LOVE TO WANDER
We are moving on today and have a long(ish) 4 and a half hour drive ahead to Hlangana Lodge in Oudtshoorn, so are making an early start. Route 62 is a good alternative to the very popular Garden Route along the coast. It is supposed to be quieter, but no less picturesque - we'll find out today.
I will remember Franschhoek as a very pretty little place - full of roses even this early in Spring/Summer - definitely somewhere to return to.
Thought for the day - must find room in our house somewhere for a large bean bag - they are such fun!
Photo I wished I had taken - the deep blue light balls around the swimming pool here - a very clever idea. Too late now it is light again.
Glad I packed - the no peg clothes line, which worked a treat hanging over the bath. The guide book on Kindle has been great too - much lighter than a fat book and I have learned how to add bookmarks now - so useful.
Looking forward to seeing ostriches close up rather than just a picture in a guide book.
Wished I'd had time to - read The South African Story (Ron McGregor). It was a book in the hotel that looked really interesting.
