SWEET, SWEET WA­TER

Go! Camp & Drive - - News - ASA BESSLEY Mitchels Plain

Af­ter 34 years our fam­ily de­cided to go camp at Soet­wa­ter close to Kom­metjie again. We man­aged to fit all our camp­ing gear into two cars and two bakkies and we drove the beau­ti­ful coastal road past Scar­bor­ough to Soet­wa­ter. When we ar­rived, the guys had to hus­tle to pitch the tents while my friend Nazeem Hen­dricks got the fires go­ing. Af­ter the braai the con­ver­sa­tion kept go­ing and we even­tu­ally fin­ished all the wood. The next morn­ing we had to buy more and I also bought a great tree stump next to the road for R10 to keep the fire burn­ing for even longer. Back at Soet­wa­ter we saw a di­verse crowd of campers who had all come to re­lax next to the wa­ter. In the one cor­ner was a group of bik­ers and on the op­po­site side, nuns. We were go­ing to stay till the Mon­day be­cause it was a long week­end but then we heard rain was com­ing so we packed up and left a day early. We en­joyed it so much we’ve booked again.
