At Santos Haven, a residential village on the outskirts of Mossel Bay, Rich's grandparents from two sides of the family, Grandpa Tom and Granny Pat, had both recently moved into Frail Care rooms. We spent the next three days visiting Grandpa, who has limited mobility due to a stroke, in his room every morning and evening. He was in good health and excellent spirits, and had hundreds of questions about our trip.
Our base was the traditional family haunt, The Island at Great Brak, where aunt Sheila and family had rented a house for a couple of weeks. Cousin Shaun and family were visiting from Denver, Colorado; we met their second child Nathan for the first time and shared in his first birthday party on 24 March. Inbetween visits to Santos Haven, we filled our days and evenings with barbeques, trips to the beach, and plenty of chat!
What a marvellous opportunity to catch up with everyone. Certainly the timing for our visit couldn't have been better. Seeing Shaun, Soly and family was a real bonus.
