Pig’s Snout Kloof – Stanford to Hermanus

Pig's Snout Kloof - Stanford to Hermanus
While driving from Stanford to Hermanus friends pointed out Pig's Snout Kloof - a formation that I'd actually never heard of previously.

Can you see the pig lying down, with the front of it's snout facing the camera? Do you see it's two eyes? If you click on the image to enlarge you'll perhaps even be able to make out the two waterfalls, one running from each nostril. Kinda gross, but there you have it. :)

Here's a map, with Google StreetView showing the location, and an extra photo, zoomed out a little.

Chicklets ‘n chickens

Chicklets 'n chickens
We recently spent some time with friends in the little town of Stanford. One of our outings was to the Klein Rivier Cheese Factory, just a kilometer or two outside of the town itself. We found these liddl' ones hustling about on the lawn - cute heh?

The farm itself has a small shop that sells cheese and other nibbly bits. Right next door is the farm's restaurant that serves an assortment of treats, including picnic baskets for two, filled with cheeses, meats, breads and wine. If you're in the area, it's certainly worth stopping in for lunch.
