Whales and snakes

October 29th, 2006 at 7:21 am by james

We feel a bit like we’ve returned to the wild. Everything seems very new and exciting – the snake falling from a tree in the childrens’ play area, the pod of whales off Nahoon beating their tails against the water to chase sharks. Long may the honeymoon last …

We went out to see Pete & Ros’s new place yesterday. It’s going to be great – it’s in a beautiful location and their enhancements to the property look a lot of fun. I dug a hole. For a short while. When the ringing in my ears and dizziness got too much we went to visit Gareth and Kerry and the boys.

We’re going to have lunch with them today – more swimming and playing and good conversation.

We took Josie’s plasters off last night ahead of snipping stitches today/tomorrow. Less traumatic than the stitching up. Just.

Very frustratingly can’t access email in East London via either dialup or Vodacom. Driving me absolutely nuts (and it’s only 7am).

    I was hoping you would give us some feedback as a tourist here if you don’t mind. We’ve built a website called http://www.East-London-Local.com, it’s targeted at visitors but toward locals too. If you have the time, would you please have a look around the site. While you’ve been here what have you had difficulty finding? Let us know please.

    About the email thing, go for a coffee at Mugg & Bean in Vincent. You can sit down and enjoy a coffee or a meal and use their WiFi connection FREE!

    Hope you enjoy your time here.

    Kind regards
