Some photos from South Africa

En route to class in Cape Town, I got to spend 3 days at my parents' place, and 2 days with my sister Sanet.

Here are some shots from that week:

At the beach in Jeffreys Bay, where my parents live. It's just the start of Spring in the southern hemisphere, so it was still chilly at JBay.

When I landed in Cape Town, a storm was brewing. My sister, Sanet, lives on the coast, near this quaint town of Fishhoek. I was bummed that I hadn't brought my "real" camera along, but the little point-and-shoot digital didn't do too bad of a job capturing the atmosphere.

There were several Southern Right whales right off the coast--about 100 yards from the quay--playing in the water. It was amazing to watch them!

Sanet and I had a wonderful time visiting. Due to the fact that my class was on the other side of the city, I only stayed with her the night before class and the night after the last class. It was an unexpected treat to get to spend time at her place.

The view from Sanet's balcony. Amazing, isn't it! That's Simon's Town across the bay.

Class notes. Not mine. I am such a linear thinker and take ALL my notes on my computer. When classmate are far more creative in their note taking, it fascinates me! (This creation belongs to Martin, one of 14 South Africans who attended Theology of Work as a seminar. They're all meeting again soon to hear how everyone's applied what we learned.)

I didn't take any decent photos the weekend I got to spend at Liesl's home, nor at my friends' home where I stayed during class.

Liesl, Stefan (in the background) and Anja, at lunch on Sunday. I got to spend just a couple of days at their place and had to pack up my things that I had stored at their home. They've been offered a job in California, so their family will be moving next month.

Clara and Anja love that my computer can take really odd pictures.

Now I'm back in my place in Kipkaren.

I'm glad to be home. Flannel's glad I'm home, too.


  1. Thanks for sharing your S. African photos. I'm glad you were able to spend some time with family! :) Where will Liesl and Stefan be working??

  2. They'll be living in Davis, Northern California. She's been recruited as project manager for an SAP project. Exciting!
