Indian Summer: trip to Shelley Beach

It’s a holiday weekend and our long summer continues with some very hot weather.  Kate and I invited Luke to Shelley Beach at Kenton on Sea to escape to some cooler conditions.  After the long trudge up over the dunes (carrying Luke …) we saw there was hardly anyone there – as usual.  We had a great time relaxing in some big waves, shepherding Luke over the rocks and pools and eating a nice picnic in the shade of the big cliffs.  We drove back into some serious heat, 38 according to the Rhodes weather station, and we were teated to seeing an elephant from the main road to Grahamstown. He was at Kariega’s waterhole just after you leave Kenton.  When we got back our swimming pool was only  24 degrees so we got straight back into the water!

Here’s a few pictures capturing the spirit of a lovely day out.
