South Africa 2008 – Day 4 Chilling in Nature’s Valley

Got up early to go down to the beach for a swim. However the water was very cold so just went for a paddle and played Frisbee instead. The only plan for today really was to pick up everything we need to survive the walk. First we sat down and compared our equipment (ooh err!) and decided what we needed to take and what we could afford to leave behind. We also made a list of food we wanted to take and planned meals for the 5 days of the walk.

After lunch at a nice restaurant that was very nearly in the sea, we made several trips to the local supermarket. We kept leaving and then realising that there was more stuff to buy. Eventually we were reasonably sure that we had covered all of the possibilities and headed home to sort out what we had bought. Was slightly worrying to think that we were going to have to carry all of this on our backs!

Dave and Neil divided the food up into neat piles for each of us to take. We were still not sure at this point whether or not Louise was going to be joining us but made 6 piles of everything just in case.
