Helderberg Forest Boutique Lodge ~ Part 1

The Helderberg Forest Boutique Lodge is managed by a former student of my husband, Ray and was our home for three wonderful nights. We were super impressed by Glen’s generosity and kindness. Our stay at the Lodge was a wonderful experience and the staff were always smiling and helpful. Why don’t you have a look at the Lodge’s official website.

Cape Visit 2014 ~ A Drive to Fisherhaven…and back ~ part 2

The next ten images are my favourite ones of the drive back from Fisherhaven. Let me tell you it was hard to choose! I took many photos, because at every turn we made along Clarence Drive there was a beautiful sight to behold! I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed taking them 🙂

Don’t forget to have a look at Ray’s beautiful photos on http://www.rayscam.com/

Cape Visit 2014 ~ A Drive to Fisherhaven…and back.

We took a drive to Fisherhaven on Ray’s grand daughter’s birthday for some family fun. From where we were staying (in the Strand) it is about an hour’s drive. But when you are a photographer, it takes about 2 hours…or more! 😉 Enjoy these coastal images.
