it no matter what !!!
We spent Saturday morning going for a horse ride - he rode like a pro - as if he had been riding all his life, he LOVED it - Look at me mommy im big now, I can ride & look for the zebras too!! Riding with one hand & the other shading his eyes, like he was John Wayne outon the range! He would not let me hold him & could only walk next to the horse (but not too close). I then took Miguel for a 'refreshing' swim in one of the pools - he is fearless & is now trying to swim by himself, the problem is that he cant but this does not bother him as he swims away from the step regardless if you are watching him or not!! On Sunday morning I had a special treat - a hot rock massage . . .oooooooohhh!! Lord have Mercy !!! That was sublime !! Afterwards I played putt putt with Miguel, followed by a huge session on the trampoline, another horse ride on his horse that he has now very originally named 'Horsie Ridey' & to end the morning off a session of invisible bowls. I tell you I got some strange looks, it was a close game between Miguel & I but I won in the end - as if any of you had any doubt . . .'long live the bowling queen'!! It was then time to head on home.
Here is a layout that I did of a weekend break we took over Christmas, It is called Zinkwazi & is a place that only locals really know, it is about 1 hour from us up the corth coast of Natal. It has a beautiful beach with a lagoon as well, so it is perfect for Miguel to swim & explore all day long. We are so lucky in that we have the mountains 2 hours away, the beach is 20 minutes away & game parks are about 1 hour away. The only thing we dont have is skiing - that is about 8 hours drive in winter from us to the south.
