Exploring South Africa town by town: Worcester and surroundings – View from a hill Part 5

Hubby and I went to Worcester one morning very early. It was freezing cold but I wanted to go and take photo’s of the town Worcester…. Well I never got to take any photo’s of the town centre and buildings but I am not complaining I got to capture some beautiful  landscape scenes and also some flowers and plants.

After we visited the Nuy Valley, Butch took us to a small private nature reserve on a hill. The views was stunning and I got to take some beautiful photo’s of the plants. The plan is to go back there in September or October and make a day out of it. There are so many plant species on that hill and I would love to try and photograph them all. For now here are the few I did photograph.

I just love Aloe’s and the orange and yellow went so well with the background.

This road is very picturistic but due to traffic we did not stop along the road. That will be a trip for another day. Worcester_8283 Worcester_8284 Worcester_8285

Hubby had to go and test some rifles and I said I want to go with. To be honest I was afraid of being alone in town with my camera gear. I have to think safety first in this new South Africa. I am a lady with expensive gear  and I am not very strong. That makes me a target. I know this is not what people want to hear but in this day and age one has to face the facts. Crime pays and insurance companies will always have a reason why they are not going to pay…

So off we went to a farm in the  NUY Valley about 30 km from Worcester. My jaw dropped when I saw the Langeberg Mountains reflecting in the water…  When we got to the shooting range I took my camera bag and camera and went exploring.  My hands was freezing but I enjoyed every moment and got some stunning photo’s….

Exploring South Africa town by town: Worcester – Kleinplasie Part 13

“Worcester in the Breede River Valley has a rich history covering a time when the region was inhabited by indigenous hunter gatherers and pastoralists followed by trekker farmers and later the introduction of commerce and industrial change.

Owing to its situation in the Breede River Valley the Worcester Museum is a cultural history museum with a strong focus on agriculture.

Here are some photo’s taken on our visit.
