40/52 - Walking Stick

This one is the Father Person's creation, a branch rescued from the collapsed half of our Pride of India and carved and crafted into a walking stick which came in handy on our recent hike through the Whale Trail

39/52 - Limoncello

The Limoncello was ready just in time to give some gifts before we move, and 'm looking to enjoying some this summer on our new patio!

So...The Whale Trail

We had the amazing opportunity of taking a week out of our every day lives, leaving the children in the capable hands of their grandparents and spending it walking through the amazing De Hoop Nature Conservancy on a hike better known as The Whale Trail.
It really was a wonderful experience, the scenery was exquisite, the fauna and flora diverse, the whales majestic, the accommodation endearing, the company entertaining, the food delicious and the wine good (if slightly rationed...probably just as well though, walking with a sore head would not be much fun I'm sure!)

These are some snaps I had on my phone, but I have more to share once I get a chance to upload the ones from the camera.

We are winding up things on this side and busy doing lots of packing, but here are a few snaps from the last download from my camera
1.  Celebrating a goal at his last session of Little Kickers
2.  Slip & sliding at our friend's farm
3.  Dancing
4.  Concentrating very hard...don't you love the hair, she did it herself :)
