Muriel and Michael Bennett, Southampton, England, Feb 2007 

We'll "simply remember our favourite things": playing cricket on the beach, floating in with the tide, the boat ride, "surfing" saam met Dudley-hulle, the linen, the long walks on the beach early every morning, gazing at the soft sheets of rain from the deck, the smell of the forest, the colours of the street lights along the lagoon, the atmosphere as the sun sets and everyone goes home, the deck, the deck, the deck....this is no ordinary destination, this is an experience!
Piet, Marguerite, Jannu, Marc, Vredekloof, Cape Town, Jan 2007
