Alternative route

Driving between Charters and Fanies need not be boring. The old road has some spectacular views.

Sunset at St Lucia Estuary

Stil the best place in the world to be.

iMfolozi River flowing

Not strong but constantly. This will have an impact on fishing conditions along the coast North and South of the iMfolozi River. With Atum approaching fast weather conditions will change daily if not hourly. This will again lead to discussions about the effectiveness of weather forecast by the weather sites all around the world.

Do we expect a breach at the mouth this equinox ... maybe not. But a Cyclone from Mozambique might just do the trick. This will not be a lengthy opening or a sustained opening of the mouth.The main reasoning about this could be that Trees are planted all along the catchment area of the five rivers feeding the Lake system. No quota system is in place to control this.

The rapidly increase of the demand for sugar also has a very adverse effect on the water tables, soil erosion and natural forests. And we worry about Global warming ... yeah right ...
