Thanx for all the votes and kind comments on my previous upload.
I have been unable to access the internet and will be fairly busy as well as away for a few days but will pop in whenever I can to look at your amazing photos Smile
Have a great day. Today we will spend at an outdoor living Expo some 15km outside of Swellendam.
Have a great day !!
