Garden Rugby

Today we headed up the road a little bit to the Walter Sisulu National Botanical Gardens at Roodepoort . The gardens are just beautiful, such a large open space so close to the city that i never knew about before this trip. We explored the gardens and climbed to the top of the ridge for a bit of a view. Phew hiking at 1700m above sea level is pretty serious effort !!!

From the gardens we grabbed some ingredients for breaky tomorrow, a quick bite to eat for lunch and then headed home from where we headed off to get Charmaine from work, Dylan from Cricket and then onto Ellis Stadium for Super Rugby.

As it turned out the local team, the lions schooled themselves in how to lose a football pretty darn well, so in other words they lost ! but it was a brilliant night.
