random things I like

Sumé is my friend's, Santie's, grandchild.





We love to do things as a family!

See the soft glow of earth-shine on the night-time side of the waxing crescent moon. (Earth-shine is sunlight that’s reflected from the Earth and back to the moon.)
A morning with friends at Living Life Station Café (Ladybrand).
An authentic farm style restaurant-café smiles inside a once forgotten South African Railway shed.
A quick stop at The Cabin farm stall which is found 5km from Clocolan, our neighbouring town.




PRECIOUS photo to me. My mother, who is "an angel" on earth..., and my daughter, Nina.

adrenaline adventure!

"white river rafting"
on the phang nga river in thailand...

on henk's side of the family.


full of excitement 
- in boat number 4 -
was Henk
(from the front, 3rd one on the left-hand side)


 i was in boat number 2,
the one who looked afraid...
very afraid!

 after the first fear-stricken rapid
i realized i'm going to survive,
from then on...
it was heaps of fun!!!

matric farewell

casper is now in matric
(matric = grade 12 = final year of school)

their matric farewell
 was held on friday, the 8th of oct.,
and it was ohh só-ó beautiful!


casper had a good laugh at henk,
becauce henk tried to look
like the *mafia boss' desicnated driver*
(photo below)

his partner for the evening was johané


she is a soft, radiant girl
with a inner beauty

they had a most enjoyable evening


the theme was "vintage'...
we had a sneak preview.
the grade 11's did a STUNNING!! job
of decorating the venue


casper and his friends
was seated at tabel 18

the dance floor was decorated
like a vineyard.

~  super special!!  ~

the walls
were covered with murals...
WOW!!!
i think it felt like a "wunderland"....

what do you remember most
from your schooldays and/or matric farewell?
