Sunday 24 February 2013, I visited Churchhaven situated within the West Coast Nature Reserve.
Jack was baptized -Ooh- I am a great Aunt!
Remember the post of his parents wedding? The bride -now mother
This is an historic place with a slave history.
It is beautiful
The water is very safe.
We gathered as family and friends.
After the service there was tea, coffee, juices and a variety of drinks and the braai fires were hotting up.
There is a narrow beach and very few people.
We clamber up and down this slope from the church site to and from the beach:
The first picture- Churchhaven- is taken from between those two shrubs that designate the church property in this picture. There is a church, a hall, a rectory and a graveyard, an ancient bell. a wide stoep and some open ground used for parking.
It is a nature reserve and this buck took time to look me in the eye,
He moved away as we stopped to admire him and took a path into the shrub but stopped to stare at me for a moment before heading off again.
