Memorial Day Weekend

May 29th, 2007 by Josef van Wyk

We went to the New River Gorge over the weekend. Beautiful area that reminds me a lot of the low veld Waterval Boven area with lots of great white water kayaking and rock climbing opportunities to be had. Will have to go down again when the kids are older or when we have a baby sitter for the weekend.

Here is a pic or two of the valley and the bridge:

Halloween in Chicago

October 31st, 2006 by Josef van Wyk

Well, I had to go to Chicago for work and decided to bring the family with (got a very good deal on flights from Southwest). Must say, those boys of ours are busy; wow!! Hats off to Liesel for having to deal with all that energy day in and day out!!

Chicago is an interesting city but also really expensive, even more so than DC. Lake Michigan is enormous, never realised just how big it truly is – it almost feels as though you are standing on a beach in the mediterranean, just not as beautiful.

We are planning on having a night on the town tonight to see what interesting halloween antics people are up to.

Here is a couple pics of Joshua and William braving the cold weather in Chicago.
