Gosh, thanks sooo soo much for all your well wishes for our 20th Wedding anniversary. We got back last night and I'm still struggling today to find my head. I think it's still on holiday and hopefully it will return tomorrow- hahaha.

We caught the very early morning flight from Port Elizabeth to Durban -


The view of my little City Port Elizabeth from the air ;-)

My hubby spoiled me rotten - OY, he had organized a full suite in a Hotel that I hadn't stayed in before. He knows I like to explore and *new and unknown* is always so much more exciting.


The Entrance to the Sibaya Hotel Resort.

We brought the wind and rain with us from Port Elizabeth ( renowned for it's wind and called the *windy City*- hee hee)


The Casino Entrance


The Suite, which isn't done justice with this photo- but it had a lounge, little dining room, kitchenette


full MES (with slippers and robes- lol) , guest bathroom, and a little patio overlooking gardens and pool.


FOOD, that's what that grin says- lol


The Hotel Bar (empty at 9am in the morning- hahaha)


Outside has these water features the full way around the hotel.


The pool area outside our suite doors ;-)


Taking a stroll and tired of the camera in his face- hahahaha.

I also had one of the BEST meals I have ever had on the night of our anniversary- my hubby is a *closet* romantic I tell you. The hotel has one fantastic seafood restaurant called Aqua, and I don't know how or when he had organized it- but he told me he had booked for 8pm and that he thought seafood would be a good choice ( it's my spoil me dinner usually-lol).

OMG, when we got there and he said our names- they said OH YES- and I KNEW something was up- aaaaahhhhhhhhhh, he had organized a little * round booth table* like you see only on TV- lol. With candles, long stemmed roses in the centre - and some arranged on  my plate too with my fav chocs ( a HUGE box) tied with big bows on the table.

We shared a seafood platter with crayfish, prawns, calamari, muscles etc etc etc and sat there for hours yakking. I can't say what those *little things* meant- so much MORE than just a trinket handed over in a box- KWIM? Thanks Waynie for my wonderful *second honeymoon*- sure looking forward to the *third*- lol
