Spectacular Namaqualand! These photos were taken in August of last year (2015) by Fred Hoffman of Cape Town. From what I have heard the flowers are equally amazing this year. Something I believe everyone should experience once in a lifetime at least.
Namaqualand is a “hard” place to live in most of the time due to the scarceness of water… My great-grandfather and -mother (on my father’s side), Appie Coetzee and his wife, Geesje Myburgh, both grew up in Namaqualand and Appie eventually also became a trekboer like his father. This is also where my grandfather grew up. I could listen to him telling about those years forever!
