Montagu Weekend

We had not been away for a while because of the unusally severe winter weather we have been experiencing but got invited to the Cape Town Motorcycle Clubs annual rally at the Montagu Caravan Park last weekendThis is around the 7th year that they have had it there and we had been to most of them and thus were very familiar with this fine resort, the last visit being 2 years ago.

Wow! is all I can say. The changes that have occurred since our last visit are mind boggling. There is a new pool area on the upper level with an additional indoor heated pool for when the weather is cool. They have improved the ablutions next to the new pool and they are without doubt the nicest I have ever seen in a caravan park. It is wonderful to see the owners of a park putting their profits back into improvements to the facilities. 

The weather over the start of the weekend was not great with persistent rain, however with our setup with the Skipper and a Gazebo we stayed dry and happy. Fortunately we had decided to stay on an extra day and were rewarded with stunning weather on Sunday. We chilled out for the day. I even had a swim! On Monday morning we packed up in fine dry weather and wound our way homewards.

Early on monday morning I walked around and snapped a few shots around the park and it's dam.

Lastly a shot of the Campsite Manager. A real colourful character! He is definitely in complete charge and it you go there you will no doubt meet him. You can click on any of the photo's to see a larger version.
