Villiersdorp to Swellendam around Protem to Somerset
« on: May 24, 2014, 07:19:06 pm »
A few weeks back Spannerman and myself and  betterhalf had a good ride crossing over some old favourites and some new. As we are quickly changing season the first part was in a fresh 12deg gettind to Villiersdorp(stopped in town on payday for flue medicine-looney bin) but once we turned towards Robertson and into the karoo at 20 ish again we were full of smiles again- stopping before Robertson for coffee/breakfast and then on to Mcgregor that is looking a bit sad(shops closed-empty) and then Bonnievale for smokebreak(betterhalf now showing signs of eing in CT for 10 years)

After a shop vist or two we were off towards Swellendam little tar then nice  gravel- on the way we had our lunch stop(three course at least) and while enjoing the beauty had about 30 odd GS's and KTM come pass- we thought there must be a race or something until one of the guys stopped and invited us round to the river rally around the corner from where we were picnicking. As we we were running latish we skipped and ran into Swellendam for fuel and promtly left again for the return journey over Protem. Must revisid Swellendam again- a real beauty

With Spanners GPS route planning we turned off the N 2 onto some farm road and the next thing were in the middle of mile and miles of green farm land rolling from as far as you can see to each side. Real stunning roads and area- third pic showing a huge pig all by itself in a pasture with its own dam- since we stopped stopped smoking a few and eating has become next big pasttime we had to make another stop as i neede a top up for the last strech to Caledon and then tar to Somerset. About 500 odd kays of nice.  Last pic coming down SirLowrys with a stunning skyline :thumleft:
