Very early on a cold Highveld autumn morning,
my wife and I find ourselves standing under this heater on the deck of Bill Harrop's clubhouse.
Even though there are gas heaters, a "proper" wood fire adds to the atmosphere.
I had misread the meeting time and we had arrived almost an hour early!
This youngster had the right idea.
Although cold away from the heat,
the burners in the basket keep guests warm during the flight.
Almost time to board.
The black balloon is used in place of a windsock.
Bill explained that a regular windsock is not accurate enough.
