Splattermail Shakedown

Finally, finally - I have been able to upload some pictures taken from the Salami's recent trip to Plettenberg Bay. Holy smokes - we had a fucking blast! I was, of course, accompanied by a good number of Splattermail subscribers (smg is still lost in the Transkei - hopeless, I tell you).

Immediately upon our arrival in the scenic coastal town at about lunchtime on Thursday, 30 December, the thirsty party descended upon The Deck in Plett. We only departed after polishing off the last Pint o'Lager, Pint o'Seafood Platter and Pint o'Tossed Salad...get the picture?...well after 21h00 that night. There were some tidy, tidy little botties at The Deck that day. Grrr...

We then proceeded to wreak havoc at local hotspot, Vegas In Plett (aka VIP), before losing our exhaust pipe (thanks to 6 fat passengers) as we arrived home to our charming villa perched high upon the ridge overlooking Robberg. At some stage during the evening, Aussie PI, Paolo Koala, passed out in his car whilst (we suspect) squeezing a healthy dollop or two of dingo cheese. We laughed heartily. I doubt he will when he sees this.

The days idled by in a Golden, and utterly hysterical, haze (the kind you definately do not get in Jozi), interrupted only by en masse excursions to Larry's Bar for a New Years Eve blowout, and Flashbacks/Cranzgots for a far more sedate New Years Day dinner and drinks. The boys hit a good run of form, it must be said. The crusty yellow "player's vest", a floating trophy of sorts, was a hotly contested item, with nearly everyone either wearing it, or managing to avoid wearing it (through lies, deceipt and manipulation), at some stage or another.

We finally packed it in late on Sunday morning, after a sortie, lead by the intrepid Mr Koala, returned from a bungee at the Bloukrans, and returned home to Cape Town...just in time to take in two sun-soaked, glorious days of the best cricket South Africa has produced in a long while. Smashing.

Sadly, the holidays are over, and the harsh reality that is work is already taking its toll on this salted meat product. I'm tired, and I want to go home. BUT...before I wrap up, here's the album (for best results, click 'slideshow' to view).

PS. We're still waiting for a 100$ flatout golden tit link from Cape Town, with more photos. Watch this space.
