DAY 5 21 July 2017 Excavations begin


Here we go!

Today the gardener, Wiseman started digging the pit for the suikinkitsu. After various trials with old woks and aluminium discs we discovered that the best sound is produced by a tiny trickle of water dripping into a plastic bowl! Unexpected and beautiful.  


A veggie braai- a South African rarity! Meat is big here.

This evening we had a vegetarian braai (BBQ) under a starry Southern sky with the roar of the Pacific in the distance over the dunes. It's very cold at night- lots of layers are  required.
