We have spent a couple of nights here awaiting the arrival of the rest of the Kotze's. It is very hot and sandy but there is a pool Yiippeee!
J.P left early to collect his sister Leslie and brother in-law Simon from Windhoek. Just after he left I was scared out of my wits by the security guard (or burgular as I thought) trying to break in to our hut (we couldn't use the roof top tent as he had the car!) he didn't manage to get it but I did spend the next hour and a half sitting waiting for it to get light with a maglite in one hand and a machete in the other!!! Anyway I survived until they got back! The guard was just checking he thought J.P had checked out without leaving the key, but I didn't know that!!!
Anyway... We had a lovely day relaxing by the pool and haggeling at the craft market buying a huge giraffe and hippo!! (Well I have a container to get it back!) Then the rest of the gang arrived J.P's brother Jimmy and sister in-law Jo and the children Kenan and Kelsey. A big family reunion and a braai (BBQ for those non-SA) before bed!
Oh I nearly forgot the most important thing! Jimmy brought my ring! I had to leave it in Cape town at the begining of the trip as firstly it would be a bit dangerous having a rock on my finger advertising an easy steal. also I didn't want to get it dirty and scratched (I'm such a girl) and the jeweller needed the ring to fit the wedding ring round it (he has done that now so we can pick them up when we get back!)
