In today’s post, we are taking you to Fairy land … whether you believe in fairies or not, this is a lovely place to visit.
In a previous post of last year (you can read about it here), we briefly mentioned Fairy and Pixie Village in Jacobs Bay. Recently though, I decided to treat my mom and her sister on a visit to Jacobs Bay’s famous fairy site … you’re never too old to admire fairies.
According to a website, Pixie Maritz grew up on a farm “Mpanza” in KwaZulu-Natal. As a young girl she would spent many hours in the forests and rivers looking for the mythical river fairies from traditional Zulu folklore. Throughout her life, she has been fascinated by the silent world of fairies and pixies. The farm has been incorporated into the Zulu Kingdom and there’s not much left of it today.
In the meantime, ‘Mama Pixie’ (as she is now known) moved to Jacobs Bay and created her own Fairy and Pixie Village … let’s have a stroll through her wonder world …
(In case you wonder about the “green shade” of the photo’s: The village is covered by a big green net which have an influence on the quality of the pictures … let’s say it’s “fairy dust” ☺️).
There are so much more to see here … there is literally a fairy or dwarf around every little corner. But for now, we will conclude with these two …
Once you’re outside the village, there are more little statues, like Grandma and Grandpa and their dog. There is also a small nursery with wonderful little plants, as well as lots of succulents on sale.
As we walked out of Fairy and Pixie Village, I noticed a sign for a labyrinth. That reminded me of the many labyrinths we walked on our Camino’s in Spain and Portugal.
What is a labyrinth?
It is from ancient origin, but is basically just a path laid out where you can walk slowly while quieting your mind. I normally use this time to think about everything I’m blessed with and at the end, I will say a thank you prayer (today I’m thankful to do this scenic trip with my mom and aunt).
After our visit to the Fairy and Pixie Village, I decided to treat my mom and aunt with something to drink at the pleasant little bay of Jacobs Bay.
We enjoyed our hot drinks in a sunny spot at the little bay and decided to take one last walk along the beach before returning back home.
It was a lovely morning with my mom and aunt. We enjoyed our visit to Fairy land (taking us back to our childhood), as well as the beauty of Jacobs Bay.
Before we got back in the car, we dusted off our clothes to make sure that all the fairies stayed in Jacobs Bay ☺️.
