Hogsback Holiday

In April we took a short holiday to Hogsback to commemorate our 40th wedding anniversary. What a change it was compared to our dry and barren karoo. It is a wonderful jewel of forests and waterfalls and “fairies” ! It inspired these 2 forest scenes, and even a little Samango monkey sketch.  We saw so many of them in the trees around Hogsback, and even in the village itself. We stayed at beautiful Nibelheim.  Hogsback is an extraordinary place!!
