The moment i walked down the Aisle, with my Dad; "You have no idea how fast my heart raced when i saw you" Your Smile, your teary eyes, they sparkled EVEN A bit more when you saw me!!
THIS Moment was the moment that i have been dreaming off.
Yes we went on a Local fishing trip for Honeymoon.....
Yes we went fishing.......!!!!!
Wouldn't change any off it for the world,
3 days was spent at: Out of Africa on Vaal.
"Great atmosphere! peaceful surroundings.
Tranquility to have some fishing fun! They have beautiful clean cottages"
Our pit stop was in Parys, the quiet little Free State town for breakfast doing site seeing though there abundance of Antiques and Gift shops. Our 2nd stopover was with Dockside Lodge and Tented Camp
"From arrival to departure, we felt welcome and at home". The atmosphere is great and very social, their chalet/tents are also very comfortable and clean. Great fishing spot. !!! Honestly, we will definitely be returning for future ventures to Dockside where we were not just treated like a friend but more like Family......
Fishing as our honeymoon was the best Time ever, we ended our experiences with a nice boat cruise on the Vaal Marina Dam.
