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.

I have done everything i can think of as far as sprouting the large Sea Bean. I tried soaking it in water, planting it in soil after grinding the rim, to no avail.

It feels quite soft now after all the soaking, because of this the shell can`t be cracked.

Finally I had to cut along the seam with a pen knife to open it up. I have now closed the shell and replanted it in a pot and will wait and see if anything happens.

I had to put todays sunrise in as there has been several requests. Unfortunately  I had to take this with a cheap Alcatel cellphone that hasn`t got the Mp`s of my other cameras.

This is a daylight view of the palm tree on the right of the sunrise photo. I seems to have started producing fruit or seeds of some sort. Can anyone identify the type of plant this is ?

These Orca don`t come into the bay very often, especially with their young. I have only seen them twice in 4 years  so it was quite an event.

The Dolphin feeding frenzy is really something to see close up from the boat.
