Soaking up the sunshine in Santa Monica

by Louise Evans on 30 June 2014, 11:06AM Soaking up the sunshine in Santa Monica It’s not often you’re actively encouraged to eat sweet treats in Santa Monica, Los Angeles. In fact, this beach city on the West Coast is renowned for its all-round healthy-living lifestyle. From eating to exercising, Soulcycle (a spinning class in a club environment), IOBELLA (exercising in temperature-controlled pods), M7 fitness (a private pilates centre) and beach yoga are popular and sought-after fitness trends here. The laid-back outdoor healthy lifestyle is the norm. The famed local farmers market (with street stalls on Arizona and Second Street every Wednesday and Saturday) is the bread and butter of the Santa Monica scene, with most of the restaurants chefs sourcing their food fresh as well as many if the avid locals. The farm-to-fork movement isn’t just a mant...

I have lived here for nearly 40 years and married my sweetheart Angela in 1992 in a beautiful ceremony on the Siria Escarpment overlooking the Masai Mara’s animal speckled plains (thinking of a Honeymoon location – this is it!). A year later w...

Animal magic at Shamwari Game Reserve

Animal magic at Shamwari Game Reserve

We were tracking an elephant, which was playing hide and seek with us when suddenly our vehicle came to an abrupt stop. Our ranger, Westley, let out a soft squeal of excitement, while pointing to a reddish catlike shadow. This was the first time we heard our normally cool and collected ranger, Westley, change his pitch of voice. So we didn’t know whether to be worried or scared. Composing ...
