    We went down to Isipingo / Tiger's Rock over the long weekend and I have to admit, it was quite beautiful there. Lovely shallow diving pools and plenty of marine species to be found. What disgusted me was the level of pollution evident there. I really feel Durban Metro should take this to task. Further down the South Coast, towards Park Rynie, we did not find any butterflies, angel fish etc, and I feel this may be due to pollution too. What a pity.

    My parents are at Park Rynie at the moment, they do the pensioners winter caravan thing. Although my old man is way to old to go jumping into rock pools. And I doubt my mom would let him get close to the rocks, neither the other old folks that knows them. 2 years ago he had a bad fall on those rocks feeding the dassies (rock hyrax).

    Lots of plastic on the beach and in between rocks. Not nice to cleanup behind other people.

    Funny I was also at Isipingo / Tiger's Rocks on Monday - flip it is filthy. Couldn't believe the rubbish.

    I'm more down the south coast,due to the rains we had and rivers that came down,everything was dirty but I will agree they need to do a good clean up on the rocks and on the beaches
