Good morning GG-ers :gflower:

Alias

A tribute to the calves
Where the name was shortened
But the name still lives on
Where an Afrikaans Bordeaux style post master can be found
Where one is crying
Now add a vertical line and you have guessed the alias

Yes, well done Carolcass it is Hermanusl :D :clap: :clap: :clap:

Alias

A tribute to the calves – An Annual “Kalfiefees” in hounour of the whale calves are held in the Western Cape town of Hermanus. Kalfiefees is Afrikaans for Calve Festival.

Where the name was shortened - Hermanus was originally called Hermanuspietersfontein but shortened as the name was too long for the postal service.

But the name still lives on - Hermanuspietersfontein is the name of a wine cellar at Hermanus

Where an Afrikaans Bordeaux style post master can be found – One of the wines that can be bought at the Hermanuspietersfontein wine cellar is called “Posmeester” or Post Master in English which is a Bordeaux-style blend of wine

Where one is crying - The Whale Crier of Hermanus

Now add a vertical line and you have guessed the alias - l

= Hermanusl which is the alias of the forum member

Thank you GG-ers :gflower:
