As early as can be expected, we got on the road heading out towards the Orange River to celebrate and wave goodbye to another year at the Renault Club.
Arriving mid-morning at Mike and Anne-Marie's getaway spot, the guys lined up all the cars next to the wall. A very distraught bird (the feathered variety) was flitting about, since someone managed to park right next to her nest. The plastic cars were banned from the line-up and had to park next to the braai facilities.
Everyone started unpacking and tenting up furiously - the relaxing needed to begin! With everything in place and the spit going nicely it was time to ‘kuier'!
After indulging in the cool drinks (and cooldrinks), a three-legged obstacle course was underway. Lots of laughing, confusion and mis-steps off into the swimming pool later, the day was truly in swing! Lunch seemed to continue forever, thanks to the huge amount of food prepared – thank you to everyone involved. Afterwards, a small group went about exploring the surrounds.
As the day was drawing to a close, we cleaned up, packed up and got back on the road towards Jo'burg.
I'm sure everyone that joined us on the day, like me, would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to Mike and Anne-Marie for hosting such a great day for us!
