I just got back from the most incredible trip to South Africa, and I will now proceed to talk about it until you beg for mercy or book your own trip there, whichever comes first.
No, I will dole out the delights of South Africa to you at a steady pace…looking at this year it seems that monthly is my general dosage. Let’s just say that if that is the case we will still be talking about my trip in 2018. So let’s get cracking!
For this Friday which looks rather rainy from my window and, for me, contains one kidlet who is ill and one who is learning to use the toilet (just in case I had the delusional thought that I could hang onto the “holiday” feeling a bit), let’s not exert ourselves. Some photos will suffice:
These photos above are from the stunning Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens in Cape Town. Despite the huge expanse of lawns, flower beds, and woods there, I found myself caught up in the tiny details: the fuzzy hairs on a leaf, the ominous spikes on a stem, paper-like bark, and small touches of colour.
While waiting for over 3 hours in a beautiful, but remote spot near the tip of Africa for a new (i.e. functioning) rental car , I took these photos which tell me a few things:
- I was bored.
- I need new jeans.
- Thank goodness for iPads.
- The sun at that angle does NO favours to the girth of my thigh.
Finally, here are some brilliantly lit jellyfish to help you float effortlessly into your weekend, my friends.
There! See, we’ve already covered 0.2% of my trip! Easy peasy.
