Throwback Thursday: 12 November 2020

Good day everybody,

Today we go back to 9 September 2013 and continue on our Tour de Sanparks.

Namaqua National Park was covered in an orange cloak as far as the eye can see. I have never seen so many orange flowers together. It was spectacular.

Fields of Orange flowers

Dad loves anthills and, here in the Namaqua National Park there, was no shortage of all shapes and sizes anthills. I think the ants are very lucky to have such a beautiful flower carpet around their home.

The roads inside the park was much better. Not that many potholes and bad patches.

Much better roads in the park.

We stopped a lot and got out of the car to capture the flowers up close. I was in awe. I could not believe the variety of flowers on a small patch of ground.

Just look at the different flowers in a small area.

Beautiful Orange flowers. Still trying to identify it.

That’s it for now, friends. Thank you very much for traveling back in time with me.

Have a fabulous day. 

Keep safe and healthy.
