Another week.. great photos

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

The beautiful bridge seen from Ginwali Beach in South Korea where my daughter and her friends spend a lot of their time.

It's winter and dry everywhere but the vineyard makes a perfect backdrop for this stunning pic of my son Mark and his girlfriend Lisa.

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.

The week

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 
and on the other side of the world...

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.
