The spread for my birthday
Rina baked a chocolate cake and milk tart
After Rina had iced the huge cake with chocolate frosting, I added Route 62 to the decoration. Route 62 meanders between Cape Town, Oudtshoorn, the Garden Route and Port Elizabeth and offers the scenic alternative to the National N2 Bikers love this route as it has beautiful twists and turns on many mountain passes. The traffic official don't patrol this route which is a great plus! Grant and I always travel along Route 62 on the bike, hence the wording on my cake!

Me and my beautiful Marquard friends!
Monday was Grant's birthday. He turned 64 and I played Paul McCartney's "When I'm 64" when I served him coffee in bed.
A businessman in town, Phillip Strydom shares Grant's birthday. No matter where in Africa Grant finds himself, he phoned Phillip to wish him. This year we're in town, so I invited Phillip and his wife, Hester over for tea at 3pm. We also fetched Grant's 85yo mother and our dear friend, Pienkie from the retirement center.

Grant and Phillip cut the cake together
Phillip and Hester were instrumental in starting the beautiful, upmarket retirement center where Grant's mum, Pam now resides. Pam is still in her rented flat but at the beginning of March we'll move her into the unit we've had built for her. She and Pienkie will be neighbors.
