Everyone met at the Berg and Bush camp before the start of the hike (obviously someone arrived here and all were looking in that direction!)
We started off at 7.40 walking along the banks of the Tugela River. A beautiful shaded walk with a few inclines and crossing pole bridges.
Every picture tells a story: one lady is pointing at the river; two people look that way. The other is pointing at trees on the high banks: two are looking there!
The mighty Tugela River
A lovely meander in the shade of the huge trees lining the river
At one point we exited to the left and walked along farmlands - a beautiful bucolic scene
After walking for an hour and forty minutes we stopped for tea
Grant and Anthony chat over coffee and sandwiches
On the return walk, I photographed a path constructed
to slide your tube from the top of the TOP bank...
...down the next bank and into the river
Before we got back into our allotted transport, friend Jenny checked her Smartphone app and announced that we'd done 7.6km and 13000 steps. Not a strenuous walk but energizing and invigorating all the same !
HAPPY THURSDAY TO YOU ALL
