The night skies at Letskraal Guest Farm near Graaff Reinet are just amazing
It was cold and drizzly on the way out of Middelburg. Hopefully Pat’s out there getting coffee ready!
Almost ready to leave Celtis Country Lodge in Middelburg. Dave and Joy’s Giants and Roger’s Haibike wait in anticipation.
Howard admiring these rather magnificent horses on a horse stud near Asemskep.
What a sight for sore eyes: Pat with the kettle boiling.
The weather cleared on the second part of the ride out of Middelburg, the gentle climb up Lessinghoogte Pass offering stunning views of the Karoo.
On the 50km between Asemskep and Nieu Bethesda we passed not a soul. Nothing except a few sheep and horses…
You won’t believe how delicious the cheese platter is at the Fainting Goat Deli and The Brewery at Nieu Bethesda.
Lovely, easy cruising on the way to Nieu Bethesda. And the autumn colours were just amazing.

Vast open spaces on the way to Letskraal.
Lovely to see some wildlife on the ride.
