Vaal river meander

There is something about the presence of water to calm one's soul, that is exactly what the sound of moving water does for what better place to ride to than the river close by - The Vaal river,  in the Free State, South Africa

4 April 2009

We visited , a popular breakfast run for bikers

The "Wholesome and Hearty English Farmhouse Breakfast" was most welcome...
...together with the warm cappuccinos, as the ride had been on the chilly side!

A chapel and wedding reception area

Vaal Boat River Cruises excited passenger!

We drove a little distance away, on a rugged,stony,sand road which the klr handled with ease to get a closer view of the river rapids
Some fly fishermen were fishing for yellow fish...
...a closer look
...another onlooker
the lunchbox came in handy

and so ended our ride for the day but it wasn't the end to our visit to the Vaal river 
...but that is another page in my diary


  1. I have to agree, there is something about being by the water. That's where I want to be!

  2. We share two natural tranquilizers namely biking and water :-)
