Plettenberg Bay has had a very traumatic time as has so many other places along the coast. These are some of Plett`s darkest hours.

The aftermath of these fires have left many homeless as many farms and gated communities have lost everything.

Some farms due mainly to volunteer firemen have managed to keep their houses.

On a lighter note a few weeks ago we had a double rainbow, but i couldn`t find the pot of Gold.

The Cape Fur Seal colony on Robberg peninsular are still thriving as though nothing has happened.

And the Sun still rises……….

I wish to thank all the fire fighters,emergency crews,paramedics and distributors of aid for their great effort during these dark times.

I haven`t done much blogging for a few months so this one will be a bit long. Have you ever tried to revive an old blog that`s on another site, I have and it can be very disappointing when the forbidden notice comes up on the screen. forbiden

This came up on iblog which is not a problem as it hasn`t been updated since 2012. iblog2

This unfortunately was taken with a bad cell phone and is out of focus. The pictures at the bottom used to be changed every day to show who were the top favorites.

Trying to grow my big Sea Bean didn`t work out very well as I over watered it in a heavy soil and it went black. I think I should have grown it like the Avacado Pear pips on the window ledge.

I still enjoy watching the sunrise every morning with my first coffee and cigarette. then at night time there is always the Sunset, if I remember.

Life is still amusing especially when you see things like this. Why are these men shoveling gravel into a front loader? Maybe someone didn`t read the instruction manual for the front loader.

This Autogiro is quite strange as it was built from a kit. It has a pusher prop at the back and the rotor spins as it moves forward to give it lift. I see it quite often down near the beach but it landed one day at the Airport near the farm. I don`t think they travel very fast as the helicopters leave it well behind.

These Pansy Shells used to be found in abundance on the Plettenberg Bay beaches many years ago but I haven`t seen one there in the last five years. When I first started detecting on the beaches people said maybe I would find some shells there but so far they have been allusive.

If you think that it never snows in South African towns just look at this photo taken a few years ago. This is only about 200 meters from the sea. Even the beach had snow on it.

This was my brothers back garden in the UK the same year, as you can see the snow was a lot deeper there even 6 months later.

For people who like memorial foot paths, this was inlaid into the pavement near Buckingham Palace. Very similar to the sidewalk near Hollywood in the USA but smaller.

Most of these money making schemes don`t have any place in my life as I just take it as black humour.

Although this one is free it still isn`t worth downloading. According to the write up beneath, you have to move 3 balls. I wonder if that has anything to do with `the Spear`.

This can still be found on the net.

This book has some of Zapiro`s cartoons but nothing we don`t already know.

Another book that just seems redundant as every one knows where the money went.

I`m seriously thinking of doing this with some of the drivers on the road now.

If you get that feeling that you want to shoot someone, get one of these.

Last night i was at the lookout when the sun started to go down. you can see the Robberg peninsular on the right.

This lookout is at the end of my road and hosts the New Year celebrations because the fireworks are set of on the beach bellow. It`s about a 3 km walk along the beach and is best done during the winter as there is no where to get out of the sun.
