My Mzansi 14/1


Before taking on the long, hot road north
we stopped for the annual cool-down 
in a mountain pool
below a waterfall
where a mermaid is said to be found
at the edge between the Little Karoo and Great Karoo
where it's dry and hot
where millions of years ago
the ocean ebbed

Meiringspoort waterfall

A local family joined in the fun.

There's a whole series of pools all the way from the waterfall, all filled with kids swimming and jumping and slip-n-sliding :-)
