Logista Weesgerus WeekendArriving at the resort late Friday afternoon we found the atmosphere very relaxed. Most people were already at the pools drinking a beer or something. I walked around exploring the place a bit, and found a little walking trail exiting just next to the tar road leading to the chalets.

The social committee of Logista did a great job preparing nice boerewors rolls and pap… very traditional South African dishes. After dinner we bought tickets for the under roof steaming hot swimming pool. Here we relaxed the rest of the evening until 22:00 when it closed.

Passed a helicopter landing pad and at the end of the walking trail lead to a beautiful dam with lots of birds, green grass and braai areas to relax. It turns out that this area is the day visitors’ area. After a nice morning of birdwatching, we all went to the dining hall and enjoyed a delicious breakfast. The rest of the day we just relaxed next to the beautiful swimming pools.

Our theme was “The Germans”, two other departments were “Pirates” (of course just after the release of Pirates of the Carribean) and “Boere & Hoere” (directly translated as “Farmers and Whores”). The 4th department just decided not to have a theme… well, too bad for them because we decided they would be party animals and gave each a party hat :-)

The next morning we all slept late except for those that decided to hit the road back home early. Me and Thinus decided to stay the day and spent the whole day being lazy in and out of the hot outside pools.

This was a wonderful weekend and I would recommend Weesgerus for anyone wanting a nice peaceful, quiet weekend away… considering that its not so far from Pretoria and Johannesburg.

Thanks for the social committee of Logista for a great time!
