Meadows


We went Boondocking again in the Bearberry Valley on crown-land, near Sundre, Alberta. We call this spot “The Meadows”. Please click on photo for larger image. ©

We shared the area with some inquisitive Deer. Please click on photo for larger image. ©

When we got there, we found poles to build a Tepee, a stone ring for a fire-pit, some broken glass and home made tent-pegs stuck into the ground, causing hubby to go the hospital and get 7 stitches in he’s toe, even though he wore sandals. Please click on photo for larger image. ©

We covered the poles with tarp for a rain-shelter which was also a popular kitchen. Always remember put away all food at night or when not at your camp. Please click for larger photo. ©

The next day friends joined us and we made a big breakfast of scrambled eggs, fried bacon and toasted bread-rolls. Please click on photo for larger image. ©

Our friends made a delicious “Otjie Potjie” (Pork Pot), with Pig’s trotters, corn on the cob, carrots, potatoes, onions, mushrooms and mixed vegetables. Potjiekos. Please click on photo for larger image. ©

“Potjiekos” ( literally meaning pot-food) has been part of South Africa’s culture for many centuries. When the first Dutch settlers arrived in the Cape, they brought with them their ways of cooking food in heavy cast iron pots, which hung from the kitchen hearth above the fire.” South Africa Tours

The mosquitoes and the Deer-flies especially were very bad. Fortunately we had come prepared for the mosquitoes and with the gorgeous weather and positive spirit everyone took the nuisance in their stride.  One evening we heard the horses galloping past our campsite.
