KwaZulu-Natal, April to July 2015 - Clansthal

We had a long weekend at Clansthal beach in May with 2 other Richmond couples. We had great weather and a lovely quiet beach, in fact we're going for another long weekend in August.

Amelia, Geoff, Paula, Kevin and Ian. We had a great lunch at the campsite pub which has a deck looking our to the sea.

In the evening we had a sing-song with Ian who plays well and has a good voice.

Fishermen on the rocks on Clansthal beach.

Scottburgh in the far distance. Despite being the May holiday weekend there were very few people on the beaches.
