Kaleo Weekend Outing

14 – 16 April 2023

Unfortunately, George who organised the trip had an accident and could not come (editors note:  George and Cheryl are fine and unharmed but their vehicle’s transmission was damaged in the fender bender and needs to be repaired, hence George and Cheryl being unable to join on the weekend trip).

Schalk and Rieta and Neville and Etha could not make it either.

Val and I arrived at Kaleo about 1pm on Friday. Gilbert and friends came up the day before and were put in luxury campsite by mistake. We carried on to the Bush camp which was nice! Trevor and Ronel were already there, soon thereafter Mel and Louise, Ken and Shona and Vic and Ann arrived.

Val and I walked up to the swemgat, a great pool with a deck.

We had a good sighting of an owl.

As usual in the evening we settled down around the fire to braai, talk and drink…. being happy under the stars!

It was a pretty cold night – about 1 degree minus!

Saturday after a leisurely breakfast, Vic and myself with Ken and Shona in my car set off for a scenic drive while everybody else went for a walk or relaxed.

 After our drive we met Val at the swemgat and had a picnic on the deck.

In the evening we took up the positions around the fire as usual but we did have 2 fires just to make Andy jealous! 😊

Sunday was pack up and home after another great weekend. Thanks to George for organising it – sorry you could not be with us, it’s a great place to visit again!
