A quiet morning as we got ready to head home. After breakfast, we packed and hung out around the hotel until Ruth and Lindsay picked us up – again at their insistence. What great friends they have become – we have enjoyed them so much and their hospitality has been extraordinary. They took us for lunch at a private ski club located on a secluded harbor north of the city. There are three ‘clubs’ located side by side – a dive club, a yacht club and a ski club. All are fairly modest but nice, with play areas for the kids, places for families to picnic or brii, a nice beach area, and a bar/restaurant with outdoor picnic table seating. It was quiet today, but Ruth says that it is packed on weekends. I had the ‘line fish’, which is the SA term for fish of the day, and Sharon had an enormous plate of prawns. A perfect ending to our trip. We are in JFK now waiting for our flight to SFO. If all goes well, we should arrive by 2pm and my goal is to be in the shower before 4:00 – can’t wait!!
Home now, with suitcases unpacked, laundry underway and pictures downloaded to Facebook – the essentials taken care of. Memories that will last a lifetime – priceless!
