That is really something to see Steve, yowza ! 馃榾

You, or I almost get a feeling of vertigo looking at this amazing
picture, or pictures rather. 馃槷馃槉 Between the sheer size, and
scope, and the angle of the slope it is breathtaking. Plus we can
see that there is actually a road within the mountain as well. 馃槻

Boy oh boy, and that must be unbelievably cool to drive on. I
mean one would really have to remember to keep their eyes on
the road, which would seem difficult with those surroundings. 馃槈

Incredible stuff sir, wow, thank you !!!

Holy cowza sir, the pictures are like a dream, or something from a
dream actually ! o_O:D It certainly looks like an amazing place to
have lunch. Or do anything else come to think of it ! (y)(y) I mean
honestly just walking around would be, or must be extraordinary
to do. Because you have the vineyard, but then the entire patadise
which surrounds in the those epic mountains. Wow, just wow ! 馃槷
And then you get go evidently have some wonderful food, and of
course wine?! ..Well that鈥檚 some kind of day.

Now Steve, may I ask? Are you, or were you just there? 馃槻 ..Are
these pictures yours? Or are you just posting some beautiful pics
of the area? ..In any case, it is terrific seeing all of this ! ..Thanks
a bunch for sharing this with all of us !!!

Thanks Tom. As wine lovers we spend a fair bit of time enjoying the winelands which consist of around six wine growing regions in and within an hours drive from CT, each with their own unique beauty, terroir and wines.

We also have a small wine tasting group that meets at least once per quarter and enjoys tastings at different wine cellars and members' homes 馃嵎

Don't mention it Steve, and all the thanks goes to YOU for making
us feel like we're part of the group ! :) ..I can imagine that a day
there really has to fly by. 馃榾

Or at any of the locations there honestly. 馃槑

Wow, just wow Steve, that is gorgeous ! o_O:D

It鈥檚 amazing all the different landscapes you have there to tell
you the truth. ..I mean you have these incredible mountains, but
then the areas around them are totally different in the pictures. 馃榾
You鈥檒l see all of these colorful plants, along with flowers in one
pic. But then a whole new world from another shot, and the
one with the 鈥淏oomslang鈥 feels like it鈥檚 taking you right into
the Amazon. Or Jurassic Park-like world ! 馃

Until the last photo, you almost forget there are people there
to enjoy all of it. It鈥檚 got to be just terrific Steve to experience
all of this there in person as I always say sir. Because it鈥檚 great
just seeing this microcosm of everything there on this tiny little
screen here. ..Thank you very very much sir !!!

Well the last two are just fantastic Steve. (y)(y)

The one with the concert goers is great because you can almost feel
the energy of the crowd. And that one with the Boomslang going off
into the forest, along with mountains is epic ! 鉀

Oh boy, you are getting me into the holiday spirit big time Steve ! 鉁

What鈥檚 amazing is that that鈥檚 just from seeing the pictures here,
so I can imagine it must be really outstanding in person there sir. 馃槻
And it鈥檚 the mood of the people I think that matches the beauty of
the lights, displays, as well as wonderful decorations which makes
things extra special imho. 馃槈You can almost feel their happiness,
as well as spirit really. And it鈥檚 fantastic to see, especially after so
many of these important celebrations were put by the wayside in
the last couple of years.

Honestly is THE best to see, as well as hear about Steve ! ..What鈥檚
nice too, is that even though we are in different parts of the world
we can actually celebrate together. It鈥檚 pretty wonderful, and so
were these pictures. ..Thanks so very very much !!!

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Holidays, as well as
a Happy New Year ahead of time ! 馃専馃帀

Inspired by Frans' photographs of Rotterdam, I thought I'd introduce & share a bit of Cape Town with you.
Whether or not you've been to Cape Town, I hope you enjoy this short pictorial. Most of the photographs are mine while some are borrowed from the net.


Situated on the southern tip of Africa and nestled in the shadow of Table Mountain (now one of the 7 wonders of the world) you'll find beautiful Cape Town, a cosmopolitan city and home to around 4 million.
You are very fortunate to live in such a beautiful location.

Now that's what I call a beautiful bay Steve ! o_O:D Holy cow, it's unreal
to tell you the truth and more like a dreamscape or even paintings of some
other world. 鉁↖ mean the hypnotic sky alone looks as if it was dreamt up
by some artist, or painted by a painter. 馃憖The colors and the way they
are layered in both of the pictures is off the charts awesome. While the
view of the mountains, surrounding landscape, along with water is just
astounding ! And I am just noticing that there are actually homes which
are intermingled throughout too, wow ! 馃槷

I am imaging having that type of view Steve. ..I would want to literally
spend every second exploring the beach as well as hiking into those
mountains there. ..Some epic stuff as always my friend. Thanks very
very much for inviting us into your world !!!
