outlying areas # 1

We went for a wonderful drive yesterday, along the Eland’s River Valley, round to the little farming village of Patensie. It is one of those “where do I start situations because we went BALLISTIC taking pictures, the scenery changed around every bend, and each view was worth several shots… ho hum. Anyway, in coming days we will post a few here, but if you like what you see and are interested in seeing more, we will have lots on our personal blogs in the near future. Thanks to Max’s new toy, a GPS (courtesy of one of the companies he consults for, a gift while he was sick) we will even be able to give co-ordinates, so you can see where all the views are on Google earth.


But for today, let’s whet your appetite with a view of the Cockcomb mountains, with the typical fynbos vegetation that covers that area.
