Sun City

We are leaving bright and early tomorrow morning for a holiday at Sun City. I absolutely hate travelling, so am dreading the car trip - but at the end of it we can park the car and not get into it for nearly a week, so that is a big bonus.

We really love Sun City. We don't go in for gambling much, so that side of things doesn't hold much appeal. The reason we go there is for the Valley of the Waves. It is such fun to swim in the "man-made" sea and to float around the moat on a tube. The height of relaxation. Grant and the girls have a whale of a time on the slides, I prefer to sit back and watch!

The Cascades is a beautiful area to walk through, especially the swing bridge. We also enjoy playing putt-putt down at the Cabanas. Occasionally if finances permit, Grant takes the girls para-sailing on the lake at the cabanas too.

All in all it is a wonderful place for a family holiday. There is so much to see and do that we never get it all done, which is why we keep on going back!

It is absolutely mind-boggling to think that this incredible resort has been created in an arid, uninhabited part of the country. There is so much attention to detail and everything is so well maintained. Well worth a visit!
