Dreaming About Indezi

Our next adventure is around the corner, writes Penny Rees.

Last Saturday, after spending the morning teaching miniSASS to members of the Rosetta Nottingham Road Conservancy, I headed home to Howick on the dirt road that passes The Windmills, Mount West and Curry’s Post.

Stopping on what feels like the top of the world to eat my lunch, I began to mull over our next adventure – a walk down the Indezi River. It may be familiar to many who travel on the N3 between the Lions River and Nottingham Road off-ramps. The Indezi is the stream that winds along next to the highway, at one point plunging over a pretty waterfall.

Trundling down the Curry’s Post Road past beautiful autumn clothed trees was very pleasant.

I popped in to GroundCover to collect a specially made sheath for Preven’s panga.

Preven always carries this panga on the River Walks, without it we may still have been lost out there in some impenetrable thicket of wattle or bamboo! At last Preven’s fingers and legs will be safe from its wicked blade – thanks GroundCover.

On May 1st 2015 Pandora, Preven and I will set off to record the life and happenings of the Indezi watercourse. If you happen to be driving the highway on the 1st or 2nd of May and see us in our bright blue t-shirts down at the river – give us three hoots!  In support of our rivers, and in memory of – Old Man River Dr Ian Player. We are dedicating this walk to him – he was our walking team mentor, founder of the Dusi Canoe Race and a DUCT Patron who passed away last year.
