Sani Weekend – Post 5 (round and about)

Even though driving Sani Pass was the highlight of our long weekend we still had time on our hands to drive around the Underburg/Himeville area to explore.

We attended the Himeville Christmas fete the Saturday morning. A very strict (read sourpuss) old lady made sure we entered at exactly 9 o’clock the morning and not a minute before 🙂

The stuff on display was typical home-craft goodies and mingling with the locals was quite a pleasant experience.

We stopped at a few roadside eateries and curio type shops to have some drinks and eats. The area is scattered with similar places and once again it is impossible to show everything. This farm was the starting hub for quite a few MTB trails and the kids(and Charmain) enjoyed feeding the animals.

We stumbled upon Castleburn and in less than 2 weeks time we will visit it with our kids that will have a holiday there.

Nearly at the end of our stay at the Sani Pass hotel we took the walk to a waterfall on their premises. Wowwww!! will have to go back there one day to take some decent pictures. Here is a taste of what we saw.

I would like to end this trip report with some last pics taken and once again thank my travel companion, friend, sponsor, gaffer and love of my life for sharing every magical moment with me.

Looking forward to our trip to the area of Rhodes in less than 2 weeks time.
