Dear Reader, it’s not often that good news comes your way. But today I have some of the good stuff to pierce the doom and gloom of 21st century living. As you may remember from a previous post, yours truly and Mrs Chips went off in search of the world famous phenomenon in South Africa known by some as the Namaqualand Flowers.
We were on the road for about three weeks, covering just over 4500kms as you will see in the map below
This year… That’s 2013 if this happens to become part of your recommended reading for literary excellence sometime in the future [cackle]. If it has, you can be assured the average IQ of the planet has indeed plumbed new depths)….
Anyway, this year…. The rains were excellent – even disrupting our travels somewhat – and Namaqualand worked hard to put on an absolutely spectacular display. In the weeks to come, I shall be posting these travels as well as some images made in the area.
For some of the time, we camped in our trusty tent – with the temperature ranging from -6C (yes, you read that right – minus 6 degrees Celsius) to about 25C, rain, wind and sunshine. To provide a more varied experience we also availed ourselves of the accommodation offerings in some of the towns through which we travelled.
So subscribe to the blog and a very clever computer will email you whenever I update the blog…. Or simply stay chooned by visiting often.
