Miss Winelands Petite Gerda- Mari’s Photo shoot Featuring on Website

GM_9151

Gerda-Mari was one of the winners of the two vouchers I sponsored for the Miss Winelands Petite 2014 Pageant. This lady is so beautiful I had no problem filling up my memory cards with photo’s of her. She made the most simple outfit look absolutely fantastic…. It took us a while to get a booking that was convenient for everybody but it was surely worth the wait.

For more photo’s of this stunning Lady please visit Gerda- Mari Miss Winelands Petite 2014 on my website

I had the pleasure to capture these beautiful ladies a few weeks back. The daughters decided to do something special and bring their mother for a photo shoot with them. We had so much fun and I enjoyed the shoot very much.

9  September 2013:  Namaqua National park

Another common sight is anthills. From small to big ones. I think it looked absolutely stunning with the yellow and orange flowers around it….

These orange fields of flowers is throughout the whole park. Luckily the roads inside the park was much better than the 20 km we traveled from Kamieskroon.

Just look at the Beautiful flowers on the way to the Namaqua National Park. Our first Sanpark that we visited on our holiday. My dad got hooked on taking photo’s of all the flowers. One can see where I got my love for photography.

When I look back at my childhood my father was always photographing my brother and myself. I have albums full of photo’s of us…. WOW to think I just realized it a few seconds ago. I must remember to go and thank my father… My love for flowers I got from my Grandmother.  I am truly Blessed indeed…

The road to the Namaqua National Park was very bad. One pothole after the other. Some stretches I had to drive on the wrong side of the road. The 20km stretch felt like 120km… At least the view and all the flowers made it all worth while.

The Kliphuis Kombuis a farm stall as you come into Kamieskroon had very cute decorations but it lack in food. They advertised allot of things on their menu board but when one wants to order they did not have any of the stuff on their menu. We wanted to have lunch here at the farm stall but ended up heading to the Namaqua National Park on an empty stomach. I am not one that likes to complain but if you write something on your menu board please ensure you have it.

9  September 2013: Kamieskroon

Kamieskroon is a very small town with dirt roads that is in very poor conditions. One pothole after the other….

Some information on Kamieskroon. Kamieskroon was established in 1924 in the place of a town called Bowesdorp which was abandoned. It is at the foot of the Kamies Mountains where there is a large rock known as the  Kroon (Crown). A long peak known as the Weeskind (Orphan). To the left of Kamieskroon about 20km lies the Namaqua National Park.

9  September 2013: On Route to Kamieskroon

Road works and stop and go’s was part of our holiday.  Everywhere we went we had to stop at  a few of them. But we made the best of these stops. We got out of the car and enjoyed the scenery and capturing our surroundings. The only downside to these stops was in the end it took allot of time some stops was 10 minutes others 20 minutes all depending on the length of the roadworks….

9  September 2013: On Route to Kamieskroon

On route to Kamieskroon we came across this odd looking building.  We thought it was a conference center but when I looked it up it was much more. It’s a holiday destination. Definitely  another place to put on my bucket list to go and visit. I love visiting places with a rich history…

For Contact and booking  information on Griekwa Ratelgat visit Discover South Africa’s site.

“Come and be part the Griqua national heritage and enjoy beautiful sunsets, interesting walks, diverse nature, while staying in beautiful chalets or traditional Nama huts, with breathtaking scenery. An amazing experience and great fun for the family as well as educational. Groups will be entertained by original dancers per arrangement in the amphitheater or groups can be catered for at the Lapa. The Griqua have their own national history, own tradition, leadership that is more than 300 years old, their own flag and monuments, commemorative days, traditional clothing as well as other national traditions that forms part of their identity. The roots of the Griqua can in fact be traced back to 1740 when the first Paramount Chief of the Griquas, Adam Kok I, ruled. In 1894, A.A.S. le Fleur I took over the Paramouncy from the ruling Kok family in the absence of a heir. Today it is owned by the Griqua Ratelgat Development Trust which consists of 85 Griqua beneficiaries who agreed to make the farm available for development as an echo friendly guest farm for the benefit of the Griqua community of South Africa. We provide cultural and tourism facilities which will enable the Griqua community to become part of the main stream economy. Although the Main building is not yet completed the Chalets and huts are fully functional. Once the main building will be completed it will include traditional food restaurant, curio shop, office and small conference/training center, living museum, nursery, tourism and cultural information center. We presently also offer: Fully equipped self catering units, six four beds and six two beds, constructed with natural materials to blend in with environment and braai facilities.
