Waffles and Pooches

As mentioned in yesterday’s post, we had to cancel last night’s stay at the pet-friendly Gracelands Beach Lodge in Ramsgate. Thankfully, The Fossil’s friend, Françoise Malby-Anthony, extended our stay at Garden On The Beach (aka Sorgente 101), so I got to walk along uMdloti beach again this morning!

But he wants to walk the coastline, so we’re sadly leaving the pet-friendly Arumvale Self Catering Country House in Swellendam and heading for Struisbaai today. The Fossil (aka Desmond) drove the Mahindra PIKUP along the R319 towards […]
