The second epic journey - Part 12

We packed the last few things and our host had kindly booked a boat trip (with picknic) at Vioolsdrift wine estate for us. We took our time to get there, got a free wine tasting, included in the price. Both of us were still recovering from the hike the day before, so this trip was just what we needed.

The trip is approximately two hours on the river - surrounded by beauty and quiet.

We bought some bread and wine to take on the trip, but after half a bottle we both were a little tired, so we took our blanket, and tried to take a nap under the tree. we started chatting instead.

The main throughfare in Robertson hosts great coffee shops as well as some stunning art galleries. I could not resist taking this picture. (oops, sorry, did not see the sign)

We drove to Robertson and found a bottom-of-the-range hotel. We were the only guests.... We took a dip in the pool. We then needed WiFi and found some at the Dros, after a lovely walk through the town. Although, do not trust the signage in the town, you will not find what you are looking for! After this excursion, we arrived back at the hotel (in the dark) and got a concerned call from the owners whether we were ok... Sweet.

A few impressions from the town (the collection is growing)

The moon was out.... later that night in a blustering wind

Good night
