It’s not so bad finding yourself “homeless” when there are so many awesome places to stay cheaply, assuming, of course, that you have a tent or caravan!
As I mentioned in my previous post we have taken on the gypsy lifestyle while our house is let out for the holidays.
Today we left Warmwaterberg where we spent two lovely days and as we travelled toward Swellendam we enjoyed the scenery before the rain bucketed down.
We stopped to have breakfast at the infamous Diesel and Creme in Barrydale.
We really should have ordered one wrap to share because neither of us could eat both halves!
Thus fortified with food we continued on our scenic drive to Bontebok National Park.
The homes are simple but everyone makes them look really pretty.
It was still raining when we entered Bontebok National Park. I asked the reception staff to please turn it off but they just laughed at me. Anyway, my spirits were up when we saw our first Bontebok of the trip.
We settled into our not-too-muddy campsite and huddled in the Gecko till the rain let up a little and then went for a drive.
The park is very pretty but in the wet weather, there was not too much to see.
At supper time we did not need to cook outdoors as we had leftover Benedict wraps and leftover ribs from Warmwaterberg both of which were still quite delicious.
More to follow tomorrow. I promise the weather improves!
