On our last day in Oranjemund we went to town and bought some meat for a braai at "Op My Stoep" where a few of us old Oranjemunders were staying.

Debby, Barbara and I went to say our good byes to Mike and Michelle and then headed back to Op My Stoep.

We ex Oranjemunders had a very pleasant evening with Fannie our host and a lot of laughs as well. Ask Bev and the girls who ran the fastest?

We all had breakfast the next morning and then hit the road to Cape Town.

Some photographs of our last night braai and road shots.   
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!
