Underneath the bridge
A couple of years ago I got to walk underneath the Van Stadens Bridge for the first time while following one of the trails in the Van Stadens Wildflower Reserve in search of a Geocache.

Van Stadens King Protea
The Van Stadens Wildflower Reserve must be one of the best places around to see Proteas and other Fynbos species growing in the wild. Not just is it great to view wild flowers, but the reserve also has a number of excellent trails for you to go and stretch you legs along. The trails range … Continue reading Van Stadens King Protea
Early morning at Crossways
We went out to Crossways Country Kitchen for coffee with friends this morning but I probably spent more time walking around outside on a crisp winters morning than inside. And when it looked like this outside, how couldn't I?
