We really are blessed to be living in such a beautiful part of the country, even though the highway is now incredibly close to our home post the new road works and depending on which way the wind is blowing can make for noisy evenings with the traffic buzzing by.
Onto happier things… just in case you missed my post on the Addo Elephant National Park, it is a mere 2km drive from our home now that they have opened the south gate, a true privilege! It used to take close to and hour and a half to get into the park before they opened the new gate and just for interests sake, Addo is now the third largest national park in South Africa. 🙂
Pete and I went on a bike ride adventure which led us right to the border of the park. Sadly we didn’t see any wildlife, although there was evidence of Elephant as we spotted loads of dung.
There used to be a railway station bordering the park in Colchester eons ago evident by how overgrown the tracks are which will make for a beautiful photo shoot – soon I hope. Somebody must have known the station will never re-open as when they tarred the road, they tarred straight over the tracks – or were they possibly just lazy.
