Continuing our trip to the Cape earlier this month, we descended from Van Ryn's pass (read about this here ) drove through picturesque Vanrynsdorp and onto the N7. The weather had turned from beautifully sunny earlier that day in the Karoo, to overcast and freezing cold by the time we arrived in the West. Grant stopped at an Engen One Stop and took my Drizabone out and helped me into it. He doesnt seem to feel the cold like I do, but we both always pack these wonderful items of protective gear from Australia into the tank bag.
Soon we were riding through the West Coast Cape and into Clanwilliam.
Clanwilliam on a cold spring afternoon!
We stayed with friends, Catherine and Hilton and spent hours catching up on news. Mostly about grandchildren! Catherine also had my new camera which she'd kindly bought at Makro in Cape Town.
Early on Friday morning we woke to a crisp, clear day. The vapour trail shows how cold the air was above Clanwilliam that morning
More about our trip later today.
