This is where I am at right now...and outside the window I hear the crashing of waves against the rocks.  Now I can become quiet and reflect on the past few days:-)

The past few days have been hectic.  So much to do and so little time:-)  I did not get my admin up to date...and (shock and horror) I have brought some work with me.  I don't want to even think about it at this time....maybe Monday...and maybe not!

Friday was a great day...because it was the start of our time off.  Wynand turned 29 yesterday and we had lunch at a lovely restaurant overlooking the harbour.  Then we had to rush home to get ready for the Neil Diamond concert.
These photos are all taken off the Algoa FM website and you can see many more HERE.  If you look a few rows behind the Algoa FM logo you will see me with a yellow jersey and DH sitting next to me.  (Maybe you will need a magnifying glass) The Nelson Mandela Stadium was sold out and the atmosphere was amazing.
A very charming man...Neil Diamond.  For two hours we were thoroughly entertained with his ageless  voice, stunning music and amazing lighting.
We clapped, danced and sang...
A Stunning night to remember for a very long time.

This morning DH went to the Mission as we had visitors that wanted to know more about the work we do...and I was off to go and have breakfast with my "heart" sister Shayne.  There is no way that she can visit Port Elizabeth and not see me.  Then I rushed off to pack and now...we are here.  

I told DH that nothing is going to happen "in haste" in the coming days.  We are going to sleep, eat, read and sleep some more.  The most amazing thing is....the QUIETNESS!



  1. OOOH I envy you Lynette! Ooops envy is wrong I know!! Should I say that I am delighted for you & I hope that you have a blessed time of peace & quiet in that idyllic setting. I saw you there in the yellow jersey - without a magnifying glass! Neil Diamond must be pretty old by now but he looks in good shape there :)
