travel // a weekend in the south coast

Lake Eland Oribi Gorge

In July we went on a family weekend getaway for my mom’s birthday. This time around we decided to go to the KZN south coast for some sun as opposed to our winter getaway last year. We stayed in the small suburb of Pennington, my sister found us a very beautiful house on AirBnB, it had a very beach house feel to it and it was a hop, skip and a jump away from the beach. It was a special holiday because it was my baby girl’s first (of many) holidays.
