Aimee, Cathy and I went on to Cape Town and had a wonderful time with old friends of mine Bridget and Colin. They live just north of Cape Town in a little town called Noordhoek. We were in the Cape for 5 days and Bridget and Colin took us a wide variety of was places in the area. What I love about South Africa is all the color!
We were also fortunate to travel a little north and see all the daisies. As it was early spring everything was in full bloom. What an inspiring sight. They spread for quiet a long way up the coast and the colors of the ocean and surrounding rocks is awe inspiring.
It was wonderful to be back at our bushhouse in Olifants. It is the most relaxing and inspiring place on this planet. We flew from London to Johannesburg and then onto Hoedspruit. We were picked up by a driver in our land drover. Filled it with all our luggage and then went into town to shop for food and wine for the next few weeks.
The day we arrived was Aimee’s 18th birthday so we took her to lunch at a wonderful restaurant in town called Sleepers. It was great to sit outside and enjoy the African sun.
I have had many emails wondering if I was okay after our wonderful vacation. Thanks so much for caring. Yes I am great just a little behind with my blog but hope to catch up this week as I am spending a couple of quiet days here in Spokane with my family. I would also like to thanks Wendy for keeping up with the blog while I was gone. Her pictures were stunning!
As I sit here and write this my dear sister Sue is in the air and on her way here to Spokane. We will be hitting the road tomorrow to take Jason to Ellensburg where he will start his first year at Central Washington University. We will then get to spend a few days together before she moves on to her next teaching assignment. Life has been very busy so hopefully we can do a little catching up.
I came across this website today thanks to the Mason-Dixon knitting blog and decided it needed to be posted here.
