Umbilo River

Each day thousands of cars pass this little stretch of the Umbilo river, but I wonder how many of the occupants even see the beauty that is hiding here.

Sitting in the car after a day at the office, fighting with the traffic at the intersection on the way home, it's not easy to see over the guard-rail to enjoy this bit of paradise.

I wonder how many locals who visit this blog would have any idea where this picture was taken. To be fair, I'll give a hint - its about 15km from Durban's city center. Tomorrow I'll post another clue, and for those who regularly travel this route, you'll recognise it immediately.

It looks like a very peaceful place but you say that the traffic is huge at this place, it's surprising.

That's a gorgeous picture - what a shame that most people miss it!

Thanks for visiting and leaving comments on Glasgow DP - I do appreciate it!

Lived in Umbilo/Glenwood area 25 years ago (now Australia) but can't place this little spot!

Wondering if it's near King Edward Hospital (still there?) or Penzance road (old primary school)

Might just have to wait for next clue!!
