After the weather events that took place in the Western
Today is a public holiday and a grey rainy day here in the Cape. Last weekend’s trip was a disater with the 4×4 breaking down before we got to the toll tunnel to get out of the Cape. With my mind still set on getting away, I got into the old car and just headed off towards Villiersdorp area hoping to see some water flow. That I certainly found. Here is a series of pics from the day trip.
A river in Banhoek Stellenbosch.
The Franshoek Villiersdorp pass had hundreds of streams running down the mountain onto the road. This is a drive-by picture.
A river rushing off towards the Theewaterskloof dam in the background.
Tree lined foaming stream comming from the mountains.
Brown water river.
A few low water crossings along the way.
No need for a 4×4 to experience the thrill of driving a sloshy road.
Another low water causeway.
Rivulet in the veld.
Final pic for the day is the upper reaches of the Botrivier.
