Bin thru the desert on a horse with no name..... There is nothing quite like the peace, quiet and solitude of the desert

Spent the last 2 days herding dinner and riding around the Kenhardt area.
Didn't make it to Verneukpan, it was just becoming too much mission to make sure gate was open / I could get a key...and I'm on holiday so there will be no stress

Seems Putsonderwater is being re-colonized. 2 houses out there with glass in the windows, curtains up and satellite dishes on the walls

Early-ish start from Kenhardt yesterday morning. Sometimes forget how lekker it is to just cruise down a quiet  stretch of asphalt in the morning been some rain on the way to Brandvlei

Then on to Loeriesfontein on a rough gravel  road. Lots of sand and washouts but stunning views
