Driving some 300 miles along the mostly desolate “garden route” from Franschhoek to Plettenberg was thankfully uneventful meaning no car breakdowns along the way. Listening to the Beach Boys, Willie Nelson (and Dennis Prager) made the time pass quickly. The rolling hills were so green and velvety they reminded me of an old home-screen …

... flushing toilet fitted for Lizzie's comfort. No more frequent pits stops! I can just see the satisfied smile on her face!

The final trip back from Vic Falls was via Francistown where we overnighted at Woodlands cottages (self catering), Botswana (Stockpoort border), Joburg (time with Kate &Warren), Graaff Reneit and then home. The easy scenic N9 route from Colesberg to Graaff Reneit is recommended! Nice easy ...

... my leg on a stick without breaking it and walked off limping.

So I'm pretty sure Joey isn't scared of me and I'm also fairly certain what he's doing now counts as bullying.

Apart from that it's been a good couple of weeks. We visited the elephant sanctuary which was lovely and walked with elephants in hand and got 41 likes on my profile picture (yeah I can tell you're impressed). We also visited the beach which means I now wear several layers of makeup to try ...

... of the stew then finished it off with grated Parmesan and fresh parsley. It looked really nice and was quite tasty. I cheated for dessert and bought an apricot and almond tart at the French bakery this morning. It was yummy. The first wine was supplied by Chris (Pederberg Winery Pinotage 2011), and the second was donated by Joep (their first label syrah).

After a lovely evening of food, laughter and great company it was off to bed around 10:30. ...

... the boat for the day and did the tour guide patter – really relaxing for Nick and I who sat back looking at beautiful scenery. Did get stung on my bum though when we stopped on shore for a pee – mind you I was glad it was a wasp not a snake after hearing stories at the snake sanctuary.

Met an artist – Malachi Smith in Knysna – quite a character, also a writer and gave us a book of his about women in ...

    Carolyn Cooney is such a wonderful, warm, informative hostess. I am so impressed with her entrepreneurial spirit and savvy. Her home was our home, we felt so comfortable here. Her staff were extremely attentive and anticipated our every need. The breakfasts were fantastic and the real silver flatware and Spode China made the meal extra special. Just lovely.
