To Witbank March 25
Today was a great drive along Carriage Way N4. It started with mountain roads with scenic valleys. We passed loggers at work on the hillsides and crews tending to newly planted forest areas. In a medium sized community we passed through we saw a gated community of new houses, and all of them had a satellite TV antenna.
Arriving at N4 we drove through farm areas that made you feel you were traveling through Missouri. Scenic and prosperous looking. At our lunch stop Sally was surprised to see "Seattle Coffee" advertised on large signs outside the Cafe. As I said, you could believe you were in Missouri.
The Witbank RV Park is on a large lake. It is another large recreational area being used by few people. A large community of new houses is in view directly across the lake, with several Nuclear Power Plant towers in the background. A man fishing at the lakeside in front of us said he had formerly owned and farmed the area across the lake, but conditions had changed and made farming less profitable than selling the land for the subdivision.
On the other side of N4 from our RV park is a large new Casino and a new shopping Mall that is the equivalent of a normal sized mall in the US. I was able to get a few more photos uploaded and catch up on E-Mail at the News Cafe, which had free wifi.
We had a cookout in the evening of hot dogs supplemented with the clean-out of all our refrigerators. The evening was cool and it was down to 46 degrees by morning.
