Finally a great weather day - as I woke early, I went and sat and watched the sunrise slowly creep across the Drakensburg Mountains - a very special sight.
After breakfast, we drove just a mile or so to a Bird of Prey center for an exhibition of raptor behaviour. They rehab birds at this center, many of which return to the wild. They put on a great show - the demonstrator will release an eagle who then finds a thermal and rides it up a thousand feet or so - at which time out comes a piece of chicken in the trainer's hand. The bird then dives vertically down at terrific speed to grab the chicken, sometimes even in mid-air. Great show.
This afternoon we went into Ladysmith, an hour's drive, to visit a museum and try find a computor store - forgetting that everything shuts on Saturday afternoon. So, lunch at Chickin Lickin, then a slow meander back to Champagne Castle.
Stopped at some gift stores along the way back and found a new car accessory.
