On Sunday Feb. 15, five of us drove about an hour to the coast to the small seaside holiday village called Kenton-On-Sea. The drive to Kenton was a picturesque one through lots of game reserves and cattle farms. Kenton is one of many beach resorts that dot the coast and make up the Sunshine Coast in South Africa. It still being summer here, the weather was warm but windy. The Indian Ocean was extremely cold. The town was for the most part deserted as the busy holiday season revolves around Christmas and New Year's. Jacques, a Rhodes Graduate who most of us met when he did a semester abroad at Washington College, drove us there and we just hung out on the beach all day. We ate in a beachside bar where the house specialty was pizza. On the drive home we saw some wild antelope and a monkey trying to cross the road. It was a really nice way to spend a sunday afternoon.
