What our Mid-Weekers have been up to lately...

Late 2009 and early 2010

CASTLE  GORGE  -  24 February.   Roger and Jean.  Roger has recently taken over the position of Vice CHairman of the hiking club.

KHATHLAMPI  -  Place of Our Forefathers.    
This wonderful peice of property used to be a trout farm.  It has 15 springs which feed a number of ponds,  most of which are filled with pink and white water lillies.  
This is where we came upon a three metre python.

James Smith took a group of us to Pretoria,  where we walked around Melrose House, Burgers Park, Church Square and Capital Theater.   The entrance to the theater is still in good shape, with a restaurant,  but the actual theater is now a parking garage.
