Peek at the Windows & Doors at De Oude Huize

is not a substitute for action -
it is a prerequisite for informed action.

Don't hurry. Don't worry.
And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.

Most men pursue pleasure with such breathless haste
that they hurry past it.

A life rooted deeply lives and grows in memory.

For you cannot relive them.

  5. De Oude Huize is a Dutch expression, so I wonder if you have Dutch connections? One of our friends in Holland has a guest house like this one -so cute!

    1. Dear Jesh
      Yes it means old house. Our country was occupied by the Dutch in 1652 and there is a very strong influence. Our families that came to South Africa were French and Brittish.
      Would love to see your friend's guest house. If possible please forward a website address.
      Lots of love from Sunny South Africa
