Holiday pics!

Here is our pool filled with water at last, it is finally finished!!!

We left for Cape Town at 4.30am on Sunday morning, and decided to drive straight through instead of sleeping over somewhere. We got here at about 10pm on Sunday night and fell into bed!We had a disastrous day on Monday as Mark woke up with his elbow terribly swollen and very painful so we spent hours at the ER where he was sent for xrays and then to an orthopedic surgeon who had to drain out some fluid, and he is back on antibiotics.

The weather here is beyond hot, almost unbearable as far as I am concerned, but the kids love it and are already so tanned. Yesterday I spent the day with Bonnie my sister and brother and family who live in New Zealand but are here on vacation. I have not seen them for 3 years so it was really wonderful seeing them again.

I have recently bought the same camera as Bonnie and she gave me some lessons on how to use it, I was so excited about the close ups I took!

Some other photos taken at the Vergelegen Wine Estate yesterday.
Bonnie and I playing the fool as usual!
I am allowed to give you a tiny clue as to where I will be selling next year......ESS...more clues to follow!!

Love the new photo's and am wishing I was in that warm spot instead of snow and bitter cold. Your pool looks fantastic. A silky dip on a hot day... Hope your husbands arm is getting better. Men are so grumpy when they are hurt. Sisters are great, hope you both have a wonderful visit.
