We were in Vermaaklikheid, staying at Base Huis, for my brother's pit-firing pottery weekend.

Most of our time was spent busy with pottery activities and swimming in the gorgeous Duivenhoks river.

However, we did manage a short stroll around, setting off away from the river and heading along the road towards the hills.

We passed the adorable abandoned cottage on the rise.

The road went on, through the reeds and rushes, past Paddahoek cottage.

A little further on we turned off the road and climbed the path up to Dom's house, on the hill.

After a bite of lunch with Dom we walked on. The vegetation was very dry and scratchy alongside the road here on the hill.

We walked past Ian and John's old place.

We circled past the other cottages at the top of the valley...

... and headed back along the road.

Back at the river, we had another swim!
