So we had a teeny bit of rain here in Hout Bay today ... this is the river in front of the house ...

and this is the braai area ... probably a good thing we are not trying to braai on Saturday :D

White river rafting.. oh goodie must we bring our own rubber ducky!!!!
Must have been quite a sight and that really decides you on NOT to braai.

Okay...so there are two options here..either it is a "OMW" moment or a "Oh sh*t" moment.....
I guess this is a serious " oh sh*t" moment and if you dare change back to the original plan of having a braai I am not coming...it is as simple as that !!!!! :evil:
Crazy weather here in CT....

It's STILL raining ... really hope the river doesn't flood its banks or we will be in trouble :shock:

Dunno about the rubber ducky - we actually do have one in the front "garden" :D so can always evacuate if needs be but those wellies sound like a good idea DB :thumbs_up: - need to get me some ......

Even if the rain eventually stops its going to be very cold and damp here for a few days - but the house will be warm and the company fantastic :dance:

Thanks Caracal but will admit to using the old muk-en-druk - was hard to juggle the umbrella and the camera without slipping on the wet and soggy mush underfoot and landing on my guava so opted for the easy option instead :redface: I did eventually take my shoes off and it was easier barefoot :tongue: - and don't worry - we are NOT going to braai :whistle:

WOW :big_eyes: , but BEAUTIFUL!!!
Gill and Arks.... the only way to say this is to be outright honest!!!
Springboks are playing England on Saturday at 4pm, so I am sorry :redface: , I will be missing this meet.
I am sure, very sure in fact :D that you will all be warm, dry, have wonderful eats (as usual :thumbs_up: ) and a very happy meet. ENJOY it everyone and Arks, hope the rest of your stay in CT is an enjoyable one :thumbs_up:

Thanks Dreamer :thumbs_up: - yes, it is absolutely gorgeous .... and the noise is awesome too ....

We will miss you guys on Saturday but I do understand ... the SO is also not terribly happy about the rugby but he is already scheming to have the TV on quietly in the computer room :twisted: :twisted: so he can at least keep track of whats happening .....

Thanks for clarifying, Scouter. So the 'brick' and what we call 'Darling cooldrink' it is. :dance:

@ Muchkin: :redface: (not sure I'm ready to be a legend :wink: )

Looking forward to seeing all! :dance:
