Grant and I still seem to work on our North African body clocks which were an hour ahead of South Africa therefore I'm posting this mid-week family time as a weekend happening. Accommodation around the country is also cheaper during the week and as we can visit anytime, this time was as good as any.
On Wednesday we joined John and Debbie and family in the Drakensberg. They were looking after a backpackers lodge for a friend. I will post more about this lodge in tomorrow's post.
We returned home on Friday at midday and had a rather full weekend programme which I will post about later on in the week.
The Hedges grandchildren love the outdoors and of course, stomping through mud puddles in the road while out walking is great fun!
These round huts with thatched roofs are known in South Africa as rondawels and are very popular as holiday accommodation
The accommodation is surrounded by flowering plants, wild bushy shrubs and indigenous succulents and trees which are backed by the magnificent Drakensberg mountains still shrouded in early morning mist
I took number two and three grandchildren for a walk in the fields while their mum home-schooled our oldest (number one) granddaughter. Here big brother gives his sister a flower. In fact, he picked so many flowers for Gran and his sister that the pram was soon full of blooms!
Mmm, the flowers smell nice!
Our littlest girl is walking! She turned 20 months on Saturday.
