Laughter is brightest in the place where food is - Irish ProverbWe had earlier caught up with old friends from Kimberley cruising, Ray and Brenda from 'Sunchaser II', and Geoff from 'Pussyfoot'. So it was arranged for us all to meet at Echo Beach for the festive season. We were fully provisioned with all the fresh produce, lots of alcohol beverages courtesy of the duty-free port, and I had made the Xmas Pudding (yes I still make this from scratch) and the Xmas Pine Cone cheese spread (my recipe featured in Cruising Helmsman).
