Die 4x4 gaan gly gly op... ek begin keen raak, maar Michelle is bekommerd oor die afkom, which is true...  maar daar was n baie vriendelik tannie in n Disco 4 wat aangehou het ons is 1.7km van die grens pos en ons moet opgaan. Sy se Michelle moet saam haar opgaan en dan ry die fiets op...agter my se n a ander vriendelike oom, hy sal buffer van agter en terug hou laat ek die momentum hou vorentoe, en as ek val help optel...

Right hier gaan ons op... dit is so mistig, daar is baie klippe.. maar is mooi vas in die grond, dus baie traksie...en soos die gesoute ouens weet... just keep momentum..

en siedaar!  :bounce:

Sani66.JPG

Weet nie wie was die blyste om bo te wees nie, Michelle, myself en almal wat verby ry wat cheer terwyl ons die victory fotos neem...

So mistig en koel bo...

Sani68.JPG

Bo by die resturant is dit mal besig... oppad kroeg toe trek mense ons in by hul tafel om saam hulle te eet, het die 2 dames op Icy Corner ontmoet..daar kommentaar gelewer en gekuier... nou het ons sitplek, geselskap en geniet n lekker cheese burger...  ;)

En dan die volgende, obvious foto

Sani69.JPG

Gekke en dwase skryf hul name op mure en glase, of is dit op die plafon van die kroeg?! 
:rofl:
Sani70.JPG

Na n lekker middag ete, het ons seker so 20 km noord gery, maar die sneeu het gesmelt en besluit om om te draai...

Oppad af met Sani pas

Oppad af is Michelle en  my mojo so aan soos kan kom... op die pegs en ons gaan rustig af...

Oppas terug packpackers toe...

Die aand was aandete lekker beefstew... en weer lekker saam almal om die kagel gekuier. Die aand het ons darem ons eie kamer gehad met n dubbel bed... en n verwarmer!!!

Altwee op die fiets... "die was nie erg nie"...gesels ons met mekaar... en toe om die kop is dit die gesig!  :silly:

Sani (147).JPG

Stap weer die bult uit... kies lyne... stap af... besluit dalk moet ek die panniers op dra.. tenk is vol petrol, en dan ook die panniers, kom ons maak die fiets ligter... sluit die ene af... en dra die op, toe ek terug by die fiets kom... het Michelle perongeluk die proppie in die slot afgetrap... eish!!! :pinch:  Daar stap ek weer terug op die ander ene weer te gaan haal... het ek al genoem die bultjie is moer steil...? Nou al baadjie uitgetrek...

Drie keer se op en af stap, nou het al min of meer die perfekte lyn in my kop ingebrand!!!

Sani (151).JPG
Sani (153).JPG
Sani (155).JPG
Sani (156).JPG

YES!!!! Bo!!!

Terwyl Michelle die foto neem,

Sani (157).JPG

Stap ek om die kop... en daar le daai gerugte step ups!!! Skat hulle so 400-500 mm hoog en drie na mekaar!? Stap terug na Michellie toe.. en deel met haar die nuus... haar arme gesiggie toe ek haar se sal moet omdraai! Haar so jammer gekry...nou is ons altwee al goed oor dit!!!! Moet se die af was baie makliker. Het die hele stuk het sy saam afgery... nou moet ons terug Bergville toe, dan verby Little Switzerland, Harrismith en dan Pretoors... besluit ons ry eerder Clarems toe, en slaap daar.. Was al oor middag ete bespreek, maar nou n werlikheid!! dit was al 17:00 toe ons Oliviershoekpas klaar ry... by die T-aansluiting draai ons links  Clarens toe via Golden Gate... dog gaan die Golden Hour beleef, maar toe dreig sulke lae donker wolke...

Garmin die Backpackers in Clarens en toe ons intrek ontmoet Rick ons... baie vriendelik! Gaan wys ons ons slaap plekkie: " We'll take it!!"

Saal gou af en gaan bad gou... n mens voel mos beter! Dis nou al donker en ons sien nie die onweers wolke nie... nou moet ons gaan kos soek in Clarens 19:30 in die aand...

Die Vito resturant is nog oop... al hoekom ons dit weet, daar staan 4 karre voor die plek... gaan in en die vriendelike tannie se sy kan ons net pizza maak, omdat die oond nog warm is...2x pizza ASB!!! Sommer Take Away asb!

Stop by daai Engen in die onder dorp waar die kafee/slaghuis/petrolstasie... vang hulle ook net oop... koop lekker hout en melk, vir lekker koffie!!

Was net tuis toe reen dit katte en honde!!!
Ons kooi vir die aand...
Sani (158).JPG
Krismis bed voor die kagel, dis net opdat ek nie krag gehad het om die bed te skuif nie...
 :blush:

Michelle stel voor n  vol body massage vir die volgende oggend... hmmmm nie n slegte idee nie... google dit my liefie!!!

Volgende oggend waai daar n ysige wind...

Sani (169).JPG
Sani (171).JPG

Clocking in for our massage:

Sani (173).JPG
Dit was die beste ding ooit! 1 en halwe uur! So dit werd gewees! Gevoel soos n Million bucks na dit! En Michelle het dit so geniet!!

Gou n lekker Cappachino gaan drink... om weer wakker te word

Sani (174)

En uit Clarens moet n mens mos stop by die As rivier uitloop
