3 November 2014
The minute we took the turn off I was in another world. A kind of carefree attitude became part of me and lasted until I closed your gate behind me. This was one of the most memorable weekends I have ever had.
My husband and I had a serene moment while sitting at a very big rock on the Duiker route. We did not speak a word to each other for 10 minutes but I felt so connected to him and he to me. The fact that we were in the Forrest Cottage made the weekend even better. Only us, the bush, birds and the feeling that you are dreaming and don't want to wake up to bring the dream to an end.
The mist over the mountains made everything more spectacular. I can write a book about my weekend. Early morning quick splash was better than any session at the psychologist.
We decided that we actually do not want to tell anyone about this piece of paradise, but realized that it is impossible to keep this a secret. We are definitely back next year for our (me and my husband) 50th. Staff are really excellent, well informed, friendly and very professional. Bush Picnic, fantastic. See you in 2015.
