Victorian

Within the Western Cape, South Africa it’s especially known that the town of Montagu has many Victorian houses. I lived in the area for 11 years but must admit that nearby Robertson has  more Victorian architecture. The ‘Strachan’ house is a good example but such a pity that the local municipality installed a huge light tower (left in picture the reinforcement cable) in front of this monument which makes it difficult to make the right photograph. VictorianRobertson

There is no difference in the water….

Took this picture last Sunday at the Southern Most Tip of the African Continent. Except for this monument and a beautiful lighthouse (see one of the previous postings) there is not much to see in Cape Agulhas. But for hikers … well, that’s different; an 5.5 km stroll in a nature reserve!
