Quilt With Us

A lot of my new friends asked questions about South Africa. We have a beautiful country and I would love to show you some of the wonderful places...

We visited one of the lesser known jewels of South Africa in December 2008. A beautiful village high in the mountains in the Eastern Cape. Hoggsback. If you want peace and quiet, this is the place for you. Only a small problem... to get there...

The road up there is really bad!

But once you are up there, it's paradise!

We stayed in a wonderful little house...

We loved the interior.

We laughed a lot...

Enjoyed the fresh mountain air...

Visited the most romantic chapel...

Leon in the maze!

Lanie, that was beautiful. Looks like you had such a nice time. The road doesn't look all that bad, and I do have a Jeep . . . . LOL

Amazing, thanks.
I really don't know much about Africa, where are you from - how far are you from Uganda?

Oh thank you for sharing the pictures. How wonderful to get to see a little of your beautiful surroundings!

thank you for sharing the pics... I've never seen anything from your area of the world until now, but it looks very similar to places we'd find over here (especially the road). You have a very lovely family.. the men are very good looking ( they probably wouldn't want to be called 'lovely') and the younger one looks like he's not adverse to playing a trick or two on you or his older brother lol. Again, thanks for sharing.

Lanie, thanks for sharing this little bit of your world, family and fun times with us. Was that cotton candy in the bag on the table? Funny how we think of Africa as some kind of back country eh? I guess I am very nieve. The scenery is gorgeous. Hope this is just the beginning of things you will share with us. I love it and would love to go for a visit. Know it will likely never happen but a nice thought eh? Love Psalm 104:24 - How great is the God we adore!

Gorgeous! Your family, the scenery and the cottage. What fun you must have had and the memories you made for the little men!
