So, I spent 2 weeks with my dad. Really strange for it to be just the 2 of us. We had a great time, lots of adventuring.
We spent one of the days in Hermanus. I’ve never been there. Its a beautiful town, alas no whales at this time of year.
The drive back to Gordons Bay was wonderful. Theres a stretch of several kilometres that has Proteas growing wild. All shades from purple through to pink, and, white, never seen white ones before, I felt like a child wandering through them, delighting in this wonderment of nature.
And my Dad’s doing well. We had a small celebration of my mums life on the 31st May. (It would’ve been their 54th wedding anniversary) There was masses of laughter and some tears. I loved listening to my dad talking about him and my mum when they were dating, and then the early years of their marriage. Wonderful memories, that bring a smile and a tear.
