Trip along the coast

I left Johannesburg on a flight to Cape Town on a clear and hot day to visit my mother who lives in Hermanus. As we flew over the arrid regions of the Karoo landscape, I could not help but compare the overcrowded city of Johannesburg to the unspoilt areas I was viewing from so high up. It was al greys and blacks ,with here and there a green piece of land around a farm house. Also I could see rivers crawling like snakes around the mountains.
When we started descending towards Cape Town, we flew over the beautiful wineyards on the outskirts of Worcester, all of it green between the scarred and burnt out grasses and trees on the mountains
After landing at Cape Town Airport, I took a car and started on my journey to Hermanus. Driving along the coast, I passed beautiful little villages nestling along the white and unspoiled beaches. Driving up the mountain through the Sir Lowreys Pass, I looked back towards Cape Town and was astounded by the beauty of the view over the sea and sand towards the mountains surrounding Cape Town.
Driving through the country side with vineyards on the one side and apple trees on the other side, I could not help but think I am living in the most beautiful country in the world!
All I want to do is inviting all the world to visit South Africa, and see all the beauty of this country.

Yes indeed it sure is pretty. Lived in Robertson until 2002 and then moved to Durban. I was a little uncertain about the move to the small town of Calitzdorp where my friend lives. I was thinking right this minute, about the anticipated move, and lo and behold, here the Universe, (God), tells me on Wikinut where I spend most of my time, how picture perfect it all is! Just the way this message was sent to me gives me goosebumps. Thank you Magda Kruger. Ek gaan niks verder twyfel nie:-))
