Throwback Thursday

January 1967. On vacation in Mozambique. Me, my brother and my two sisters on our way to do some fishing.


Fishing is serious business.

Have a great day everyone!

I love that in the second picture you've all lined up according to age/height.

I hear you've been suffering floods over in South Africa. My thoughts are with you and your countrymen.

I love these pictures! I think about posting old pictures sometimes, but I lose motivation between the thought and the scanner. Maybe you'll inspire me.

Ever since I was a kid I loved the name Mozambique.
And the last time I fished was when I was a kid. I remember even catching something, small but still. Now I just can't sit still for too long.
Loved those pics.

Things are more simple when you are a kid - good stuff Johann! Those are darn good photographs for 1967!! I'm noticing the "barefoot" movement is not all that new...

old school! great photos :) i think you should try to get together and get another fishing pic, maybe with the kids now too. would be a fun "update".

Abby @ Have Dental Floss, Will Travel said...

That was nothing! You should have seen the storm we got yesterday - a foot and a half more snow... craziness :)

Very nice memory but ... not for the fishes.
Beautiful photo.

I can only imagine what it must be like to go to places like Mozambique for vacation!

Looks like a fun trip for you and your siblings. =D Are you the oldest brother or youngest?
I liked to fish as a kid too. We live on a good river for it and am looking forward to doing it again as my kids get to a safer age.

You live in Johannesburg? That is fantastic. I visited St.Lucia in 2008 and I absolutely loved it. I spent a weekend in Kosi Bay (are you familiar?) near Mozambique. I adore South Africa. I was actually just talking about making plans to go back.
