an instant of life captured for eternity

Life around here has been extremely hot! We’ve been trying really hard to adjust to the intense heat, but wowzers! It’s proved to be a difficult task, but you can’t blame us we just came back from always rainy always slightly cold Dublin.  The flowers, the blue skies and the amazing African sunsets make up for the heat.

The heat has not been our only difficulty.  Trying to find a place to rent in Cape Town is near impossible,  most of these places require a payment of a really nice car to live in a shoe box of a place!  We finally managed to get a place, but now we are waiting for all the credit checks to clear, it also doesn’t help that we’ve been living in Ireland for the last 4 months.   I’m trying to keep my stress levels down to a minimum, but boy is it getting hard.  I have faith that things will work out and we will be all settled in no time.

^^ We met up with my sister and her family and had a picnic in the shade while staring at this big guy.  We were also right by the para-gliders coming down from Signal Hill.  It seems like fun!
