Flora and Fauna on the coast

Salt Rock is part of a suburban area which is north of Durban. Suburbia seems to have neither a beginning nor an end, it stretches over miles and miles along the beach. A coast road winds up and down through an endless number of hills. The sea is pretty rough, but its water fairly warm. On the beach we see hordes of crabs which hide under the rocks as soon as we spot them.

We watch a group of dolphins riding the waves like surfers do. They skillfully manage to swim on the rim of the waves. Every now and then one of the dolphins jumps out of the water and shows his grey body. The flora on the coast is lush (subtropical) with a great variety of trees including palm trees. There are colourful birds with long tails (makes them look like skites) and even monkeys.
