"How important it is for us to recognise and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!"  

~Maya Angelou

It is not every day that we get to meet our very own local superheroes...but on August 19th, four came a visiting...

They hailed from the valley, from a secret location known as "central HQ". Their gleaming golden charriot cautiously negotiated our little driveway. With expert precision and more than a hint of athleticism, four dapper men dismounted from Firetruck RP38. Superhero capes safely hidden beneath crisp, dark blue uniforms...their only embellishments gleaming smiles...with warm hands and kind hearts they greeted our eagerly awaiting little ones...


... they showed us their superhero fighting attire and helped us climb aboard their golden charriot. Safety beacons in place, we even got to test out their secret weapon - a shiny, long firehose - expertly tucked into the flank of RP38, ready for action when summoned...

...all too soon it was time to leave...RP38 roared into action, his booming siren singing farewell as our superheroes were whisked away to continue their selfless mission to serve our community...

But not before big, strong hugs and cheerful smiles were captured on camera...as a reminder to all that superheroes really are all around us...we just have to take the time to see them...

(*A special word of thanks to Reagen, Alvin, Craig and Amith from eThekwini Fire & Emergency Services for the kind and caring way in which they interacted with our little ones; and for taking the time to come and visit. We rest safely in the knowledge that gentlemen like yourselves are protecting our community)

As always
waiting for our doorbell to ring 
and new joys to come in
Cally, Carron and Corne

  1. This day was memorable for Sanda. She still thanks God for the fire fighters during our family prayers!
