a man at the reception ... what do I say :hmz: a beautiful brown blue eyed, changed the wheel of the car, while sipping his coffee turned cold and, everything, for "our beautiful eyes" (for free) :dance:
Thank you, thank you for your kindly :gflower:
it must be proper to South Africa... beautiful South Africa :thumbs_up:


Two Red Hartebeests run away at our view :doh:
we stop, at the next garage, not easy to find, it is a big window, but as soon as we stop... 10 people arrive, ready for repair :thumbs_up:
We enjoy going (again :lol: ) take some pictures of flowers and a Malachite Sumbird and Cape Weaver, in full job

The road is long until Cape Town ... and I must say that Caracal is a conductive outstanding.
We arrived around 18:30 safety home :D
One home more... for me :gflower:



Thank you Caracal, a big THANK YOU :k

En route to ADDO 14.10.2012

Up at dawn, starting at "no time", again with a friend and forumite, we have a long, long way :whistle:
Again, I am puzzled by the scenery and the sun plays with shapes and colors, and around the corner of the way, Cranes, the national emblem of South Africa. They dance, it's true it's spring here, I must not forget... when returning, I will "enter" in the winter :lol: :doh:
After a few stops "mandatory" and others not, we get our first step:

Kysna (14.10.2012)

what a pretty little park along the river, pretty little "forest cabin" (don't remember the number :redface: ), we braaing and I even do the fire :lol:

While one of us observe and photograph a pair of mating turtles :shock:
I discovered a whole family of Egyptian Gooses over water.
Opposite, on the other side, Caracal, sees a Knysna Turaco :dance:
I have just enough time to see it in flight, beautiful colours, but pictures will be for another time.
