While this furry round ball is on my lap and keeps me on the couch I have nothing better to do than write again.
It’s been now almost 4 weeks that I’ve been living with these two furry animals.
Since Beth is on holiday I adopted these two kids. It is not as easy as you think. Waking up in the morning, stepping out of your room and almost falling over this.
I mean really Zak. WHAT is it? Just ignored it. And then the cat. Pita. Which stands for pain in the a**. And which describes her perfectly. Constantly trying to jump on my lap while I am busy replying to emails. Doing the accounts. Dealing with needy tourists. Just left her. Told her she should finish the paperwork.
But beside that we actually get along. Most of the time. Sometimes. Let’s say once. It was a cold afternoon. And we were all in bed. All three of us. In one bed. No fights. That was kind of a miracle. Didn’t happen again.
It was monday. Super misty. Couldn’t see my hand in front of my face. But Zak got really annoying. Needed some exercise. So I went and rented a fatbike.
But now you gonna run!
Into the dunes. Up and down. Always behind me. Catching a breath whenever I stop to take pictures.
Which I do luckily quite often.
It was a nice afternoon. Perfect conditions for the the tour. Not too hot. No people in the area. Just Zak and me.
And then we decided on Sunday again to go into the riverbed. Zak was not allowed to sit in the front. He had to sit in the back of the bakkie. But he really wanted to sit next to Auntie Lynette. Don’t you understand?
And then it’s playtime.
The dogs running around. No fences. No neighbours. No cars driving by.
Time for me to take again shots of the green nature. This time a bit further developed than last week.
Just love it. Nature is so stunning.
And this is just heaven. Braaing in the river with friends.
Love this area.
But then a combi drives past. The dogs go wild. The combi stops. Zak recognises Jay and Sisca. Runs to them. Jumps in the car. Hijacks the car. Tells them to turn around and come to us.
That’s how random you meet your friends in the middle of nowhere. And the braai gets bigger.
Zak and I go again for a long walk.
Tried to take some shots of the night sky, but someone had to interrupt my long exposure shots.
Anyway weren’t the perfect conditions for taking pictures of the stars since the moon was so bright. It’s almost full moon.
And then time to go back into town.
The following monday Dawie wanted to go with the fat bikes.
But he didn’t wanna go into the dunes. So we stayed in the riverbed. Still challenging in the sand.
But so beautiful.
I love it to see how the plants come out of the desert.
Just looks amazing.
Zak enjoys it as well, even though he looks quite exhausted.
We drive down the river up to Tiger Reef and then back along the beach.
