‘Weltevreden’ homestead

One of the few left original Cape Dutch farm homesteads in the Breede River Valley. Pity that the owning family (6 or 7 generations) has replaced the tatched roof with one of cheap maintenance free corrugated steel. ‘Weltevreden’ is Dutch/Afrikaans for ‘Content’.

Breakfast on the farm.

La Pintade …

… is French for Guinea-flowl. This one is a special (light colored) breed and we met her on a farm near Barrydale in the Western Cape, South Africa.
