21st sort of

Bit of a grey and misty morning so decided to head for the small town of Winterton about 25 K’s away. Passed a sign to a place called Ardmore and African Loom. Took a right and 5k’s down a dirt road there we were. Ardmore is a small self catering cottage complex with a weaving workshop and shop selling goods made very locally, all proceeds and profit going to help the local kids education and single family’s with HIV. Had an interesting chat with manager with regard to their funding and projects. Offered complimentary coffee and muffin in the garden.
Off again towards Winterton and passed a place weaving rugs. Lots of locally made rugs of all sizes and materials, wool, cotton, silk and leather. We now have even more luggage to bring home. The owners wife is Chinese and runs the restaurant at the side. Had a freshly made sushi lunch while our purchase was packed. Eventually got to Winterton, a typical one horse town. Didn’t stay long, the Spar didn’t have any tea we wanted. Still grey and misty on the high Berg.
