Hi there

Just thought I would tell you about part of my SA holiday!

Yesterday we left home at 4am, and caught the train from Creighton, which ambled along for 1 and 3/4 hours. We saw thousands of flowering aloes, which only flower for 2 weeks each year - Red Hot Pokers!

We went alongside a river, and the scenery was really wonderful. Mountains in the background, and hills, valleys, and lots of cattle!

When we got back to Creighton, my son paid for us to go up for a helicopter ride. What an amazing experience!

I am being given such a wonderful holiday by my sons and daughter-in-law! Time is passing too quickly!

If I wasn't on my UK benefits, I would be back here for good!
