Sunset in the Western Cape


Several days ago we saw the most stunning sunset from our home. The first one shows a bit of our house with Samantha sitting in the forefront. We've never seen anything like it. Once the sun went down, however, the color was sucked right out of the sky rendering it void of color with only ominous grey tones in the strange undulating carpet of clouds. It was like a snow cone once all the bright syrup had been pulled out through the straw, leaving only the flavorless crushed ice behind.

We live in the Western Cape, in beautiful wine country. Since I don't have a new series of photos, other than these of this gorgeous sunset, I've chosen a few of my nicer wine region posts and added those links below under Related Posts.

RAEL's 10th Anniversary


Photos from 2015

Our family was recently invited to attend RAEL's 10th anniversary. RAEL stands for Recovering Addicts, Empowering Lives. My husband goes twice a week to teach from the Bible and encourage the guys there. I didn't have my camera with me at the event, so the photos were taken with my husband's phone. For this reason, I'm including pictures that I took in 2015 and then the ones that we took recently. P.S. The pig in the photo is not the one on the spit!

Cape Dutch Home in De Doorns


This Cape Dutch home in De Doorns in the Hex River Valley dates back to 1769. In the photo above, I'm standing next to Marion, the lady of the home. It was a real treat being given a tour. We were even served tea and homemade crepes in the courtyard near the kitchen. There were two ladies in the kitchen when we arrived. Besides making crepes, they were also making marmalade. It really felt like we were stepping back in time.

Marion has only recently moved into this manor house with her husband. All of their furniture and things from their previous home fit perfectly. Not only is the home beautiful, but it's also nestled between mountains and vineyards. I don't have any pics of the view, but I'm including three at the end from a previous time when we were in the area.

All the photos of the Cape Dutch home were taken either by me or my husband using his mobile phone. Unfortunately, I didn't have my trusty little Canon PowerShot with me with its wide-angle lens. It would have made all the difference.

Horse Riding on the Beach


In South Africa, our kids have summer vacation during the Christmas holidays. We often visit my in-laws at this time. They live at Britannia Bay on South Africa's west coast. During last December's visit, I took these photos of people riding horses on the beach. I love the horses' beauty as they kick up white sand or splash in the blue water. There's something wonderful about it. I've included links below of more Britannia Bay photos.
