The Older Generations

The older generations are so special. Memories for my parents at Umtentweni Beach.

In 1979 (I was a young boy), we moved to a small village called Umtenweni on the KZN South Coast. We stayed in the Old Tweni Hotel (no longer) for 3 months while our house was being built. The hotel was about 100 metres from the Umtentweni Main beach, so needless to say that is was one of the first beaches we visted as a family.

I spent many years surfing at this beach and have fond memories of the area. I don’t stay too far the beach now and often visit with my son for a quick body surf or to walk my dog.

I am blessed to still have my parents in my life. What an honour it is to be able to create memories for them and at no better place than the first beach we visited.

Thanks mom and dad for all the love and support. I know there was no manual attached when I was born, I think you have done a fine job.
