We are for the while resident in Betty’s Bay, an unassuming quiet village on the Western Cape coast, an hour’s drive from Cape Town. With the beach a stone’s throw away, the sea is always near and on a windstill night the waves reach us in our sleep.
Colleen and I, Walter,
have been lecturers at Stellenbosch University for many years, are now retired and are filling our days with creative stuff – Colleen paints and Walter, apart from writing, has taken up photography. We have six children between us and eight grandchildren, living in South Africa, France, Germany and Spain.
Through our blogs we want to stay in touch with that family of ours and with our friends around the globe – letting them know what we are up to. But also, beyond, we want to share our experiences, thoughts, texts and images with other, like-minded curious souls. The subject matter remains varied – just as life throws us the ball. We love to entertain, to cook, to have people around; to travel, to photograph, to be lyrical at times, serious as well as light-hearted if not frivolous. It’s all about that cosmic stuff out there.
