Our story in Sunny South Africa

This is a repost of a previous post.  
Trading the fast pace and bright lights of bustling city life for life in the slow lane is not an easy decision to make. The road may be longer towards Harrismith, but after finding our nest, we instantly know that we prefer the scenic route. Harrismith is an old historical town in the Eastern Free State, South Africa 
It is the second oldest building in Harrismith that has survived modern life
It was built in 1860 
We named it  . . . . . 

After alterations and renovations using old building materials De Oude Huize Yard as it is standing proudly 

Summer is a blessing but we also love winter 

The Platberg (Flat top mountain) and it's presence 

In 2009 we opened the doors of De Oude Huize Yard Bed and Breakfast 
I think it is appropriate to introduce you to the men in my life.

On the left is Gerald-Cecil the baby of our family but he stands 2 meters in his stocks
In the middle is Hennie and we got married in 1981 and he still loves to open all doors for me
A gentle man in an old fashioned way
On the right is Pedri 1984 - 2008 and we can only say thanks for walking the last mile
On 5 October 2013 Gerald-Cecil got married to Lesinda
A beautiful girl whom we love dearly 
Our two dogs Leonardo (Pyrenean Mountain Dog) and McLeod (Springer Spaniel)
And need we say more  . . . .  
Thanks for visiting. 

We make a life by what we get, but we make a living by what we give!  

Blessings to you all
