Creative Friday

Welcome to Creative Friday!
We have just returned home from an amazing holiday in a town called Clarens, situated in the Free State in South Africa. What a gorgeous place to visit! We hiked, went to look at rock art, browsed through antique stores, Erin and Caiden went down a zip line and even did some mountain biking. We loved every minute of it.
Here are some photos from our holiday.

The view from our bedroom window at dusk.

Ahh, the view from our bedroom, so wonderful, a perfect knitting spot. The mountains in the distance and the tall trees made me feel so happy. We have decided to return here soon, during the winter months…

The is a photo of the gorgeous sandstone home we stayed at called ‘The View’ it has the most magnificent garden, fruit trees laden with fruit and beautiful blossoming flowers everywhere…

I can see why they named this house ‘The View’…

We even discovered a pothole that has formed under a small waterfall…

Can you see the face on this rock?

Erin and Caiden went down a zipline!

This is the homestead at the Schaapplaats farm, we hiked here to see the San Rock Art paintings, they are over 600 years old and so beautiful.

A beautiful San rock art painting…

    Well, I am just flabbergasted by the photos of your vacation. STUNNING. I almost feel as though I’ve been on a vacation just by looking at them. Well, maybe like I should PLAN a vacation. THERE.

    Cool photos, I am so pleased to be back here for another year of exciting sharing, how neat it is to see the creative talent in the world.
    Sometimes ones thinks, if I share this people will copy my idea, but if one is willing to let it go out into the world, new opportunities arise.

    Love and light Marie

    Your pictures are amazing, it’s made me want to go to South Africa. I love hiking and photography so I think I’d love it there.

    I’m a little late joining the party, I’ve only just found your blog.
