In December 2008, Dean, Zania, Terrance, Chantelle and myself found ourselves heading out to Witsand for a well deserved weekend holiday break, bunking down in a quaint little wooden cabin that Dean had managed to source for the weekend.
While a terribly relaxed and enjoyable weekend (we fished, went to the beach, played cricket, braaied, played UNO – you know, that sort of thing), it did come at a terrible price – on one of our very first outings to the beach we all got so sunburned that cooked lobsters looked less red than us!
All in utter agony, with skin peeling everywhere and Terrance looking like a fire burn victim, we persevered on with the weekend, but man what a painful drive back and recovery period!
However, as you can see from the picture above, despite the burn there was still plenty of fun and games to be had, in particular an epic bout on the putt-putt course – which unfortunately my failed memory refuses to remind me who actually won!
And now that I think of it, next time I’ll organise the accommodation. There wasn’t enough bed space – meaning yours truly had to sleep on the hard wooden floor. Sigh, what a man won’t do to impress his woman! ;)
