|My Dad, Mum and I living the life in the Boondooks!|
|The Little House on the Inside!|
|The Little House on the Outside!|
Despite being in the boondocks, my mum says living at Silversands was like living in heaven! How could it not be... it had the most beautiful beach, away from the city with no crowds. Sea, sand and sun all day long, that was how I grew up! I learned to read and write in the sand! The food was delicious, seafood caught fresh everyday; sardines, lobster and kingfish to your heart's delight (she said turtles too, but I'll just pretend I didn't hear that!).
The people from Silversands left a lifetime mark on my parents and they are the ones whose names I have heard for the last 50 years; Dr. Stocker, Misha, Abbey, Blima, Abrasha, Medina, Isaac, Yona, Simba, Shabani, Salum, Charles, Fabian, Pedro, Bhaturio, Roshi, Punch, Mali, Sadru, Kimi, George, Brian, Alice and Mocha the French Poodle!
It really didn't dawn on me till today, how very fortunate I was to grow up on a remote beach in Africa!
Thank you for sharing Day 3 of 50 with me!
