Were the boys too old for an Easter Egg Hunt?! Never! The ancient Bunny got up to hide the eggs and then set about making breakfast. I roused the boys (it was after 8) and they were soon having fun finding their treats – just a token – there are more to be had when they get home. There was great hilarity and teasing when Jay was the last to find his bunny!
I was lucky that the Bunny did not forget me either!
After another wonderful ‘Early’ breakfast we packed a picnic lunch and set off for a Brandfontein. The weather was slightly overcast but still windless. We handed out binoculars to the lads and tried to engage them in a bit of bird watching. Unfortunately the birds were away for the long weekend and those who remained were not that photogenic. The proteas were beautiful and we saw flamingos on the salt pans.
There were a few fishermen at the beach and it is an area known for perlemoen poaching. The latter is done quite blatantly and few arrests are ever made. I did not feel happy leaving the car full of binoculars, phones and iPads so I volunteered to stay behind while Grandpa and the boys went adventuring. Anyway that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it. I had a wonderful couple of hours alone with my book:-) I did wander down the beach to get a bit of fresh air and was a tad worried when they were away so long but just as I was about to call a search party they reappeared full of the fun they’d had on the dunes and very hungry. The left over fish, rolls, chips and Easter eggs were gone in minutes!
