Before I move on to life back in the US and more portraits of my impossibly cute and talented grandchildren, here are a few more random slices of  the Western Cape area of South Africa.  What a beautiful country it is.  I find myself straddling two lives, my life there with beauty and family, and my life here with the same.  If you ever get the chance to visit, or if you’ve been thinking about it and just feel like it is too far or too different, don’t hesitate – as Nike says, “Just do it”.
