God’s Window and other such places

People of Mpumalanga don’t suffer from undue modesty – or how else do you explain a place called ‘God’s Window’. But I have to admit, the views are phenomenal. Along the winding mountain roads are little villages with crafts, great restaurant, whisky and – naturally – curios to all tastes.

One of the places we visited was Pilgrim’s Rest – a little village with number of houses restored to their ‘previous glory’. My favourite spot is the old BP Garage and it’s famous car that has been left to ‘Rust in Peace’.

Day 42 – Rest

While I went shopping today (not something I was not very excited about), I dropped Merlin off for a ‘playdate’ at friend’s house (Remember Merlin’s best friend, Jozi from day 21?). The main benefit from taking Merlin there for a day is that he is exhausted afterwards and requires no attention, thus leaving me to read – or edit photos.

Day 36 – Anything left?

Merlin loves food. With passion. His favourite times of the day are the mealtimes and not a second is wasted in gulping down the food. He has also developed a very accurate internal clock for the mealtimes, and is diligent in ensuring we don’t miss the right moment – at least not by more than 10-15 seconds.

Day 23 – Puppies at play

Having two pups in the house is maybe 5 times more effort than having just one… However, it is fun to watch Merlin and Jozi play together. Merlin is quite an introverted and calm little dog – despite being just over a year old -, so seeing him play his heart out is good. And Jozi is a sweetheart.
