Karoo - Day5 Leg16 - Grumpy old duck

Having filled the bikes up, we now needed something to eat and drink ourselves. We went up to the Willowmore historic guest house to see if they were open and selling food. We found they were there and open but the kitchen was closed, so we had a look around the place, it's old pub full of historic memorabilia. We couldn't help noticing the rather grumpy looking old timer glaring out the wall at us. She may not have approved of us "Biker" types. There are a few pictures below showing her.

We then headed into town to another place the owner owns which was open and selling food and got ourselves and fantastic meal there with a few beers, before setting out along the next long stretch of gravel road.

This is the daily blog from A short series on the Karoo Motorbike tour we took on during September 2011. See the plans for the trip blog here: Planning a 6 day 2500km route through the Karoo maximising dirt
More South and Southern African motor cycle tours on our list of tour route summaries are available, where we explore these sorts of motorcycle tour routes. Just choose one of our events and reserve yourself a place on one of the future motorcycle adventure safari events.
