Update

I’ve got some bleeding on my knee which has meant further tests and prodding in hospital today. I’m doing all I can to get myself sorted as soon as possible, but in the meantime it’s painful and debilitating.

So here’s something to just fill some space today.

Monochromatic barns from Caledon, taken about this time last year, before all this nonsense began.

Fingers crossed for a big improvement tomorrow.

Quota Hout Bay

Hout Bay. Not my favourite place. An over-rated, smelly tinder box. I could go on, but I’ll get myself into trouble. I may have already done that.

Still. Nice harbour. From on high, at least.

I wanted to do some flying today – mainly to try out the new modes on the Mavic – but there’s cricket on the school fields and it looks like the new modes probably require the sort of space that my back garden doesn’t have.

Oh, and quota photo today because I’m busy trying to work out how best to get Premiere Pro CC 2018 without spending an absolute fortune, and it’s braai tyd this afternoon and there may be beer involved. Safety first, then.

Tern up

I’m tired. I mean really tired.

So please just enjoy this image of some terns I took at Rasper Punt in the Agulhas National Park this morning and I’ll explain the rest tomorrow.

Extra marks and possible bonus points will be awarded for anyone who can identify the terns in the photo. But if you’re struggling a bit, don’t worry – so am I.

Just an image

You’ve had almost 1000 words over the last couple of days, on subjects as diverse as a local sign and a local sign. Thank goodness Thursday’s post wasn’t also about a local sign. That would show a distinct lack of imagination on my part.

Awkward.

Anyway, it’s trying my keyboard and probably your patience, too.
So here’s something shorter and less signeseque.

It’s a different view of Beau Constantia, Constantia Glen and across the Cape Flats from several (or more) metres above Constantia Nek. See it better presented here.

We had a great time at Constantia Glen last weekend, with good friends, good views and superb wine.
The rest of the weekend was fun too – here are the photos.

Still. Could be worse.

As in, this view is still. And it could be much, much worse.

Incoming from Mr A Contact. This gorgeous image of Ladybower Reservoir, just down the road from the family pile in Sheffield.

Gorgeous. A hint of frost on the fields in the (?)early morning sunlight. And that mirror in the middle is the water supply for Sheffield, Derby and Nottingham. It’s not quite “Antarctic Ice Shelf” pure, but it honestly can’t be far off.

Ja. Cape Town may be beautiful, but my home turf certainly has its moments too.

Thank you, Mr A Contact
