I knew that Connor was going to want to read his book so I took mine along and we must have looked terribly ani-social as we read across the table from each other.
We decided to try and find somewhere where we could just chill and read our books so we stopped off at a tea garden on the way back to the cottage but the set up was not great ... the service was horrible and the manager kept walking along with HUGE big ugs on and dragging her feet (which those of you who know me well understand that that sound really puts me on edge). So I drank up my latte as quickly as I could and we were back in the car after only having read a few pages.
I saw a sign for Cathedral Peak 32km's so decided we would go and have a look ... the road was scary and we had to dodge lots of cows, goats and locals and when we got to the entrance we had to pay R30 each to get in. We drove the 4km's to the hotel and they wanted to charge us another R50 so we turned around and went to the Didima Centre for lunch ... it took more than 15 minutes for me to get a simple milkshake and nearly half an hour for them to serve us burned hamburgers with cheese and bacon after ordering a plain beef burger. I couldn't even finish the meal it was horrible.
We left there disappointed. The only redeeming feature is the incredible views of the Drakensberg Mountains ... I am in awe of the Voortrekkers ~ They must have had the most amazing resolve each and every day that they traveled their way through these mountains.
When we got back we went back to the main house and spent some time with Esme as we waited for the guys to come back. As we got to the gate this cow was standing across the entrance and would not move ... Connor got out of the car and only after picking up a stick and shooing quite loudly did it decide to move our of the way ... So funny!!! And of course I had to take a photo!!!
The welcome sight of my hunny arriving back.
