Life’s a Beach 4 Science-backed reasons why spending time at the beach is good for your body and mind…Summer is around the corner and it’s nearly time to pack away the Winter woollies and dust off our beach towels for another sunshine season. We are very lucky at Pine Lodge Resort to enjoy a uniquely serene stretch of coastline within the access-controlled Cape Recife Nature Reserve.

This got us thinking about why people are so drawn to the sea, and we stumbled upon some exciting new research. As it turns out, spending time at the beach can have real benefits for your mind and body, and it’s got a lot to do with our senses. Check out these 4 benefits of spending your time sea-side.

Marine Bird Rehabilitation in Port Elizabeth

Feb 15th, 2018|

Marine Bird Rehabilitation in Port Elizabeth In the late 1960s, a remarkable woman named Althea Louise Burman Westphal set up a temporary station at her home in Claremont to treat oiled penguins, after realising that the SPCA’s facilities were not suitable for this task. The Esso Essen spill was the first of the major recognised spills and Althea began rehabilitating 60 badly oiled penguins. In those days, the birds were scrubbed with Sunlight soap, three at a time in Althea’s bathroom and rinsed with a hose. She fed them long strips of hake, which had been dipped in cooking oil.
