From the blog:

Two days of coaching drained me and I sat down on the riverbank in the campsite to do a sketch of the river.  There were people from up-country in George for school holidays and a big schools-rugby event.  People from inland seem to be far more friendly and outgoing than locals in the Cape and everyone said “Hi” and made a comment about the beauty of the area.   As I sat, the father of one of the rugby players brought a camp stool and sat with me.  Community is such a pleasant thing.  While his son plaited leaves from the reeds and he knotted them – I painted. Then I went to lie down for a rest, thinking I would go to Pomodoro for supper.

A crowd of local families had pitched camp nearby and some played beautiful guitar music while someone else played on a bongo drum.  I think someone sang, I am not sure because I drifted off and woke up after midnight as they packed away.   I had a shower and went back to sleep.   In the morning I got up slowly and wandered up the trail on the other side of the river, with a mission.  I wanted to paint and video.  And I did.
