Journey Through South Africa

Time to start posting on this blog!
I was in South Africa during the first half of May and so here is a peek into my South Africa nature encounters.
These photos are from a hike near Cape Town, South Africa. We hiked just east of Cape Town, in Stellenbosch. It was a lovely 5 hour circuit that we traveled in the afternoon on Mother’s Day, May 12th, 2019.
