Winter warmth

Posted on Mon July 19, 2010.

A cup upon cups of steaming hot cocoa was about the only relief, apart from the warm fire burning away in the restaurant, chasing the chill of the winter air. Yes, we kept warm. I squawked at the site of our visitors from England in their short sleeved tops, huge smiles, trying their best to convince us South African’s that ‘ no mate, this is nothing’, just after returning from a 2 hour fishing safari down the Vaal river. Must have been the two huge yellow carp that might have added to the warmth of their spirits. Or perhaps I’d love to believe…. I am proudly South African after all ;)
