The next morning, we were all up not to late, dressed and showered by around 10 am. Most of the people went to the rocks on the far end (for those of you who do not know, Ganzekraal is a camping site right next to the ocean) to go "fishing". I did not join them, but from what I heard, they caught
- a lot of seaweed
- a black thing thats sucks with teeth (Mr.Oka's description of it)
- one or two very, very small fish
- a good tan/sunburn
Meanwhile, Anel and I went down to another part of the "beach" (no sand, just stones and rocks), and picked up shells, and just watched the ocean. One part to remember - after I showered, I did not put on shoes. Most people that know me, will know that I do not really walk barefoot, or with sandals.
After the beach/fishing session, Mr.Oka went to dive (with his wet-suit) , and managed to catch .... nothing. During the afternoon, a game of cricket came to live, with some poor shots, worse bowling, and even worse catches (must admit, Wihann made one brilliant catch. One bounce, one hand rule applied).
Once again, those of you that know me, know that I normally dont a) start a fire, and b) do the braai work. Well, Saturday afternoon I was hungry enough to do both! Oh, and all this time, Felix was still sleeping. We actually did not see him again the whole of the weekend.
The rest of the day consisted of good company, good music, Castle and Hunters Dry. Late evening, my feet started getting a bit sore, because of the sun (as the dont see a lot of sun often).
My feet were pink, raw and in terrible pain! I immediately packed up, and went home. It is now Tuesday afternoon, went to the doctor this morning, because the pain was just TO much. I can only go back to work on Friday. Me feet are swelled, and even have infection in them, from the sun.
Still, I whould like to thank my great girlfriend Anel, the birthday boys Wihann and Steve, and the rest of the cast (Salome, Mr.Oka aka Agno aka Arno, Sam, Hendre, Devan, Anre and Nadia, and the rest of the cast, for a great weekend! It was needed!) . Oh, and special guest star : Felix.
No Animals were harmed during the weekend, as the Gorilla stayed at home
I was in Matric in 1999, and if I just followed the advice of Baz Luhrmann, you whould not have been reading this blog just now....
