Good bye Port Owen!

We've waited and prepared so long, and then it happened so fast, we even sailed away for the here I am only now! Everything was packed and filled and bought and polished and even the dinghy got a new cover made for the harsh sun in the future! And pardon me, but it was made by me, and if you think that is a miracle, this is the miracle! I used my little Singer machine, which I bought with my study money from the education Dpt in 1984!! The machine survived and only 6 needles were sacrificed...I almost did not.

In the mean time Janlie got a job, also behind a machine and helped Marianne sew some marquee tents for weddings and functions all over S.A. Johan and Marco really tried hard to find time to have fun in water, with their submarine going places!

The night before we spend with Gideon and Vanessa sipping red wine to calm the excited nerves, and said good bye to friends popping in. Early the next morning the last bulb was replaced, fresh fruit and bread were shopped, and dear Allan and Ursula stood on the jetty waving all of us in tears, or at least a very masculine lump in some throat...
