Vermaaklikheid: Hill Circuit Counterclockwise

Date: 20 December 2009

Location: Vermaaklikheid

Walkers: Helen, Ian & John, with Nunu

**** Route plotted here ****

Ian and John came to stay with me on my last night in Vermaaklikheid. The next morning we decided to have one last walk and swim. We set off on the same route I'd done a couple of days earlier, but this time the other way around. So we headed up the valley first.



We took the path up and over the hill and made our way down to the river.





We swam - one last glorious wallow in the cool water. And then Dom rowed over from The Rivershell, the house he'd taken upriver with his guests that had arrived the day before, to say hello and goodbye.



After that we strolled back along the road. Time to pack and head home :(

Hello, trying again. Vermaaklikheid looks lovely - am totally envious. Like your new profile pic, it looks great.

It works! No problem this time thank goodness. We must check diaries and make a booking for Vermaak early next year! Glad you like the profile pic - was quiet in the office yesterday so got Gerhard to take a few.

So good to see these pics. This is the first time I have not been at Vermmaaklikheid during December-january since 1995, and I'm really missing it from the other side of the world. Great blog.
