It was a spur of the moment decision to stay overnight. We dared the hunters lodge and I am just so sorry that I couldnt find the oil lamps so we were in total darkness all night without a torch hehehehe - a story I will be telling for a very long time. Francel you are a special lady and your hospitality is amazing. Thanks very much.
