A couple of months ago I won a two nights Protea Hotel voucher in a competition and the expiry date started to approach so we decided to not go out of town for it but rather enjoy a weekend "holidaying" in our own home town. The KidZ stayed at their grandparents and the Damselfly and I just planned a weekend of relaxing and walking on the beachfront. Believe it or not, it actually felt like we were somewhere else. We didn't have the KidZ being hungry or thirsty or tired all the time and didn't have to rush because we had to get home. We could have an afternoon nap or just sit and enjoy the view. Walked all the way to the harbour wall and spent an hour watching a Nippers competition on Kings Beach. And the weather played along beautifully. It was pure bliss. The cherry on top? A sea view room on the sixth floor. Nice!
