The day after Christmas:26 December 2020

Good day friends,

This morning I was drinking my coffee and, doing some light reading when a thought popped into my head to go to the beach today. Not long after Mornè asked me what are we going to do today. I told him maybe we must go to Yzerfontein for the day.

He then said the beaches are closed. I googled and saw the beaches was open here in the Western Cape. So we headed to Tableview and walked all the way to Blaauwberg.

We walked 8.12 km this morning. After our walk we went to lunch and ended our day with a nice ice-cream.

Today I left my camera at home. So I took a few photos with my Huawei P30 lite.

Thank you for your support and taking the time to look at my post.

Flower of the day Challenge – 22 June 2020

My flower of the day is Garden Nasturtium of as we know it Kappertjies. Today my mother would have been 74 years old. Since I can remember she loved these beautiful flowers.

Our garden by the pool was full of them and in different colors. When Mom and dad moved here the first flower she planted was Nasturtiums….

Exploring Cape Town: Bo Kaap

It took me a few years of promising myself that I am going to explore the Bo Kaap in Cape Town. At long last I was able to do it in May 2019.

We spend about an hour walking around and I took some photo’s. I must say it was very busy and you had to keep a eye on the traffic too.

We visited Atlas the spice shop on Waal Street.

I would like to go to the Bo Kaap again early morning when it is not so busy so that I can take some more photos of the colorful historical buildings. I also think we missed a few streets and hidden gems…

So photographing the Bo Kaap is back on my Photography Bucket List….

Here is some interesting facts of the Bo Kaap that I got from the internet…. For more information please visit Cape Town Travel

The earliest development in the Bo Kaap area was undertaken in the 1760s by Jan de Waal. Subsequently, the area became known as Waalendorp. It has also been known as the Malay Quarter, the Slamse Buurt, and Scotcheskloof. Translated from Afrikaans, Bo Kaap means ‘Above the Cape’.
Part of the Bo Kaap’s charm is the mix of Cape Dutch and Cape Georgian architectural styles. You can actually visit one of the oldest buildings in the Bo Kaap because it has been turned into a museum. The Bo Kaap Museum, which showcases local Islamic culture and heritage, was built by Jan de Waal in 1768, and is the oldest house in the area still in its original form.

Random photos of a March Lily

Hi everyone,

Just some photo’s I took of the March Lilies in our garden when it bloomed in March 2019. I took it over a period of two weeks.

This year it was beautiful and kept blooming for a while. Looking forward to see them again in 2020….

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.

I am not going to say much today. Here are some random photos of seagulls taken at Table View during our visit there in March 2019.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.

Round and Round it goes to nowhere…

While walking I spotted this piece of seabamboo on the beach. I saw a great photo in my mindseye but when the waves came it looked 100 better than I imagined.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. Hope you aren’t too dizzy…
