Oceana Manager Mr. Johan
Kamfer showed me around

and kindly treated both of
us to some tasty whole
lobster which we devoured
by 10:00 in the Boardroom
while I took NOTES

I told Elizabeth and Johan that
the main reason I visited was to
check on the true height of
the "landing dock" up which
we had been hoisted from our
fishing boat some 40 years ago
(evening of Feb. 29, 1964)
Thanks, Elizabeth and Elzette
for the fine COMBO dinner
and filling KAROO breakfast!
And while Elizabeth arranged
my visit with Johan and asked
him to serve me a cup of tea
Johan did better and topped
me off with crayfish
(desert after breakfast?!)
and a very instructive tour !
