A Meeting of 2 Families (Part 1 Intro)
The close proximity in the bush has a way of making or breaking relationships. After we had been together for a couple of months, Britt and I had decided that we wanted our relationship to be more than just temporary. We had many friends who had built relationships and then when everything was settling in nicely had tried to introduce the parents to each other and things went pear shaped. We figured, get the parents involved with each other from as early on as possible in our relationship, so we planned a holiday. We invited my folks and Britt’s folks up to Savannah Camp in a time when there were no prior bookings and placed them in the bush where the only people around were the 6 of us. It was a do or die for relationships.Britt’s family, although city folk from Benoni in Johannesburg’s East Rand, were bush lovers at heart and I’m sure would rather have been living out of town were circumstances different. My parents are also bush people and so we all got on like a house on fire and one couldn’t have asked for a better foundation for relationships. We witnessed some incredible and some unusual sightings over that week together that we will always have in common.
