Visiting Velddrif - Part 1


Christmas time is summertime in South Africa. We almost always head to the West Coast to my in-laws. Velddrif is a fishing town along an estuary that we love to visit. Our three girls were with us on this outing. We saw the bokkoms hanging out to dry. In one of the photos is a small packet of bokkoms (dried mullet) that we shared. They are very salty. We saw flamingos flying by, but my pic of them isn't very clear.

Saint Helena Bay


Every Christmas we spend the holiday with my in-laws on South Africa's West Coast. On one of our days there, we usually buy fish and chips. The best fish and chips on the West Coast are at the BP Marine Fish Products takeaway restaurant down at the harbor in St. Helena Bay. I included a photo of our meal at the bottom. The chips look like calamari, but they are actually soft thick-cut French fries. It's a thing in South Africa. The first time I ate slap chips (soft French fries), I thought they were cooked wrong. I still prefer mine crispy.

Lighthouse at Shelley Point


Our family spent the Christmas holidays on South Africa's West Coast. We visited the lighthouse at Shelley Point on one of those days. These photos are of my husband and me and our two eldest children.
