Father , Daughter, Son Ride 10/11th Oct. 2015
« on: October 11, 2015, 06:35:28 pm »
What an awesome Experience !

My little daughter had such an ausome time and she rides as pillion so well.
Two taps on the leg , " Stand for the Sand" or the bumpy road , she has that part Waxed !

Although we only ended up with two children , Shaheed1200 and myself ,
we also had Natilie and her big Kid Warren( Husband)  and   
 Megan and her kid , Henk ( Husband )

 The weather was perfect , the rain stayed away , and after a hearty breakfast at the Wimpy , we were off on the way to Ceres, Padstal Die Mond
Having an 11 yr old on the back of your bike comes with more stops ( to make sure) they dont fall asleep) or get board.

But the ride went fine and we took our time.



In Ceres after refueling we hit the Spar for  Food , and Sweets(padkos for kids lol)..



En Route to the Padstal, we stopped to take in the beautiful purple flowers either side of the R355, Where Shaheed entertained us , while he test drove a Prehistoric , Stone-age GS and shared his experience with us



We stopped at Padstal for Lunch , Burgers , Coffee and Coocksisters.
After Amber had checked out the shop and found the black nigger balls , we were off.

The R355 wasnt too bad in cond.
Once we turned off the R355 en route Die Mond , Id hoped we would see some Antelope which I normally do , but alas non were to be seen.
"Die Mond" had quite a few families with children there , for the schools holidays,
And quite a few more Bass fisherman too.
We got a site right next to the river , lush green grass and a lekker braai spot, and nice and close to hot water showers and the loo.

We put our children to the task of getting the tents up and unpacking , then it was ,
Dad , lets go to see Bushman Paintings , which ended up in a long walk up the river banks . between the high cliffs.

Ending up with some jumping into the river and swimming back down the last km .

Tell us more Andy and please, more pics

Thanks so much for planning an awesome weekend Andy.

De Mond is a really fantastic place to go to, and it was even better having some time to walk around a bit, and even swim around a bit.

And if I had to act like a kid to tag along, well, it was worth it, even being forced to eat roasted marshmallows.

You just gotta love those wide open plains, to me, they are more beautiful than any mountains, and I cannot explain why.

Looks fantastic. Sorry I couldn't make it. I didn't/couldn't get on a bike all weekend.

Will you do another one this summer? I don't want to miss it again.
