This post is directed more at my overseas blogging friends than the local ones, but I am sure my upcountry blogging friends will enjoy this as well.
I follow Living Life Creatively, which is a blog created by a lady by the name of Bonnie. I do not know her personally, but came across her blog perchance in blogland. I paid her blog a visit today and was astounded at the beautiful photographs she has captured of one of our local villages, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch and thought I would direct you there, so that you can see more of my beautiful country. These 2 villages are based in the Western Cape near where I live. As my regulars will know, my daughter Kendall attended University in Stellenbosch, so it is very special to us and is about a 45 minute drive from where I live. A beautiful drive which has stunning vineyards for one to admire on either side of the long road.
Funny how when viewing pictures of villages in other countries, one thinks "oh, if only I could go there or live there". This was a real wake-up call for me... After viewing Bonnie's pics, I will no more have those thoughts, as I have the same beauty right on my doorstep. Methinks it's time for a Sunday afternoon drive again, to take in the beauty of my own country.
