Wilderness weekend 2015

2 – 4 January 2015

Kieron and I drove to the Wilderness for the weekend. My parents and sister were going there for the week. We managed to leave late morning when Kieron realised that he had nothing to do at work. So we headed out at 11:45 am to one of the best places in the world and it happened to be one of childhood holiday places. It was about a 5 hour drive to the Wilderness.

We arrived at the timeshare at 5:30 pm; we beat my parents about 2 mins! It was the best feeling in the world, hehe.

Once we had unpacked I showed Kieron around the place. First week walked down to the beach and went for a walk and watched the sunset. Then it was trampling! My dad started the braai very late so we ate late.

The next morning we got up late, had breakfast and then headed out to Storms River Mouth, which happens to be in the Eastern Cape. Kieron and I seem to be known to suddenly jump into the car and drive to different provinces. On the way we drove through Knysna and Plettenberg Bay, we picked up some rolls for our lunch. Luckily it was only about 2 hours drive, but we waited a long time to get into the park because of the queue. The Storms River Mouth is connected by a swing bridge and surrounded by green forests. This is so beautiful.

There were so many people though once we got into the park. We had our picnic just before walking to the swing bridge.

We arrived back in the Wilderness just in time for us to show and get dressed to go out for dinner.

On Sunday morning we were trampling before breakfast. After the later breakfast we decided to make the most of the last moments of the weekend we had and headed down to the pool. This happened to be green! So we had a plan B which happened to be the beach. Come on we were in the Wilderness! So on the way out we complained about the pool been being green. After our swim, we had a soft serve and then headed back to the timeshare for lunch. There wasn’t much time to do much else there.

We had a shower and then lunch was served. Afterwards we then packed up our stuff and headed off home at around 2:30 pm. Were are differently going to come back!We had supper at Houw Hoek Inn at around 6:30 pm. Then home. 2015-01-03 14.44.50
