A weekend in images

Back in Dullstroom, and more warm weather!  I don’t know the place in all its balmy sunshine and t-shirts and shorts!
It was a deliciously lazy weekend with old friends and midday naps and tears induced by Cards Against Humanity. The sweet resident farm dog (renamed ‘Sally’ by our crew) joined us for most of the time, exuberant and grinning from ear to ear on river jaunts.
Time moves a little slower out of the city (and when there’s no wifi or cellphone reception!), and I was able to fully enjoy the heady scent of pine needles, the squawk of guinea fowl and the background babble of the Crocodile River.  I sat for a while with my feet in the cold water and watched the frothy river run over my skin, and in that moment I felt a little lighter and a little more connected to the flow of life.
There are also some resident fallow deer on the farm.  When I first saw them and there gorgeous antlers, I did a serious double take … it’s like I’d stepped through a doorway into the English countryside!

A weekend away in the Berg

Another long weekend in South Africa meant a weekend away in the northern Drakensberg.  Dry and cold and a million shades of brown, but always beautiful.

Loving Dullstroom

A very lazy weekend spent in Dullstroom, on a lovely farm filled with dams, a river, some hills, a forest or two, and buck, jackals, otters and aardvark (not to mention family).  So nice!  I managed to yoga, walk, eat, sleep and read.  PERFECT.

Here are some shots of the very wintery landscape (and classic highveld winter sky).  Awful, I know. 😉
