Love local

We love local. We buy and eat as much as possible local (not everything is available in a small village). We love the local Golden Hours, the local art and craft and don’t forget Garfield; the local cat. And most of my pictures (landscapes, etc.) are local. See for yourself:

 

 

 

 

The Museum

One of the finest educational museums to visit in the Western Cape, South Africa is the one dedicated to the Portuguese explorer Bartolomeu Dias (sometimes written as Diaz) in Mossel Bay. The nice thing is the lack of coffee corners, restaurants and ‘Made in China’ souvenir shops but somewhere hidden within the museum is a shop with locally made crafts related to the museum and the town. Coffee and food outlets are plenty nearby.

In the centre of the museum is a big hall with in it a replica of the vessel the explorer discovered Mossel Bay in 1588. Most pictures in this photo-gallery show details of this vessel. Lots of ropes… But there is plenty more of curiosities to experience!
