The wineproducing area starts some 30km from Swellendam at Bonnievale. These photos are from that area. We had to go to Worcester some 140 km away yesterday for our son's cricket match against a school there so I was unable to vote or comment on most photos yesterday - only came back late Smile They won the match by 5 wickets and remain unbeaten since January 2012 !
Thanx for the kind votes and comments on my Jail image yesterday - and a special thanx to Pamela for the mod - a great improvement Smile
Have a wacky Wednesday !
