Here is a map and some of the trails for 4X4 drivers and if you want to stay in a cave, there is accommodation. There is something rather appealing, living in a cave, maybe it`s like going back in time to the Stone Age 🙂

The 4X4 trail from the top of the Kloof.

For accommodation there are caves that have been converted to B&B`s.

The metal detecting got mostly military bullets from pre 1994, a couple of more recent ones were found so maybe the military still use this place for training although I never saw any.

The only bullet head that was found was only the size on the nail of my little finger and was a ricochet.

These are the rest of the military finds. The next sites will have to be from the Boer war if we can detect there. I find that now I am doing more geocaching because my youngest Daughter is more into that than metal detecting. the two actually go well together but i put my finds into a cache for those who don`t detect.

I am  still sorting out my computers and found that this will be my 455th blog on this username. Sorting out the old  emails on this computer was a bigger job than I first thought. I found that I had saved every email for the last few years, I`ve cut it down now to personal and comments and has cut them down by 80%. I`m starting this one with a sun rising up from the sea in animation.

This is not a very good example as it was done with a cell phone.

sea bean filed

I`m still waiting for the sea bean to sprout , I ground it down on the edges and put it in a pot with some good soil and have waited nearly a week.

Whilst metal detecting on the local beach i came across a small seal that had a very peculiar mark on it, what do you think did this.

the beach can be quite a good place to get unusual photos.

1) Sea Slug

2) The usual flotsom

3) Paw print

4) Volcano, usually White Mussel

5) Odd shapes like sand roses in the desert

6) One shoe on back to front

diving birds

Birds make quite good subjects to photograph, it just takes time. Gannets are quite good to watch as they come down fast and then fold their wings before hitting the water. From the height that they start the fall it`s surprising how small the splash is, they go quite deep and are very good fishers. I wish my fishing was so successful 🙂

Our Feral cat has taken up residence in the water bowl on the wall. Now there are two trains of thought on this, it either fits her body so she feels safe, or, she`s waiting for the birds to come for a drink. She used to wait in the nearby shrubs and wait for the birds, but never caught any as they were too quick.

After waiting for a while with no birds in sight she decides just to sleep there.

Going to Baviaanskloof was quite interesting as a site was found where the old SADF did their training before going into Angola. Some of the rounds are very corroded so have been there quite some time but show the two calibers used. Even live rounds were found as well as blanks. The blanks are unusual as they are made completely of brass in one piece. This is so the cycle properly on full auto. The ones found were for the older R1 rifle which dates back to the 60`s when it started out as the FN self loading rifle.

All cases found with metal detector.

This is the R1 blank the same as used in the FN rifle.

This appears to be a live round from the latter smaller bore R3, this is a basic copy of the AK 47 (AK74)

The sunset was not very colorful tonight, but you can`t win them all.
