Dave Coward chose it for a members weekend away from home between 19th to 21st July.
11 Members had a very relaxed weekend and enjoyed glorious sunny weather. A beautiful moon, waxing to nearly full and the ever present ocean right in front of our camp site, set the scene.
On Saturday morning we left for a walk in a southerly direction along the beach towards Pennington. A few swimmers braved the sea for a stunning swim, others continued a little further along the beach while the hungry found the beach kiosk for refreshments. Eventually all of us gathered there for something to eat or drink.
Our dear hiking friend, George Archibald, who happened to be in the area, came to greet us all while we were eating. Hopefully George will join us on a hike in the near future.
A very successful braai was held on Saturday evening.
On Sunday morning we drove to Umdoni Park, in the Pennington Conservancy, for a short walk. About two and a half hours was spent walking thru this pristine Nature Reserve.
We were promised a lunch at the Umdoni Golf Club House. The fish and chips for R50 was suggested. We all opted for this dish and nobody was disappointed.
We left for home, well fed and contented.
Thanks Dave for a wonderful weekend.
