Feeling the need to get out into the fresh air, I woke up early(ish) this morning, punched in the address for Askari Game Lodge into Google maps on my Galaxy tab, hit navigation and headed off to Magaliesburg.
They’d advertised that they were having a Christmas market today. I’m not really into the whole market thing but this one, being at a Big Five game lodge, had a certain appeal and it was a good excuse to get out into the countryside. Not that one needs an excuse.
The market was nothing to write home about, although I did find a stall that had the most comfortable shoes I have ever tried on in my life. Unfortunately they didn’t have a card machine and the nearest ATM was probably a good 20km’s away, so I got their contact details and will definitely be getting myself a pair of those Aerosoft shoes.
The weather was perfect – sunny but not too hot and the drive was pleasant. I popped into Goblin’s Cove on my way back. It brought back some very happy memories of a time when my sister took me out that way for my 40th and our first stop was at Goblin’s Cove for breakfast.
