At the Napier Patatfees last weekend there were some local heroes participating in in 25+KM trial run which went from the Vierfontein farm up to Sophes Mountain and down to the festival area in the village. That was a climb almost 1 kilometer through a rough landscape.
And there were a few Napierians participating; two even without training!!!
No more words needed:
… and After
Some of the vistas the trail runners will experience this Sunday morning.
From banana shed to ‘Banana House’:
Interior photo’s of our guest room. We refurbished the old banana shed into a guest room. Minimalist style with all essentials in it and with respect for the original century old plastering of the wall.
Guest have a view on a new landscaped water wise garden and there is secure parking. WiFi free available in (partly covered) communal courtyard.
Greta’s Place in Napier is the hotspot where collectors from far and wide browse. Around this time of the year many customers from ‘Up North’ make their annual Festive Season journey ‘Down South’. Greta is a 70+ yr old collector who loves books and ‘beautiful junk’. She knows her books of which many are first editions and quite a few real collectors items. Wonder around between the shelves with books, tables and more shelves with figurines and other curiosities. Her customers always find something. And if need be; there is always Palazzo Pipi….
