Port Elizabeth season opens
The fireworks at the opening of the season just get better and better ... take a look at this photo by The Herald photographer Fredlin Adriaan ... and there was half an hour of brilliant flashes like this in the night sky at Shark Rock pier here in Port Elizabeth last night. The Herald reported today that there were 100,000 people and I could well believe it. The weather was perfect, around 22 degrees C and only a tiny breeze.
Oh, and Freshly Ground, the group performing after the fireworks, were fabulous. Port Elizabeth rocks!
Tip for next time though: take the Schoenies road round to Summerstrand, or leave home before 7pm or you won't get there by the time the show starts at 8.30.
I am the women's editor at The Herald in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, working on the weekly tabloid insert La Femme. I believe men and women have more in common than they think ... OK, we do tend to eat more chocolate ... so this blog, although ostensibly about all things female - the F-World - is really a light-hearted look at life.
