Let's meet on the beach

High summer in South Africa 
and off to the beach house for the next two months
I shall post from there and share some 
sun, beach and summer holiday activities

the "home of a fisherman" is a tease.. -since hubby really does not fish
except diving for crayfish in season (does that count?)

It has been a while since we have had the opportunity to take time off and just be..
on arrival we take the boardwalk down
to Breakfast bay
before unloading and settling in
there is no rush at all....

so long for now..
unplugging here and loading the car
   sun block  check
    costumes   check
    books        check
camera  check 
Ipad       check
dogs  check
people  check
note to myself:
..remember to stop at farmstall on the way for 
fresh fruit and veggies

It is an honor that you would take the time to visit while reading your family for a holiday trip.
