Durban Skyline from the Pier

A bit of Durban skyline from the pier. 

Here’s an interesting view of the durban skyline from the pier at Bay of Plenty. Waves break on the beach, and it looks like there is a surfer in the water.

The Durban skyline feaatures a mix of old and new buildings. That’s particularly interesting to me. A huge re-development of the Durban beachfront occurred in time for the 2010 All Africa games.

I lived in Durban for three years, ending in 1981. Until I was 18, our annual holiday to the Kwazulu-Natal South Coast always featured a Durban visit. Here, in 2017 there are still older buildings and parts of the beachfront which are recognisable.

While Durban is still one of my favourite cities, with many memories, I do still prefer the Kwazulu-Natal coastline as a place to get away. Like our trip to Umdloti in 2017, which, of course, was the reason for this Durban visit.
