|The old station, perfectly restored. and turned into self-catering accommodation now. There are classic and vintage cars displayed all around the village. These can be hired, with a chauffeur to ferry you the four kilometers around the village|
|Old petrol bowsers/pumps in front of the building where we had lunch. This used to be the old post office at Thomas River Village|
This village is situated on one of the really scenic routes on our way home and that's what we decided to do. We phoned and booked our accommodation in the Station Master's House, for the night. We spent a day (after a delicious lunch in the pub, which used to be the old post office) wandering around the conservancy. There is a beautiful old stone church and farmers' hall (exactly like the one where I grew up and like the one in the area where Grant's granddad had a farm - oh the nostalgia!) which is used for weddings and other functions.
|OK, I've chosen you!|
|Thanks for dinner. Where's my bed?|
|He spent the night at the foot of our bed (The accommodation was furnished in the retro style of South Africa in the Sixties)|
