Photos of our week in Plett...

Thank you for your comments on yesterday's blog.  With the help of Cataflam and a good massage the pain monster has been pushed back below the surface for the time being.  Our regular doctor is going to try and get me an earlier appointment with the rheumatologist.  I have to admit that this is all my own I am very stubborn and should have seen a specialist a long, long time ago.  Anyway....

The day before we left for Plettenberg Bay, we celebrated Wynand's 28th birthday.  I am so proud to be mom to this wonderful young man.  There is still no improvement in his vision and Nadia and DH drives him where he needs to be.  He has been back to work now for two weeks and is trying his best to go on with his life, just as before.

Wynand and Nadia....still sooooo in love:-)
This photo of the Plett bay was taken from the deck of the Rod and Reel restaurant.
I can never get enough of the privileged to live in a coastal town. Photo taken at Keurbooms.
One of the beaches in Keurboom Strand.
Lazing and reading on the lawn in from of the hotel.
I have a very funny man...have threatened to do a scrapping layout of all the pics in which he is playing the fool.
Me....feeding the elephants...messy affair!
It was a wonderful experiencing getting so close to these huge animals and interacting with them.  Although, all they were interested in was whether you have more food for them:)

The most beautiful sunsets....I wish I was a painter...
...and when we got home, our little treasures were waiting for us.
