Happy Freedom Day, my beloved country.

On 27 April 2014 we celebrated 20 years of freedom in South Africa and although I was home in my little town, I nevertheless made use of the opportunity (and the gorgeous, sunny day!) to go out and get some snaps in remembrance and gratitude of those who came before me. May we never take our freedom for granted.

Alrighty, now onto the fun stuff…

I didn’t have to travel far to get the following great snaps at a little wine boutique and restaurant in Ashton called Platform 62. Its gorgeous and offers an array of delish foods, dried fruits, wines and a variety of homemade jams and rusks from all over the area.

I loved this clock that was on sale.

Freedom day1

The old locomotive is a landmark in Ashton and situated right next to Platform 62. Of course I couldn’t miss the opportunity to get a snap of this beautiful beast.

Freedom day18

Next I drove through the Cogmanskloof mountains on route to Montagu and I simply couldn’t help myself. I had to stop to get a few pics of the lovely Cogmanskloof mountains. Isn’t it just breathtakingly beautiful?

Freedom day16

Love, love, looove this pic! At the very top, if you look very closely you’ll see the Old English Fort which is where the British soldiers hid during war time. It has little holes all around that was just big enough to fit through their guns as they were shooting at their enemies at the bottom.

Freedom day15

More mountain magic. How beautiful!

Freedom day17

This is the final pic, sadly. I was on my way back home and I simply had to take a picture of the gorgeous blue sky. And it worked beautifully! Wowie! Absolutely stunning!

I am so very fortunate to see these views at any given moment. So, so gorgeous.

Till next time…
