Weekend Greetings from the King of the Overberg

The Cape Floral Kingdom …

… is the largest flowers how of its kind in South Africa and every year in the Expo Hall in Bredasdorp. This town is one of the main agri/horti-cultural hubs in the country. The exhibition started last Thursday and will last until this Sunday 21 August. Opening times 9 AM to 4 PM. Admission: R 100.00 pp.

Hopefully the organisers change the present lightbulbs with daylight bulbs for the next edition….

An impression:

Napier Mountain

One of the numerous places off the beaten track in South Africa: Napier Mountain with its magnificent views that even on a hazy day (when the pictures were shot) reach 50 kilometer and further (with a 300mm lens). Imagine seeing 10,000 square kilometer below your toes while making a turn of 360 degrees. That includes the Southernmost tip of the African Continent and places like Elim, Struisbaai, Caledon and Arniston. And at the foothills in the valley is Napier. Another ‘attraction’ in the mountain is a walk to the Bat Cave. It’s a moderate hike but watch out for the bee swarms once you enter the cave.

Miracles with flowers

Every year volunteers organise a flower show in the Dutch Reformed church. This year the theme was miracles.
