Dankie Keith - nice area waarin julle gery het.

Eendag dan moet my stoffies daar by Swaershoekpas gegooi word sodat ek maar 'n ogie kan hou oor die Cradockers  ;)  Toe ons nog in Cradock gebly het, kon ek Swaershoek elke dag sien.  Nou sien ek net die buurvrou as sy werk toe gaan  >:(

Ek sal JMOL kry om my eendag as ek groot is daai paaie te gaan wys!

Maandag oggend val ons weer vroeg in die pad. Weereens grondpad verby Grassridge Dam en dan Schoombee se kant toe. Daar was baie wild te sien

Klomp koedoes wat langs die pad gehardloop het

Die koei het net hier vasgestrap en bo-oor die draad heining geseil - nogal iets om te aanskou

We passed a stationary bakkie standing next to the road. The driver was a farmer who was quietly sitting having what seemed to be a leasurely smoke  ??? We greeted in passing when Huisdier showed me to stop.  Now we know why the "guard in the bakkie" was parked next to the road  :ricky:

Not an everyday sight

It wasn't long before the bakkie made its appearance from behind and just observed us from a distance  :peepwall:

Grassridge Dam. For those that don't know the area it forms part of the irrigation network that gets water from the Gariep Dam. Water to this dam comes from the tunnel outlet at Teebus. From here the water is supplied to the Fish River and then further down to the Sundays River Valley where citrus is produced.

Casting From Turd - I took this photo especially for you. Sure you will remember this place  ??? White water rafting in the Karoo ?

Na so 100 kilo's grondpad moes ons 150 meter teerpad ry. Hier vat ons die pad Oorlogspoort toe

Soos wat ons gery het, was ek seker dat ek nou en dan miskruiers gesien het. Die goedjies fasineer my - seker oor ek so lief is vir die natuur. Ek het eers verby die beesmis in die pad gery en toe ek wou omdraai, vra Huisdier my of daar fout was. My antwoord was dat ek wou terug gaan beesmis toe  ??? Toe kom die "vir wat wil jy kak afneem"  :eek7:

Ek was jare laas op Rosmead. Die plek is nou kwaai verwaarloos. Kyk hoe lyk van die ou army geboue wat daar nog staan. Dit was in die dae toe daar nog 'n brandstof depot daar was

Ons het op Middelburg stigehou en 'n lekker brunch by die Keg geniet. Na dit val ons in die pad Richmond se kant toe maar wou eers Nieu Bethesda 'n draai gemaak het.

Die roete is die moeite werd: baie wild, pragtige berge en baie mooi paaie om te verken

Swart Wildebeeste langs die pad
