Christmas at the beach... not what I grew up with... but the sand is nearly as white as snow. On Saturday the 24th of December, Timo, Andy and Michael went to the beach at Uilenkraalsmond with the dogs, Billy and Max (alias King Kong), for a swim in the surf!
On Christmas' Eve, we had a nice braai at our friends and neighbours Lance and Jean, with their two children Dylan and Jade. Lance got a brand new guitar from Jean for Christmas, and Andy and Lance were jamming the whole evening...
We would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2006! I would like to thank everyone for supporting us throughout 2005!
Merry Christmas!

On Sunday the 25th of December, we had a feast in the afternoon celebrating Christmas... Gamon, Yellowtail, beer bread, Jean's stuffed chillies and peppers, etc... And it was one of the first real summer days... it was a warm day despite the strong southeasterly winds...
