Where do you go to?

Last week I told everyone I was going to the Cedarberg, well I got it wrong. We spent a relaxing weekend at De Hoop nature reserve.

This place is heaven. You can't use your cell phone - "Emergency calls only". No 3G or HSDPA - absolutely nothing. You just have birds, animals and nature's calls to entertain you.

We went on 3 hikes, and I took so many photos I felt like a kid in a candy shop! I wish I could share them all with you.

The 8km hike along the coast line was spectacular. There are caves and rock formations you could write a novel on. Each time you think you've seen the best, you come across another 5 even better ones!

Here are some pictures which I hope inspire you to get out there and have a real holiday.

Kate - this place truly is heaven. It is very remote, no shops, no phones - Like you say - Heaven!

I couldn't agree with you more - everyone needs a REAL holiday once a year (or more!). We just spent a week in the French Alps in a chalet with no TV and no internet. But of a shock to the system at first, but you get used to it pretty fast and end up playign with the cute kittens that live there and walking in the *spectacular* mountains. I've got some pictures up over at my blog if you're interested.

Jeanne - I saw your pictures and am very jealous! I love the fact that everyone was "tech free" for a whole weekend!

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
C.S. Lewis
