    Running App Review: Strava

    So I started the App review with Strava. I chose to use Strava Specifically for Feb knowing that Feb has less days than other months.

I also love the fact that it does not only track roads, but…

    Where do Sea Shells come from

    Where do shells come from, and how are they made? Sea shells are as interesting to adults as they are to children. Fascinating to both in their beauty and mystery. We almost annually visit Stilbaai. This is a small-town in the Western Cape, South-Africa. Stilbaai is a small coastal town – they have a website with all their activities and information if you click HERE . My Husbands Parents live here full time now, and is truly is a privilege to be able to come here and spend a whole month on holiday. The first 2 weeks before Christmas is usually crazy with all the matrix that come here for matrix vac, but…
