    Memel Day 1

    February 7, 2017 in South Africa ⋅ 🌙 17 °C

    Schalk came for breakfast and then we went birding in the Seekoeivlei. It was quite wet and there were one or two watery 4x4 spots we had to swim through.
    We checked in at the first bird hide - which we all reckoned was not ideally designed; at the second hide the road was a river so we couldn't stop 😫 Juanita swam through and then we turned around and swam back - to get back to the entrance.
    The official at the gate was a Mr Manganye who said the Waterberg is his home area.
    We then drove all the way around the Vlei. The road wasn't too hot but the birding was great ( except for several LBJ'S 😏).
    It was lunch time by the time we got home, so we had bread and cheese and then decided to take the afternoon off.
    POps wasn't feeling well and both he and Schalk wanted to watch cricket and then it rained and rained so that was OK.
