The tip of Africa - (NaBloPoMo #16)

At the very tip of Africa, the Western Cape lies bordered by two oceans - the warm, balmy Indian Ocean to the east and the ferocious and frigid Atlantic to the west. The constant reassuring presence of the immense peaks which form the backdrop to a land so lovely that the emerald lakes and indigenous forests of the Wilderness area, the sun-drenched vineyards of the Cape Winelands, the magnificent passes to reach the interior and the sweeping, golden acres of the Boland, seem part of fantasy landscape that often defies description.

OH! I adore that painting so much, Tessa!!!

Thank you for your kind comments on my latest blog attempt. And for your wisdom!

I have long confessed to those closest to me that I would be a happy hermit. Despite my out-going personality and my love of performing, the REAL Jeanne is a quiet bookworm who is completely happy in her own little corner of the world.

Your inner mouse and my inner hermit! It's a good thing we have that Valentine Aquarian joie de vivre (did I spell that right?) working in our favor!

Thank you for your special friendship, and I so hope someday our paths cross in the "real world."
