An Outing to 'Twee Riviere'

At the beginning of this month, we had a fun day outing to a place called 'Twee Riviere' (literally translated Two Rivers), where we visited the Bothas, who established the South African Institute for Conservation in this small town about 20 years ago. Located on campus is found The Belfry Kitchen, where we had a delicious lunch and heard the most interesting story of how this place has come to be.

I will say no more - go visit their website. 

Wise quote...

"Lekker gesellig".

Also on campus is an arboretum (a botanical garden devoted to trees), which in full autumn colors was a major reason for our visit. The trees were very beautiful, and I took plenty of pictures.

Stages of autumn.

Looking up...


Fantastic mushrooms. 

More leaves.


This red tree was my favorite.
