I am on holiday for a week so that makes the whole Tim Holtz surprise even better. Let me show you what I have been up to.
We have since returned to the Berg, it is going into winter here so the days are brilliantly clear. The sky goes a cerulean blue and the contrast of the mountains against it is jaw droppingly beautiful.
Yesterday we went to visit some friends who run the Graceland Bed and Breakfast in Champagne Valley and we all went down to the river on the property. I love how everything here is completely untouched by people. Its been ages since I went down to a river bottom and not seen the river bank strewn with litter. Little Maya, who is the most adorable, feisty, little 2 year old daughter of Ruth and Barrett whom we went down the hill with - stripped off and promptly declared "Me jump"! Which meant she wanted to swim in the river. Brave little girl that she is, she jumped right into the freezing water and splashed around til she declared "Me cold" and "Me towel".
Right now in the Berg is the Drakensberg Boys Choir School's annual Music in the Berg. I am wanting to go, but the chairman, who is an DBC Alumnus is not interested....maybe I can convince him to....will keep you posted.
