In April this year, I was fortunate to go for a short holiday with friends to Nature’s Valley, Western Cape. Situated along the scenic Garden Route, this little village is a beauty to stumble upon with stunning views of the Indian Ocean in the forefront and the Tsitsikamma Mountains forming the backdrop.
As I previously mentioned, being out in nature is one of the ways I experience God. I get a strong sense of His majesty and presence as I look out at His wondrous creations.
During the course of our trip, we managed to visit Plettenberg Bay with it’s gorgeous beach, stunning architecture and lovely touristy things to do along the way. Speaking of which, we visited the Market On Main and stumbled upon a small t-shirt making stall. The owner, a tiny Chinese man who doesn’t really speak English but is very proficient in using his body language to explain himself & is super sweet while he’s at it, creates t-shirts out of pictures you take on his machine. We, of course, hopped onto that selfie t-shirts bandwagon and had a hilarious time creating our own memorabilia.
We also took a drive to Bloukrans Bridge where many adventure junkies from across the globe take the plunge into the Bloukrans River valley. We chose to watch the bungy jumping and not take part. Taking part was definitely not on the cards for us.
Here are a few visuals of a place that left me so inspired. I hope it will inspire you too.
