A week or two ago I had to go on an urgent work-related road trip and popped into two of my favorite villages, Nieu-Bethesda and Hogsback, before heading down to East London for the night. It was literally whistle-stop visits with no sightseeing. All business. Barrelling along the N2 between King William’s Town and East London the sun was setting behind me and the best I could do was snap a pic in the car’s side mirror at a hundred and mumble mumble kilometers an hour.
A weekend or two ago I found myself spending a night at Mount Camdeboo Game Reserve outside Graaff-Reinet before an early morning meeting. What is spending time on a game reserve without a game drive so we headed out for a drive late afternoon. The road took us right into the mountains on the reserve and how can one not prefer this over the busy rush of city traffic?
Heading home after work this afternoon I just realised again how quickly winter is approaching. Other than the chill in the air the biggest indicator is the sun. In summer it goes down after 7:30pm but this time of year it heads to the horizon not long after five. So this afternoon I got to snap a pic with my new phone that I’ve wanted to take for years now. The sun behind the Fig Tree on the corner of Main Road Walmer and William Moffet just as the light turned green and the guy next to me moved enough not to block the tree.
