Handy woman

Willemine J Lieuwes in Napier may be an oldie but her bird dens are new. Daily you can find Willemine in her workshop with saw, hammer and what more. Last week she made some bird dens for pigeons. Her bird dens are featured at Greta’s Bookshop along the main road in Napier (towards Bredasdorp). Oh … and the photo at the top is one of the several trays she made for accommodations in the region.

The Shipwreck Museum

An ‘porthole’ impression of this morning’s visit to the Shipwreck Museum in Bredasdorp. It’s undoubtfully together with the Genadendal Mission Museum one of the better local museums in the Western Cape, South Africa. It’s not co-incidental that they both have the same curator in the person of Odette Weir from Bredasdorp. Worthwhile the visit!!!

 

Just what the Western Cape needed: a good soak

This morning between Stormsvlei and Swellendam. Picture shot from Bredasdorp; 50 km from the shower.
