Thank you Nina!, wanderw, lion queen, Crested Val, Tobieo, Delene D and Sharifa.

Sorry that I did not come back earlier, but we were in the West Coast National Park including Postberg on Friday and the wild flowers are just stunnig. Used yesterday, between the Rugby and Cricket, to sort the photos out.

Here are just a few photos of West Coast National Park.

Thank you Rookie.

Back to Namaqualand.

From Skilpad farm, which became part of Namaqua National Park, we drove down through the park to Soebatsfontein, a small town closer to the see. On route we saw te following flowers.

The next day we went from Garies, where we stayed, on the Hondeklipbaai road via Soutfontein and Sarrisam to the Coastal Section of Namaqua National Park.

On this road we saw the following.
