Today's post isn't one of a well known or even public spot, but I do want to show you the expanse of the Karoo in the Jansenville / Darlington Dam district. A couple months ago we spent a weekend with our church cell group on the farm Wortekuil of Willie de Wet. Willie farms with … Continue reading The view from Dam se kop
How about a little roadtrip around PE? Start on the beachfront and follow Marine Drive along the Wildside to Schoenmakerskop, around to Sardinia Bay and then onto the Seaview Road to Seaview, Beachview and Maitland (perhaps as far as the Van Stadens Wildflower Reserve), before returning along Kragga Kamma Road to Port Elizabeth. This is … Continue reading The road past Beachview
Yesterday I posted a picture of the view looking north from the Campanile observation floor. It means I have three more directions and what's the use of showing you only one? So here is the view to the west. The Settlers Freeway is at the bottom and slightly to the left of the centre of the picture is … Continue reading Campanile view – Looking west towards Central
There are four viewing windows at the top of the Campanile. The new full-length viewing window looks out to the east over the Port Elizabeth Harbour. The view south is towards the beachfront, west across the city centre towards the Donkin Reserve and then north along the Settlers Freeway. Looking at the picture the Settlers Freeway … Continue reading Campanile view – Looking north along the Settlers Freeway
This morning I joined a couple of colleagues for breakfast at Angelo's on the beachfront to celebrate one of their birthdays. Sitting there watching a couple of dolphins pass by we all just realised again how privileged we are living in this beautiful coastal city where we can sit and have a meal with a … Continue reading Breakfast views on the beachfront
I went for a walk on the hillside above Kamma Heights yesterday in search of a Geocache and some alone time and this is the view that greeted me from the cache location.
My three favorite flowers in the wild are aloes, proteas and arum lilies. The aloes are in full bloom at the moment and gives colour to the winter landscape. A hike along the Aloe Trail at Bluewater Bay took as to this spot from where we could see Amsterdamhoek and the Swartkops River mouth with flowering … Continue reading Aloe view of Swartkops River mouth
Standing at the same spot as yesterday's post from where I took the picture of the Cotswold (Moregrove) Quarry but looking the other way, the N2 snakes away from the suburbs towards Algoa Bay. The N2 is the main road from Cape Town along the Garden Route, through Port Elizabeth and up along the east coast past Durban.
A little while ago I posted a pic taken from Humble Ways at the top of Lovemore Heights looking south. I've been holding back on the north view and is posting it today. It wasn't a clear day but you can see the Westering and Kabega Park area with the Telkom tower on the right.
A Geocaching outing took me to yet another new spot in Port Elizabeth the other day. Humble Ways Retreat is situated at the end of St Clair's Way on Lovemore Heights and owned by the Stucken family. There were three caches hidden on the property so I took Chaos Boy on a nice leisurely stroll … Continue reading Humble Ways south view
