Midlands Meander - Lion's River Cottages

This past weekend I spent in the KZN Midlands, Midlands Meander to be more exact. We went on a family holiday for my mom’s birthday. The holiday was a mixture of exploring and also relaxing, chatting and laughing with the family. Whenever we are together, laughter is the theme! Here are some snaps of our holiday.

The scenery was wonderful! Winter with a bit of green; this is the entry way to our accommodation

The scenery doesn’t change much in winter in Durban, so I loved seen brown leaves and naked trees.

The evergreens were also well represented

This sculpture takes my breath away every time I visit this site

      Wee had a great time Becca. It was warm-ish during the day but got rather chilly in the early afternoon. It really is a beautiful place.
