And the beat goes on … (2 pictures)

A trace of destruction is what’s left of a raging ‘veld’ fire between Stanford and Gansbaai in the Overberg, South Africa. Until so far the affected area has a surface that exceeds that of the city bowl of Cape Town PLUS Table Mountain…

Photo’s (this morning) of the smoke shot at a distance of about 10 kilometers.

And suddenly also locals believed in it ……

The pictured wall is that of Springfontein Eats in our village; the only restaurant in South Africa with a Michelin Star….

Interesting are the comments in the original posting.

Beauty in Stanford

It’s not easy to find people in a small village like Stanford who want to pose for a photo shoot. Especially the women are seemingly shy or ashamed of their looks… Whatever.

Bur Karunda, who hates to be photographed, said without any hesitation “Yes”. She’s a natural talent and we’re pretty sure that if she wants to she’ll become a top model. Karunda is talented, intelligent and has a mind of her own. She’s also eager to learn.

Here a few images of Karunda during her first photo shoot.

September flowers in our garden

One of the advantages of living in Stanford, South Africa is that we can achieve a yearround floral display in our garden. Here are some pictures shot during the past two weeks. Enjoy!
