Much needed break

This past Saturday I wrote the longest test I've ever written, and there's more were that came from. We were in the test venue from 8am to 4.30 pm with a 45minute lunch break. So we decided that since my brother in law is here from Germany for a visit and I will need to wind down a bit after an intense week of revision, we needed to take a break. So on Sunday off to Coffee Bay we went for a 2 day break of relaxation.

As soon as we got there, the boys took out their fishing gear and did a bit of fishing

doing what they love

while I got comfortable with a non academic book (the simple pleasures).

while i chill
As soon as it got dark, we headed out for some drinks and mindless fun at a local bar. We had such a jam and played a bit of pool (which I totally suck at).

I must have been slurring my words

Fun times

Then at some stage, there was just silence in the room. In hind sight, I  must have looked like such an idiot cause I got really excited thinking "what's next". We were asked to read this sign....

and so.....

Needless to say, I was a very sick bunny the next day, but that didn't stop me from doing a bit of snorkeling and swimming

While the boys pretended to catch caught some crayfish....

We decided to spoil ourselves with lots of crayfish since they were almost 15times cheaper than when you get them at a hectically cheap, and had a braai with them that evening.

They were so amazing and we were so hungry, I didn't even waste time taking pics of them when they were done, but as you can see, the boys were seriously satisfied!

We had such a nice break and early Wednesday morning, I was back at the office and it was business as usual. I already miss the little coastal village of Coffee Bay though.
