Pretty in De Rust


De Rust is a pretty little town in the Karoo other side of Oudtshoorn. The little town has interesting little shops and restaurants scattered along the main road.



A picturesque village situated at the southern entrance to Meiringspoort ... it oozes unexpected charm .... like these donkey taxis ...

I was charmed by the old houses there ... a lot of them lovingly restored.




a green one ... many of the houses had the curved veranda roofs like this one ...






... and a pinky / peach one with white trim ...





.... lemon and lilac ....






and a white and red one ... arn't they beautiful?




Accommodation seems plentiful .. and some a bit different like this one ... ever thought about sleeping in an ox wagon?
