Succulents and Celebrations

After all of the sad and unhappy things that happened last week, the week ended on a much more positive note. Last Saturday Norm and I decided to go to Dario's, our fave burger place in Hout Bay for lunch. The sun had finally made an appearance but it was still rather chilly. The patio …
