I was overwhelmed with the beauty of Goegap Nature Reserve in Springbok where the spring flowers were blooming abundantly at the time.

We had only a week to explore this beautiful part of our country and I think that our stay in the Honnehokke in Hondeklipbay was the highlight of it all.  Never in my life will I forget this vista as we crested a hill on the Groenspoeg 4×4 route.

Now, only four years later, we are even more privileged to tour the Northern Cape and this time the Western Cape as well with three of my siblings and their spouses.  I cannot wait and am busily making lists and gathering recipes for long nights around a campfire.  Yes!  We are going to camp this time and we have anxiously been watching the long-term weather forecasts to find out what we can expect.  Several cold fronts have rolled in during the past weeks and several more are forecasted but that doesn’t scare us.

Our tent is now equipped with a lining that can be clipped on and off as needed and I really hope that it will make a difference to the temperature inside the tent (not only because I like to sleep snugly, but also to prove to my husband that it WILL make a difference 😉 )

I’m signing off now to pack and prepare but I will hopefully share beautiful pictures of our family camping trip with you when we return.

Watch this space…
