CaravanParks.com has just got word from Rocky bay Caravan Park that the Sardines are here...   Book you accommodation along the KZN South Coast and view the worlds largest annual marine migration.

Sardine Festival 2011 “Each year an unbelievable feeding frenzy takes place in the oceans of South Africa as billions of sardines migrate up the Kwa Zulu Natal coast creating a unique and exhilarating experience for divers, birders, whale watchers and anglers.

In celebration of this annual marine phenomenon the South Coast presents a host of activities and events to keep you busy as you anticipate the first sightings of sardines.”

Post your views and photos about current and past Sardine events in this string…

Gister hier by ons groot skole by Ramsgate en Margate uitgekom. Wat n pragtige gesig. Ek hoop net die winter vakansiegangers sal dit ook kan belewe.

Ons drink uit die piering want ons koppie loop oor.

This was in front of Warnerdoone lifesaving club today... you see those buildings in the background...

One of those buildings are now built on the old Pot Luck Caravan Park site, we as a family lived in this park for a few years until about 1992.  It was a run down park.

It was in Pot Luck Caravan Park were my love for caravans begun....  I lived in a blue / white Sprite caravan that had a stable door...  it was completely gutted, had no wheels and the whole kitchen was pulled out of it.. it stood on bricks, but that did not matter to me, because it also had my Technics Hi-fi inside of it...

I had cut / trim my double bed with a jig saw to make it fit inside my caravan, providing me a massive one bedroom inside.  It was awesome...

I now run CaravanParks.com... surely I must of got all the Luck from that good old "Pot Luck" after it closed down in 1992.  That park will always be in my heart, best location ever, on the beach, near shops, bus stop and station. 

Then exactly where these sardines came out today...  This where my dad and I fished most of our lives, catching dinner way back when we were "previously disadvantaged "  hahaha... best time of my life...  

Only 47 foot steps from my bed onto the beach ...

Yes it was great winter beach weather today... not this blistering hot summer sun and well Durban does not actually have a winter.

I added a few extra photos to the gallery.

Just a question which I have been wondering about: What happens to the many buckets full of sardines harvested on the beaches?

My kleinkinders van Pretoria kuier tans hier by ons in Uvongo. Vanmiddag na n lekker braai is ons met hulle na St Michaels strand om op die sand te gaan speel. Gelukkig vir hulle (en ons) maak n skool sardientjies hulle opwagting. Groot pret toe hulle (en talle vakansiegangers) hande vol sardientjies kon oes. Voorwaar n groot belewenis!!!!!!!!

Ons drink uit die piering want ons koppie loop oor.

Lekker om te oes en uit te haal. Helse werk om alles skoon te maak.

2018 has been a very good sardine run and it does not seem to be over yet. I make a point each year to try and go searching for them. Normally it is all driving and no success and I guess it was about 6 years ago when we last had any success.
