Some beautiful sights!

A stack of wine vats near the entrance to another farm. We visited the one next door.

Due to "Loadshedding", this simply means electrical power cuts leaving us all in blackness, I have had to slap this post together as quickly as possible and pray that we will not be cut off while uploading the pictures.
Join us on a quick walk.

Finally, to greet you with this beautiful poem:
"There is a goddess of Memory
Mnemosyne
but none of Forgetting
Yet there should be
as they are twin sisters
twin powers.
And walk on either side of us
disputing for sovereignty over us
and who we are, all the way
until death".
(Richard Holmes)

I found this poem in a bush on an engraved plate, and it is so true as Memory and Forgetting are indeed related and continue to plague us; whenever decision time arrives.

The visit here brought about a great peace to our souls, and we enjoyed the fresh mountain air, water and bird song...paradise!

Trust that you have enjoyed the photos.

Blessings!

Love this @papilloncharity :) The sweet butterflies, dragonflies truly breathtaking. Great shots today, have a wonderful weekend! Blessings to you and your family

Thank you for the kind comment Mrs.Bird.
May you guys also have a good weekend.
Blessings to you and yours!

hello good morning happy friday
The dragonfly is beautiful and good images.
but the tximeleta (butterfly) is beautiful for me very difficult to photograph are very fast

Ah! The Tximeleta, I remember well, but what do you call a Dragonfly?
May you and yours have a good weekend my friend.
Blessings!

Dragon flies definitely have a way with finding you wherever you wander Stephen.

Those doors are an impressive size, Buffalo sculptures very distinguishable at the right place, a watering hole.

Thanks for sharing this relaxing spot along with all the beauty.

Hahaha, I think that the drags have somehow installed a "Tracker" on me Lady Joan. Only joking, as where there is water there will be life.
Glad that you liked the post and for a change we went up today in the cable car of Table Mountain.
5 hour travel and queue wait, but it was so worth the wait.
Stone throwing and burning tires on the way back and bumper to bumper stop and start on the way back.
Only got home at 6:30pm and had to rush to get today's post in.
A real gamble as loadshedding at 8pm.
Switched everything off and waited until 9pm, but surprise, surprise, no loadshedding!
Tired but now at 10:27pm all done and dusted.
Blessings!

So glad you were able to get the pictures uploaded in time! Good job, they were beautiful!

Thank you so much for the kind words.
The power cuts certainly make things very difficult for us, but we do what we can.
Glad that you liked the post and I like the fact that you are a home schooling teacher. Maybe you should start a small private home teaching school with a few more kids Lol
Blessings!

Hahaha, thanks for the encouragement...but I don't know how that would go lol

Yeah, it's hard, but it's great that you are able to sort it out and still make things happen!

Well you said in your previous reply on your post that one has to adapt to the changes my friend and that is exactly what we are doing.
We have many small home schools over here that was started by parents that home schooled their children. The saying is that if you can teach two, then you can teach four, or six and make some money out of the deal by charging the extra kids school fees.
Blessings!

That's true!

Thanks for sharing your experience with us!

Such a wonderful discovery and place to explore!
I love the stone work and of course the beautiful carving on the table and sculptures!
Also to see the beauty in the small creatures which shines through to those who care to stop and take a closer look!
And one more treasure - that powerful poem engraved on the plaque!
Thanks for sharing!

Thank you and I was also touched by the truth in that post my friend.
The place is a veritable photographers paradise and we will be certain to go back there on a few more visits.
A nature lovers dream.
Blessings!

Amazing sir papilloncharity, what did you guys do there, was that a winery? Wonderful views and scenery!

Thank you Sir @janton and yes those wine vats was at the entrance to a wine farm, but we passed it to go to the sculpture farm that I posted about.
Blessings!

I would have to go visit both! lol.

Hahaha, we have a few hundred wine farms across the district Sir @janton and thus far I think we have visited only about 5.
They even have established wine routes for tourist buses that stop for tastings and eats at some of the farms.
Not for us though, as we like to do our own thing.
Blessings!
