Surf, sleep, braai

Now we were at a very exciting part of our trip. Jeffrey’s bay! For many surfers (speaking of John here, as my surfing prowess wouldn’t even get me out of the bunny surf) this is Mecca! On a good day, the waves form perfect tubes that you ride so far, once you finally bail off the wave, your walk back to where you started from is 15-20 minutes! But first we had to get there… via The Garden Route.

This is beautifully scenic drive with all kinds of hikes and fields and streams to see. And there are so many little shops to buy antiques and curios, and a few biltong roads snacks. And what a scenic drive it was!

And in just a little while, we were there! John wasted no time getting suited up and heading out to the beach!

It was a great 3 days of hanging out at the beach, relaxing and cooking at “home”.

On our last day, we find out the whole bay is moving over to wind power (cool!) but what that meant is for a whole day, no electricity! So we found ways to pass the time.

Kidding; there was more of this:

We had a great braai dinner and now to the most exciting part of our trip: the international convention in Harare, Zimbabwe!
