Trennery's / East London
« on: April 25, 2010, 07:50:07 pm »
Although this happened during November 2009, I only have now managed to do the upload of photo's etc - thanks to my brother and the Mrs.

So here is my first RR. 

The Mrs and I were invited to join a few guys from Cradock for a breakfast at the Trennery’s Hotel. At first we could not decide which route to take, but with the assistance of the Hotel Manager, we were on our way to a very exiting day.  The initial plan was to visit the Jacaranda’s shipwreck that stranded sometime ago.   It rained the previous 2 day's and as a result we came across a few mud pools and tricky situations.
In some cases the ladies decided to rather take a walk while us stronger generation :angry7: decided to bite the bullet and go for the best.  I never new that I would be so thankfull for doing the Country Trax training a few weeks before.....  Having said that, some of us decided to drive through a mud pool ......   Enjoy!

Locals have patience (wish I had the same) and they can wait for hours/days ...

Thought you may want to see what the Jacaranda wreck looked like about 14 years ago
