My trip to see the Flowers in Langebaan

Hello everyone! Guess where we went today!? You gotta believe it...

... to see the flowers in Langebaan. Jippeee!

The west coast of Southern Africa becomes a floral paradise towards the end of our South African winter. Doggies from all over the world come here for endless sniffing and playing.

There are so many flowers this time of year, we dont know where to sniff.

Boogie and I were not too sure where to start sniffing.

There are also lots of mousie holes around here...

eh... just a mo, I think I found something here.

Lets go to the water Boogie?

The Langebaan lagoon is declared a nature sanctury. Mom sez this is where she comes often during the windy summers. I look forward to coming back here then.

That seagul swims way faster than we thought :-(

"Not to worry, Normie. You will be able to chase many more in time to come, believe me"

After a long hard day of sniffing, swimming and playing, we eventually get back into the car and take the hour drive back to Cape Town.

So much action in one day justifies a nice long nap in the car on the way home.

What a day! I cant wait to come back here again. Please come visit me if you ever come this way.

Lots of wuv

That field of flowers looks like a lot of fun to run around in and sniff. Just be careful that you don't get a bee up your nose while sniffing.

Sharkie went for a run in the forest with Carlo who went Mountain biking with some friends.

Sharkie sez a Bee is a Chilly Bug. Im not sure why, but I will believe Shark for now...

These flowers grow totally wild for hundreds of kilometers along our west coast at a certain time of year. They are everywhere. There is not specific spot where they grow. From Cape Town all the way up the west coast as far as they eye can see. Its a spectacular sight. People come from all over the world to photograph it too.
