I can never say it often enough, how lucky we are to have this Durban winter weather. I got up before dawn this morning for a flight with my student pilot and then at 9am we were at the beachfront for the Color Run Festival basking in 25c winter sunshine.

It's truly amazing to see how many people, both gay and straight, have adopted the Facebook rainbow filter in support of the USA Supreme Court decision to uphold marriage equality and ban any of the States from imposing a ban or restriction. It's about time, but great and welcome news.

Nothing better than a public holiday to get up early and have some fun in the city. 10km cycle along the Durban beachfront followed by breakfast was the way to go. It's the same time of year as the 2010 World Cup Football in Durban and the weather again is absolutely stunning. Beach weather, suntanning and the perfect time to be outdoors.

SinderFella is the hilarious and entertaining adult pantomime with all of our favourite Durban drag artists in top gear this year.
Durban View Guesthouse made up a table of 10 and we all laughed so much, it really was a fun evening and one of the best of the adult pantos which see their 16th year in Durban over the festive season.
Tickets are R150 and can be booked through the link here. Be sure not to miss out on Anthony Stonier and Thomie Holthausen's best show ever.
|Guests Bertus, Hennie, Ralph, Andre, Stefan and Freddie at SunCoast before the show|

1 December, 10 years anniversary, 100 years combined age, we were married today in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand - Dave and Llewellyn, owners of Durban View Guesthouse.
What an awesome day and special memories as we traveled so far to tie the knot in terms of the New Zealand legislation as well as a marriage in terms of our own South African Civil Union Act, 2006 in this beautiful spot at Paihia in the Bay of Islands, North island, New Zealand.
|The seagulls are chasing the rose petals we threw into the water, them hoping they were something tasty to eat... Dave and Llewellyn|
|Michael, the New Zealand Marriage Celebrant officiated at the ceremony|
|The deed is done and we are married on the rocks as the tide came in - hopefully the marriage will not be "on the rocks". The colour of the jeans are "coral" for those inquisitive.|

|After changing we took the ferry across to the other side of the mainland to the town of Russell for some time on the beach and lunch|

|After catching the ferry back we took a drive to the nearby Haruru Falls|
|This was 8.30pm walking to the fabulous restaurant we found the day before and to have dinner on our wedding night|
|The beef steak was fantastic.. just the NZ prices had us reeling in anguish - 3 times the prices of home|
|Wedding night dinner at Alfresco's, Paihia, Bay of Islands.. the end to a perfect day!|
