After putting it out there to the Universe a couple of weeks back, Big U kicked into action almost immediately and we found ourselves on our way to our first family adventure of 2017 – No.15 Something Wet. (An Open Letter to the Universe – #17adventures)
First up on our 2017 adventure experiences was a family kayak and lilo adventure with Untouched Adventures up the Storms River Gorge. We prefer to gift each other experiences instead of things, and this was Ralph’s present for his New Year birthday. Paddling up a pristine gorge on bright red kayaks and heavy duty lilos sounded incredible and we decided to make a weekend of it with camping in the Storms River National Park.
Its thirty something degrees. The humidity is close to a hundred and there is not a breath of wind to cool things down. As I lie on the scorching sand and watch my kids swimming in the waves through a shimmering haze of heat, I realise that we have survived yet another white Christmas.
Here is a mix of some of the drone footage we have taken of our home town, the beautiful city of Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. We hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed filming it!

Although we have lived in the surfing mecca of Port Elizabeth for 10 years, we have never been surfing. We decided it was time to change that, and went for our very first family surf lesson at Oceanside Surf Store with our fabulous 5-in-1 Nelson Mandela Bay passes.
