Freshwater Pond

A rare freshwater pond at an old farmstead above Pedi. It took us a good hour or more to walk to this place that sits on a saddle between two valleys but it was well worth it. I am told it does not dry out in the summer and I could well believe that. It looks very deep in the centre and I was also told that there were fish. Well not today but there was a dragonfly which darted across the pond for a short while and then flew off before I could get a decent picture of it.
