We had much more rain than the previous 3 years. The flowers are stunning this year. My fiance and I visited the West Coast National park on 22 August 2020 and I was very happy to see that this year the fields are much more colorful. In 2018 my dad and I went and it was mainly Yellow flowers…. This year there is all the colors of the rainbow…
Well it has been an absolute pleasure sharing our weekend at Berghoff Fynbos Farm with you all here on my blog.
Here’s a few more photo’s I took before heading back home…
We had a awesome time although on our way back home Mornè’s car broke. I would not recommend that you go to visit in a normal sedan. Normal cars are not made to withstand that bumpy road. Don’t get me wrong if the roads were in better condition even though it is a dirtroad I would surely visit more often. Unfortunately I do not have a 4×4 or a vehicle that can take the punch.
So to sum up the only reason at this stage that is keeping me from going back is the road. I am not afraid of dirt roads and I love driving on them but the damage and costs involved to fix your car is just too much.
The views on your way back are absolutely stunning….
Thank you for taking the time to look at my work and I look forward to sharing more of my travels with you.
After Breakfast we all went for a walk and I captured the most beautiful landscapes and flowers.
One thing my boys have gotten from me is they both also love nature and photography. At one point in their lives both wanted to persue a career in photography and believe me that was very flattering but I told them that they can always do photography combined with another career or as a paid hobby.
Both are persuing a career in IT and I am super proud of them.
Nothing beats a glass of gin, cranberry juice and tonic while sitting and enjoying the sounds and views before sunset….
Birds calling to one another while getting ready for bed… Even the insects are more noisy than during the day…
Then there is my dad collecting extra wood so that we can make a “geselsvuurtjie” as he calls it. Let me explain this is the fire that is made after the food is finished and we all gather around the fire and sit and talk… These are precious times that I will cherish for the rest of my life….
Dad turned 72 in December 2018 and for the first time in years we went away as a family.
My dad Ivan, myself, my two handsome boys Armand, Lian, my boyfriend Mornè, his daughter Desiree, my Brother Wouter, his wife Kathleen, their two little ones Aran and Morgan. Never since I moved out of the house have we went away as a family.
Spending time with family is very important to me.
Berghoff Fynbos Farm is a great place to have a break from the hustle and bustle of city live.
I told the children we would be cut off from the outside world, but to our surprise when we got there they left us a Wi-Fi code. The children were in 7th heaven but to my surprise they did not sit looking at their little screens the whole day.
We played fingerboard and later they started playing cards.
As I share more photos of our visit to Berghoff I will tell you some more about our weekend.
