Nearly there just need the Oxfords and the lady



Found the Capie Bros at last and joined at Ronnies for cold one and some wip cracking



Round the bend we all go



Mr Clockwork and Hardy plus Acton swallowing away the dust after some fast gravel  to Willowmore



The Lodge with the last served beer and pertol before we enter the Bav.



Kaboef and miss doing the first of alot of splashes



A place to lie down and dream of all the beauty around us

 

A Hardy place to have a quick nap after the captian dissapeard, till jame and... sons apears :D  :D



What a beauty with wings ! :!:



Looking west as we came into the Kloof



This tent everyone will recognize . Not to close now....Killded-in-side because it thunders :D

 

A small church to go and repent



Kaboef and the locals meet in the water



TA giving it some stick



Where shall we go to now  :?:



Kaboef and the red submarine




Ok time out
oor B..erge en RIV..iere sal ons ry,

OK so we were doing the submariner last. Here we turned of to check Geelhoutbos and found this watercrossing. As it is with our younger boertjies, Kaboef told Marlie to hold on bokkie were a going through 8) . I checked it out and chickened :oops: but got the proof that AT's can swim on flim :!:  









Up on the pass looking north-east



The gathering in the water



Zonkel did it with the TA but he also walked after riding it :!:  :D  :D

 

Then Kaboef took the sub through  :D  :D lekker man lekker :!:



Some of the rock formations are awsome



A good set of footware is ...... not optional. No blood was drawn by this thorn in Anda's boot



Back in camp and time for some lekker relaxing



The start of the antics...... playing vrot eier





Anda and I decided to go south the Sunday and sleep over on the coast at Vleesbaai. We met up with Rene in Uniondale had some brekkies. Discussing a route, Rene opted to join us through the Prince Alfreds Pass to Knysna. By chance we met up with Kaboef and Marlie on this stretch and we had a lovely trip, parting ways at the Big Tree.






Getting to Vleesbaai was a mission in it self as we hit some heavy winds from George to Mosselbaai.Vleesbaai had no BB so we turned back to Boggomsbaai and found a lovely little place on the beach overlooking the bay.





The  small wooden place on the left was ours.

Hey Ama hoe sal ek dan nou weet of ek rerig my hande gewas het  :?:  :D  :D  :D  Ek weet net, ek het lekkerrrrr gevree-hit :lol:  Ons gaan julle twee mi-his hier innie kaap ou broer  :(

Monday we hit the road to Gouritsmond, Stilbaai, Puntjie, Vermaaklikheid, Heidelberg, Swellendam, Robertson and home.



Stilbaai west for a coldrink





Down at the Puntjie lagoon looking south to the sea



And then looking north we spot this mermaid all on her lonesome swimming in the lagoon



This puffadder nearly gave the AT a puncture but I mannaged to aviod it and scoot it back into the undergrowth before it gets hurt.






Lunch in Robertson.




Spot the AT  :!:  :!:



Back at briviaan se valley all safe and sound. :D  :)  :D

Some very nice pics here. I really like the ones that are a bit out of the ordinary that lends to the story... like the thorn and the snake. Cool!

Great report and pics.  At this stage the question is "Productivity, what productivity?"  Don't wanna be in the office!  

The more reports and pics I see, the greater the determination not to miss next year or the one thereafter or thereafter!
