Thanks again roaneric for starting this thread and for all the lovely photos. (And thanks also to the other contributors.) Some of the photos bring back very fond memories. As I browse through the pictures, I say to myself, yep, I stood here, braaied there, slept here....

No its not all attached. It is a long row, but with 2 bungalows next to each other and parking spaces in between.
