Day at the beach

To celebrate a successful performance, my classmates and I went to the beach and had a relaxing day. The beach in Durban is absolutely gorgeous. Of course being at a beach resort anywhere is exciting, but to have it topped off with such beautiful scenery and perfect weather is even more exciting.

Even as a fellow African, I would have never imagined such beautiful places existed in South Africa, but gladly I was proved wrong. We all had such a great time relaxing at the beach. After the beach, we went out to an Italian restaurant and concluded the day with delicious food and great conversations.
