Still recovering from Brunette Suikerbos’s baby sister’s wedding, the Suikerbossies took some of the family on a scenic drive along Clarence Drive for a visit to Hermanus.  This also served as an introduction to geocaching to Brunette’s aunt, as well as newly converted geocaching team – Boer&Brit, or better known as Brunette’s expecting middle sister and her British hubby.

Having had a MISSING TRACKABLE scare involving Bacchus, the Thirsty Bactrian Camel last left in the This Is My Valley cache in the Du Toitskloof Pass, Suikerbossies had retrieved it for safety reasons, and decided to leave it in this International Cache to the great delight of newly acquainted German cachers, Shamrock47, who promptly agreed to take the little TB to back to Germany.
