We all have these photos … throwback photos!
It’s described as ‘nostalgia-inducing pictures … from a different era of your life”.
Every Thursday we will throw a photo of ‘way back when’ on our blog. Why on a Thursday? Because it’s just a day away from the weekend … and we love weekends!
You are welcome to join in or just enjoy the photo (#TB Thursday).
Maskam (mountain), Vanrhynsdorp South Africa
Back in October 2005, my brother and his wife visited us from the UK and together we travelled to my parents in Vanrhynsdorp (Western Cape Province) for a weekend.
We had so much fun together and on the Saturday, we went for a drive to enjoy the vast plains of this area. The mountain in this photo is called the Maskam, a well-known landmark in the Vanrhynsdorp area with an almost similar flat appearance to the world-famous Table Mountain in Cape Town. The Maskam forms part of the Matzikamma mountain range. Matzikamma means the ‘mountains that yield water’ and it is not unusual to travel in this mountain range in rain and thick mist.
While driving on the back roads of the small town Vanrhynsdorp, we stopped to walk around in the field. It was then that we noticed this derelict farmhouse with the Maskam as the perfect background.
