An honest day's work
On Monday morning, Jacqui and I took a drive out to a little town called Malmesbury, with the primary purpose of replenishing our stocks of sparkling wine, but also with the hope of picking up a decent photo or two during the trip.
As you can see, it was quite a cloudy day, and on our way back we passed this group of workers hand picking the vegetable crop (not sure what it was, so please don't ask :)). South Africa has as one of its nicknames "The rainbow nation", mainly because of all the different race groups that make up our fine country, but to me this was a scene that could have been made for that nickname. The folk that work in our fields, whether they be picking grapes, or vegetables, or fruits, always seem so colourful.
Anyway, I thought this was a nice peaceful image with which to end off the week. I thank all of you for your lovely comments yesterday, and wish you all the most wonderful of weekends. See you on Monday. Take care.
