A dirty dozen of us Hurriers felt grateful and sorrowful for our Flower Show members who were not able to join us in the lovely walk over Rotary Way to Plaas Kombuis.
Mike Bryan, Ed and Ross (with his new Kidbrooke colleague) were kindly waiting for me at 7am at Plaas Kombuis so that we could leave three cars there to give lifts back to Bosko after the walk, When we got back to Bosko just before 07h30 Piet and Martha were ready to lead us gently up the Elephant track to Rotary Way. Also there at the start were Kinky, Carol and John, Sally waiting for Ed, and Hedley Tarlton, The wind was crisp on the way up but more than compensated by stunning views of the ocean as usual.
By the time we were walking down the other side into the Hemel en Aarde through Hamilton Russel vineyards the sun was taking the temperature up from 15 to the 20 degrees we enjoyed by the end. You could be in the Chianti area of Italy when you’re walking down there through the vineyards, past the tasting room over the dam wall, through the trees to the farm road past the stables. Just a lot cheaper and less crowded!
Great coffee for all dozen in the enclosed valley view Plaas Kombuis now offer and by 11h00 we were all on our way back to Bosko to fetch cars and go home!
Thanks for everyone’ generous support.
Look forward to seeing you at the flower show!
Thanks for the report, Mick. Sorry we could not be with you, but we were doing duty collecting specimens for the Flower Show
