Our weekend started off well with a fly-in to the Aloe Wildlife Estate near Pietermaritzburg this morning and yummy breakfast there for all.

Our nephew Josh, who is in his own right an amazing musician, needed some accommodation for his mates who were coming to Durban for a gig, so we were delighted to have musician and composer Glen Hartmann and Kelly Mole (sister of the successful local Matthew Mole) come stay with us.
Glen's beautiful music vid of his song "Home, I saw" has just been released on iTunes and can be viewed from this link here. Like Glen on Facebook here.

Kate-Lynn's crew in Busan, South Korea, just won a silver medal in their Whale Boat Race. Awesome team, well done.
|Kate is the one holding the oar up of course|
|Great race to win the Silver Medal|
It was also Mark's last few days in warm Durban before heading back to the freezing and wet Cape winter. Saturday we had a family lunch to say goodbye and today I took him to the airport for the flight home to Stellenbosch where he is doing his Masters in Engineering.
