i guess we could not have picked a better place to be locked down in, [ not that it was planned ] but it certainly worked out real good. the park is closed and has been since lock down , no new entries are or have been allowed in, the park gates are locked and we were all advised to stock up [ which we did ] and limit leaving the park and returning only if its urgent. management will open the gate on urgent requests but you will get the full spray treatment upon re entry . the belief is that we dont have the virus in the park, and we intend keeping it that way. social distancing is the norm as we dont  " kuier " and family's that walk around are just that , one family. its different, caravaners are not normally " isolate " people, however the life style suits us just fine , 

we got a surprise visit from edge [ campervan ] a short while ago, [ before this virus stuff ] always good to see edge , [ we had met him previously wilst at margate last year ] we discussed past and future travels over coffee over the afternoon. he is a very experienced man in that regard.

well, its a rainy day here today, however we have the river camp as our front yard, the main park as our back yard and the park workshop is my play ground. LG lifes good

I would have liked to be lockedown in Kruger. But at home. Plaster is now off and mobility is coming back....but stuck at home. I luckily managed to get a long flight in before the lockdown!

Groete,
Paul

Ek het ook so gedink, maar wonder of ek 21 dae vasgevang wil wees onder my karavaan tent....ek wil darem bietjie rond beweeg ook.

Brian, have not seen any holiday makers, there were before the lock down but most had planed a week or so over school holidays and were not geared for the lock down, as we saw a mass exodus of caravans in those two days before the lock down. there is however and i guess  ta mate about fifty pensioner couples if not more that have hunkered down here.

Stem saam. As ek 21 dae in my karavaan vasgepen is sal ek die ding verkoop en nooit weer in een klim nie...😁

we have been living in our caravan for a year and two months now in different locations around the country , its a life style. 21 days lock down is neither here nor there, more so here at yellow sands, its like been locked down on a farm and a river runs through it with a private beach on one side..
