Gulls & Grub at the Gypsy

We set off last week to explore the Mossel Bay Harbour and hopefully get some lovely nautical images.  We did manage to get into the harbour and discover a fantastic frozen fish shop but sadly we were not allowed to take any photographs.  As a wonderful compensation we ate a delicious lunch of calamari, hake and chips at the Sea Gypsy Cafe located on the harbour wall.

Ah! Ice cold beer

Po-ta-toes said Sam. The Gaffer’s delight, and rare good ballast for an empty belly. But you won’t find any, so you needn’t look. But be good Sméagol and fetch me some herbs, and I’ll think better of you. What’s more, if you turn over a new leaf, and keep it turned, I’ll cook you some taters one of these days. I will; fried fish and chips served by S. Gamgee. You couldn’t say no to that.
Yes, yes we could. Spoiling nice fish, scorching it. Give me fish now, and keep nassty chips!
Oh, you’re hopeless, said Sam. Go to sleep!”

“Your whole body, from wingtip to wingtip,” Jonathan would say, other times, “is nothing more than your thought itself, in a form you can see. Break the chains of your thought, and you break the chains of your body, too.”

He was not bone and feather but a perfect idea of freedom and flight, limited by nothing at all

Well that’s it for this week folks, I have tarried way too long in this space – must fly!
