Almost Home

Plett Game Reserve

We are at the tail-end of a wonderful holiday. All of you will have seen the updates/photos on facebook so will know that it has been a simply incredible experience.

The kids are older. This makes the WORLD of difference.

Storms River

 Everyday we were able to adventure out without worrying about juice bottles, naps, changes of clothing or entertainment and snacks for the car. It was a matter of wake up, have breakfast, get in the car and GO.

Knysna Elephant Park

We returned home each afternoon, tired but exhilarated. We spent the late afternoons and evenings either reading or watching a movie/series.

What makes holidays work now is that we are all on the same page. We can enjoy similar activities and downtime is expected and enjoyed.

Tsitsikamma Ziplining Adventures

My only regret is that we didnt get to the beaches....we just didnt have the time as we packed so much into each day. I would have loved to spend more time hiking and walking on the beach. Fortunately Russ and I are headed that way again next month for our anniversary so I will get my wish!

We are leaving Mcgregor this evening - back to reality but I am not deterred. For the first time I am returning from a holiday to my regular life refreshed and ready to take on Term 4!

I love all the photos on this post of yours. Yes, I also sometimes find that we can't visit all the places that we want because we pack our days so full of activities. Although you did not get to visit the beaches, with all these activities, you have all made wonderful memories together.

Ah...now here is all the reason why I love this part of the country:-)

Hopefully tomorrow there will be sun...so we can have two days of beach weather before we have to return to reality.
