South African Lighthouse No. 19

A Stubby Little Zebra

The Cape St Lucia Lighthouse is even shorter than Great Fish Point's, but having been built on a hill means that at just 8 metres tall it still gets the job done.

I know you can find the Jolly Rubino shipwreck close by, but remember - that wasn't the lighthouse's fault, it was all because of a fire onboard.

For me, what is most notable of this little lighthouse, is the fact that it was the only one in South Africa where a female lighthouse keeper was ever employed (Mrs Coward, 1942 - 1946).

Being Good in Bed & Other Unwholesome Habits

How are those New Year's Resolutions working out for you?
Sticking to my new morning routine is one that continued to kick my ass right into October. I was pretty motivated to kick off my newly designed routine but a few weeks into 2017 it tanked. Hard.

Living comfortably is a privilege not afforded to many and all things considered, I must admit that my life actually is quite plush. I have room to be lazy in, including - but not limited to - sleeping in almost daily. Maybe that's how I got all fluffed up. (I literally - and I do mean LITERALLY - piled on the body mass of an average sized person*, except it was all excess fat.)
The Why Whatever the reason(s) behind my massive weight gain over the past 15 years, I've finally had enough when it dawned on me that although weight has nothing to do with worth or beauty, lab results are the kind of numbers you need to pay attention to (more on this later).

I was done with my lack of discipline.

I was done with unhealthy choices…
