Road tripping from Benoni to Port Elizabeth is a great way to see the countryside.
With a boot filled with bags and an early morning start,
we were ready to begin the long day’s journey.
The last view of cosmos I’ll see for a while.
Even at the tail end of the season, the sunflowers are gorgeous.
This cute sign on the truck became our mantra for the trip.
Frequent stops gave us the chance to stretch our legs and take in the beautiful views.
We even discovered why the chicken crossed the road – to get petrol 🙂
Golden grass and the blue skies were common sights.
As the afternoon wore on, the clouds grew stormier.
Driving through the storm seemed like a dream, as we soon returned to clear skies.
We drove over the bridge overlooking Gariep Dam.
Two chestnuts stand guard over an abandoned farm house,
grazing placidly in the afternoon.
As the day wore on we hoped to stick to the 120km speed limit,
but alas, got stuck behind a few trucks instead.
Safe in PE with a cat cuddle to boot.
