    Great post. I especially like the first shot with the “brother” looking up out of the bushes. I didn’t know a group was called a journey. Good information. Your tree from yesterdays post was fascinating. I wouldn’t want to have to climb that one 🙂

    People in Port Elizabeth are often blind to what we have on our doorstep. Us bloggers try to do our bit to promote local attractions. Good post Jonker.
