We also had some nice rain in Vioolsdrif. Not sure how many mm as our rain meter is not working right. These were taken at the border post.

Beautiful!! :thumbup:
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

Life is like a jar of Jalapeño peppers ... what you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow.

Don't take life too seriously ..... no-one gets out alive.
It's not about waiting for storms to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
And be yourself ..... everyone else is taken!

Yes Jaco, it is just before our store. I work up in the workshop so I may have met you when you were here. When are you coming to visit again? Will make sure I meet you next time. My wife works in the office, her name is Iona, maybe you met her.

Had a new day "in the office" on Tuesday....

Bellville to Robertson, then a quick stop in Ashton, back to Bellville with a last minute detour via Stellenbosch.


NICE day after the hot weather. Twice had to use the wipers, and every so often got a few big drops of water on the windscreen



sad to see the damage to the wineyards by the last fires ! Couple of wineyards started burning, but thankfully it seems that most got stopped quick enough.
