Day 23 - Leg 7 - Steytlerville Michelle's Verandah Coffee Shop

This continues the series of my Motorcycle Adventure travels from Durban back to Cape Town which was the fourth goal, over what had now become quite a few weeks. Details of the "" whole trip here.

Well having arrived in Steytlerville on a Saturday afternoon, the only signs of life were at the local hotel where I noticed a bunch of men getting ready to watch the rugby on TV. I really felt like a coffee and so headed back down to the Verandah Coffee Shop I'd passed as I rode into town. It had a flashing neon light saying OPEN so I thought I'd try that and get something to eat as well.

I found the door locked but on looking around the back found Michelle and she quickly brought me a Cappuccino and a large home made muffin. We started chatting and it turns out she also comes from the same home town as I do. They moved here to pursue their dream of living in a small Karoo town and running a coffee shop (and more as you will see in the next blog)

All the visitor have signed the wall over the years - there was not even one place left for me to sign

I headed for a place in the sun and sat and relaxed

Round the back of the Coffee Shop - a school children crossing sign?

And an old sign to the town I was in?

But this was the funniest of them all - Beware of these two? Must be very vicious!
