'Tannie' Johanneke has been following my mom's website for a while and contacted my mom to hear if she and her 4 children could come and meet us one day. They've been on an amazing journey with similarities to ours, and their visit meant a lot to us. We have now made new friends all over the country.
Our other new friends from nearby at the Goukamma Nature Reserve also came for a visit and helped a lot with the ponies ('tannie' Louise and her eldest daughter are great horse lovers). We had fun swimming and folding origami.
Getting Valk into a small enclosed area was a mission the first few times...
Trying join up.
Enjoying the late evening sun.
We also had another friend from Oudtshoorn stay over one night - 'tannie' Nanie enjoyed being so close to nature with us.
Lunch under the tree.
On my mom's birthday, people from the valley and some friends from George all came together for a braai, and despite the weather starting out cold and rainy, it cleared up later the afternoon so we could sit outside. We laughed, star gazed, took a walk, and everyone went home stuffed and happy. The day was good, the food even better and the company the best!
Our very own photoshoot.
