That was my front yard for Dec/Jan, so many apologies for the extended absence. It wasn't actually intentional, but my laptop decided to die on Day 4 of our trip so I was stuck in the middle of remote Indonesia with only a phone, and wasn't able to keep the website updated.
So here's a summary of what went down in the PE 'hood during the hols. For the most part it was flat. Like really flat. Like for a whole month flat.
Well, the bay at least. If you went around the corner things looked a bit better...
As usual for the Dec/Jan period there was plenty of wind, with PE living up to it's name of the Windy City. The kiters didn't mind! We actually only just just pip Cape Town to take out the Windy City claim - you can read more here:
In between the wind there were plenty of lekker days to just chill out on the beach.
Or in the pool....
Or at the point....
Opening of the season went off with it's usual bang, with some kiff fireworks lighting up the beachfront on the 16th December.
Playland at King's Beach also added it's bit to light up the night sky. Possible to hook a quick ride on the Big Wheel after coming back from a late sesh at the Fence!
Plenty of wildlife about as usual. Always happy to have them cruise past you in water - but only after you've seen the second fin. Never lekker to just spot one. As normally if it's just one it ain't friendly!
It isn't a proper summer vacation unless you've leapt off the pillars. It's kinda like a rite of passage for PE lighties. The ballies would probably love to do it to, but just can't climb up the pillar...
Everyone did jump for joy when the big January swell pulled in. From zero to hero literally overnight. It pumped. Properly. Millers was off it's mielie.
So was JBay...
Water so warm you could trunk it.

After a few days of killer surf it was back to the business of being flat again, and life in the bay returned to normal.
Just the usual awesome sunrises and sunsets to remind why we live in Africa!
Back to my normal front yard now, and back in the land of wifi and laptops, so the page will be back to normal again. Thanks for your patience!
