This will be pictorially, with a minimum of picked-orally. First, a further shot of the Mandela silhouette, this time showing a wider angle to include the countryside and the Inhlosane peak not far from which is Old Camp, where I mentioned we lived for two years after Elder Daughter and fambly emigrated to UK and left it in our care:

    It must have been wonderful living there.
    I really like your photos, they remind me of Polaroids, Are you using a different camera?


  2. When you look up the word “bucolic” in the dictionary, these pictures surely pop up! Magnificent. You are fortunate to live in such a beautiful place. 🙂

    Great photographs. I must go to South Africa one of these days. The countryside looks stunning and greener than I imagined. Have a good weekend.

      It is a country of contrasts: deserts arid and semi-, coastal forests, plantations, green grasslands, and many grades in between. KZN Midlands tends to be similar to the UK in many ways.


  4. Cannas! You have cannas in SA!

    You managed to tug at my heart strings with all these pictures. Our family home was in Estcourt.

    The midlands is such a uniquely “colonial” part of the country, the names and scenery so reminiscent of England.


  7. Andrew says:

    I was also curious as to what makes for a “solid breakfast” in SA.
    Is it Brit-style with toast-racks and sausages, bacon & fried tomatoes etc?


  8. Lovely countryside, Col. What exactly is a solid breakfast? Hope it wasn’t too stiff porridge that you had to eat with knife and fork. 😀
