The city people arrived in the Central Drakensberg in their droves on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. And this, the Cedarwood Village Mall is now one of the popular destinations in the Valley.
Not only that; we've had incredibly hot and dusty weather for the past two months. Saturday morning we woke to a heavy mizzly rain. Visitors are often disappointed when the weather is inclement, and stop off at the shops to find a hot coffee or cuppachino or to browse. this caused businesses to do a roaring trade on Saturday and Sunday.
The parking lot was almost too small for all the cars

On Saturday morning, restrateurs of The Purple Giraffe had car problems. It wouldn't start so Linda and Craig walked from their home on a farm to the centre - a full four kilometers! Grant took Craig back to his house, fixed the problem and the two men returned to the centre in their cars. The day before a local farmer brought his lawnmower to Grant's workshop to repair. That afternoon Grant phoned the farmer and said he could collect the machine. The grateful man paid Grant and asked if he could bring another after the weekend!
HAPPY MONDAY TO YOU ALL!
