The Group (l to r): Craig, Laura, Robert, Kathy, Jim, Robin and Graham
27 September 2011
Hello everyone! I hope this 3rd installment of photos and news from South Africa finds you well!
We are not long back from a wonderful visit to our favourite South African National Park and to Namibia, the country which lies to the north of South Africa. In 33 days, the seven of us - Robert and me, our son Graham, our daughter Laura and her partner Craig, and Craig’s parents Kathy and Jim - traveled just over 5100km. We brought back many fond memories and over 6000 photos (that’s just Robert’s and my tally).
Kathy and Jim arrived in Cape Town from Canada via Heathrow at the end of July on the first rainy day that we had experienced in Cape Town in a month. Up until their arrival, Cape Town had been experiencing an unseasonably dry and remarkably warm winter, with bright, sunny days and daytime temperatures in the low to mid 20s. Perfect weather from my perspective! We met Kathy and Jim, who looked remarkably chipper given the two long flights they had just endured, at the airport and, over the next month, took them to visit some of Craig and Laura’s and Robert’s and my favourite places in Southern Africa.
