Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter D – 4 letters words that start with D

Not your ordinary photo challenge, Cee Fun Photo Challenge is going through the alphabet. This week we’re asked to post photos the subject of which starts with the letter D and is 4 letters in length. As Cee says:

You can always use adjectives and adverbs with a specific topic just make sure you give us the word that fits the requirements of this challenge.  Feel free to use your native language as your inspiration for this challenge, just please give us the word in your language and the english translation.  Use your imagination for this theme.  The thing is to have a lot of fun with this challenge.

This week we have dawn, dusk and door.

I love these doors with so much unique character in Lisbon:

A Sunrise Photo This Time!

Gosh, this week was busy and I optimised for time with Che at home in the evenings and did no blogging!

I went to Durban to do some coaching and stayed overnight at Fairlight Beach House in Umdloti north of Umhlanga. Che and I have stayed there before and it’s gorgeous and has prime location on the beach front. It is also built on an elevation so the views are astounding.

I’m not usually a sunrise person, preferring to sleep in until the last responsible moment and as a result this blog has tons of sunset photos. Before this sunsrise photo there are only 2 others.

The morning before going to work was rather relaxing. I had breakfast in the sunny front room and while there a naughty monkey came rushing in and grabbed a packet of butter from one of the other tables. The little thief looked around furtively before rushing out with his bounty. Imagine if he’d managed to grab some sugar…imagine the sugar high.

The day manager told me that the day before a monkey had pulled the same stunt, this time grabbing a muffin from beneath the cloth covering the plate. Monkey, muffin and cloth went flying up into the tree. The muffins must indeed be worth it.

The Durban weather was gorgeous and it was wonderful to get away from cold Joburg even for a day.

There’s lots to do this weekend – I’m going to be getting ready for spending 10 days delivering training in Cape Town next week, and I’ll also be here later on today and on the weekend, so I hope to see you back.
