    ... falls apart on that dusty, sandy road up north! PS thought I would include a pic which TK took of deceased 'Cecil' the lion in 2014 while we were in Hwange - what a shame this magnificent Male had to be hunted and baited out of his territory for the satisfaction of a trophy for the American client!! Boy is he now in BEEG trouble! With his past track history he deserves to be hunted down and brought back to face the wrath of the Zimbabwean courts! Cheers from dizzy ...

    We set off from Jeffrey's Bay along the very scenic Garden Route towards Knysna.

    On the way, we passed a sign that read "highest bungee jump in the world"

    When we were a safe distance from the sign Charlie said "Aww, that's a shame, I would have quite liked to have jumped that". Dad immediately put the car in to reverse and started heading towards the sign.

    Charlie - Whats happening, where are ...

    ... Only a week or so to go but hey that’s fine. All good things… Sue and Bruce kindly offered to bring me some food as I was being belligerent about leaving the camp as I was feeling a bit caged and frustrated. I was therefore consigned to the swimming pool and the sun shine for the afternoon!
