    The views of the coastlines on both sides of the peninsula are amazing. We just loved it. We also found many new and strange creatures on the sandy beaches that were washed ashore. Snail like molluscs called Whelks could be seen eating jelllyfish that were stranded on the beach.

    ... there with my father some years before he died. It is still the wonderful place I remembered - standing proudly at the end of the bay with the beach on one side and the surf and rocks on the other.

    ... and spoke to him. He’s in his eighties, at my estimation. He’s from Cambridge and bought this place in 1978, the year I was born. They moved here two years later. He and his wife had 62 happy years together but he lost her two years ago.

    ... Ella jokingly tells us that the "Big Five" of the Townships are the cow, pig, donkey, goat and dog. They are all around roaming freely on the streets.

    While the living conditions here in the Township are not the best, there does seem to be a strong sense of community where the "it takes a village" theme is alive and well. Friends and family take care of each other and help each other out. And, Ella is a perfect example of one ...
