Thanks for the interest
I'll see if I can get an assortment of pics together. The country is huge and quite diverse. I have pics from all over although not so many of Momoko out and about as I have only just 'found' her.
bo_anders- No, def no sharks in the Dam (no crocodiles either). The water in the Dam is 'freshwater' a term we use to describe rain collected. Our Dam is 450klms (not sure what that is in miles) or, a 4 - 5 hour drive from the sea where the sharks live. The Dam is artifically stocked with fingerlings (baby fish) to provide the fishing fanatics with something to catch. We also have 'Red Claw' which are a freshwater hard shelled Crayfish/Lobster. YUM.
Years ago we were swimming and some eels brushed up against our legs, scared the *%**#@ out of us. Hehe. Totally harmless though!
One of the most popular water sports is water sking... Do you know what I mean?
A white Christmas is on my to do list. Will have to go O/S for that though. The closest we have is some of the ski resorts down south (2 or 3 day drive away, 15,000klms) hold White 'Christmas in July' celebrations.
Where I live; the day time temps in winter are a pleasent 18 Degrees Celsius and the lowest (at night) is usually 8 dc. T-Shirts all year round here.
