School’s just broken up

Christmas Summer Holidays

Time to hibernate



The schools here in South Africa have just broken up for their long summer vacation. Holiday makers will descend upon Cape Town in their droves. Even popping to the local shops for bread and milk will become a mission. I stay home as much as possible and only venture out when absolutely necessary. Trips to the beach, forests or mountains, will all have to wait till everyone has gone away again.

Time to hibernate – till mid-January!

    Thanks for the mention! I do remember those long lazy summer months in the tropics after school lets out.And yes those who are fortunate do pile into a vehicle and flood the beaches. Fond memories!

    Know exactly where you’re coming from Sci. We got our town back in October, though there are still visitors here. With the cold winds though, we’d love to hibernate for a couple of months!

      Yes, I’m sure you understand feeling over-run by seaside visitors too. 🙂
      Cold winds – definitely time for “chestnuts roasting on an open fire!” 😀
