As we had not moved very far from the house since we got here, we thought it was about time to explore this beautiful country, so while Paul cracked on with our new roof, his wife (Jan) and our mutual friend Chris took Dan and I to Emen Gorge.
Literally 5 mins in a car up the road is an Eco-trail, we parked up next to the reservoir and walked into the woods. It was a fabulous day weather-wise and we enjoyed the shade of the trees as we ascended towards the waterfall.
With all the rain we have had lately it was gushing with force over the ridge, churning up the water below and deafening its visitors, but it was still great for Kia to cool off in despite being a little too rough for swimming on this occasion…a great excuse to come back again another time!
We walked to the little village of Emen and enjoyed a couple of bottles of grapefruit beer (you have to try it to believe it) and a plate of chips and cheese before making the return journey via a slightly different route through the dappled sunlight of the woods.
Sunburnt shoulders, a very tired dog and smiles on our faces we returned home to find Paul had made good progress on the roof…result! And what’s more the fireflies are out tonight, what a perfect end to a relaxing day…
