I know I can go on a bit when it comes to my family farm in the Great Karoo, but I think these images taken by my darling friend Brenda Wardall of Hearts in a Shutter do it total justice. The above pic is of ‘The Big Dam’, finally completed by my grandfather Maurice Palmer sometime after the ostrich boom.This next one is of the Museum containing fossils and artefacts found on the farm over the years.
