I found Pretty on a Road trip with my teenage daughter ...

My daughter and I found pretty on a recent road trip during the school holidays. Here are some snapshots ....


















As it was our intention to have a relaxing peaceful trip, its appropriate to start with the Peace Pagoda .... situated near Barrydale, the Peace Pagoda was built during 2000























.....in Sedgefield from a magnificent lookout point where the paragliders were jumping.

A nice link to the gardenroute is here














Perhaps next time we'll have acquired a little vintage car like this one we saw in Sedgefield ...

Map of Africa is an amazing viewpoint where the landscape looks amazingly like the map of Africa.

A link to this area called Garden Route Knysna










We meandered to the Kleinkaroo to an area called the Opsoekvallei.

On my brother's farm it was good to get in touch with the simple yet essential things in life ....

(a good place to stay would be the new Backpackers just otherside the riverbed ... called Route 62
Backpackers ....)















... we found beauty in this old tractor, now in retirement ....













... and the rural surroundings and endless spaces renewed our spirits ....













... collecting reeds near the river ... a first for this teenage girl ... 'what you wanna do with them Mom?' .... ... 'wait and see, child ... wait and see ;) ' ....










Beauty in an old rusted bath ... I think bathing under this bit of the universe (in a clean bath though) would be quite something ....












... we left beauty behind when leaving a message for a Dad / Grandfather on a stone at Robberg, Plettenberg Bay ...














..... we stopped for a breather high above Barrydale on Route 62 ....where we breathed in 'pretty' before leaving reluctantly ...
