It's a long long road!
OPS 1961-1968. Huguenot High 1969-1973.
Military Service Jan 1974-June 1975.
Worked in Oranjemund July 1975-March 1979.

Life's journey is not to
arrive at the grave safely
in a well preserved body,
but rather to skid in sideways,
totally worn out, shouting
'..holy sh*t ..what a ride!

My mouse has recovered!

My idea of the Oranjemund town shots was to try create an eyes view of things we have looked at many times in our lives during our time in Oranjemund in the 60s, 70s, 80s extra, but took for granted and might have forgotten over the years - in short a memory boost for the old folk that have forgotten.

Enjoy the ride.
