Up here you see The Troll house, where we stayed so comfortably during our week there. To tell the truth, when I saw the name and the spooky picture on the internet, I skipped right past.
I contacted the owner about another place, which was full, and she said she had this place available. So I had a look at more photo's and liked what I saw, and was desperate enough to want to stay near my husband's project. So we took it and we went and it was a wonderful stay. (Ok the four star rating also helped - and it was indeed very cosy).

This page records Wednesday. I loved the skies after the daily thunderstorms. I took a few pictures of the view from the stoep with different backgrounds- all beautiful. And I loved reading a book for the first time in ...no idea actually. It was Lineage of Grace, and I ended up buying the book to read the other stories I didn't read during our stay.
Also enjoyed finding different fruit trees in the garden.. figs, grapes and apples.
Documenting Thursday-Saturday. I added Sunday to the next page as it was the 1st of December.
In spite of it being end of November, it was quite cold and rainy for a day or so. We still went into town to browse some shops- isn't the wood fireplace in the Tsonga shoe shop just wonderful? The whole village smelled amazing from all the fireplaces going.
And so did this coffee place - even for a non coffee drinker. I'm glad we "fitted in" going to the craft shop. It was so good to see them all enthusiastic about making mosaics. We took the six hour detour drive back home on Friday. Saturday we were sorting out some home stuff - like taking our Wirehaired Terrier to the doggy parlour for a summer shave. Looking all forlorn here..This was also the last photo I took with my DSLR before it mysteriously died. The battery seemed fine, as it worked in the video camera. I had to borrow my son's little camera for a few days until I got some help, but more of that in the next post.
Hope you check back for my pages on our trip to Durban, coming soon.
