Escaping to Witsand and surviving the last 3 chaotic days in Mossel Bay

We always enjoy it to visit our eldest daughter Hanli, her husband Leon and our grandson Troi Boy. They stay on the Pretorius family’s smallholding in the centre of Witsand. Leon manages the Breede River Resort & Fishing Lodge and he and Hanli are also the Franchise holders of Rawson Properties, Witsand. We were booked into a very luxurious room in the lodge and were being spoiled from the moment we arrived. We came back to Mossel Bay early Monday morning for a last rush to finish off every and any thing that we still had to do.  What a chaotic week it was!!!   Hennie & Juanita took us out for dinner at Delfino’s at the Point Monday evening  where we had a little celebration that had all of us except Juanita a bit tired on Tuesday morning.  Hennie & Juanita took us out for dinner at Delfino’s at the Point Monday evening  where we had a little celebration that had all of us except Juanita a bit tired on Tuesday morning.  Tuesday we had a dentist appointment and Arno washed the vehicle and then started  packing the Hilux. I, believe it or not……, was showing properties to clients!! This took a 4 hour chunk out of my day. The long and the short of the story is that we did not sleep more than 3 – 5 hours the last 3 nights before we left Mossel Bay, working about non-stop to get every thing in order, do all the admin, contact everyone that has to be contacted etc.etc. Luckily for us, Hennie were very helpful and he suggested that he will sort out the Benz that still had to be washed and whatever we could not finish.   Wednesday evening we had a braai at my brother Lucas that stays next door to us. He also opted to do things for us while we are away from home.  Lucas had a bottle of bubblies on ice for this special evening before our adventure starts.  We had a lovely evening in the good company of Lucas, Hennie and Juanita and then went home to pack our personal things.IMG_5590_1
