ArthurD, please PM me if you get stuck. You also need to ensure you have not checked the box 'Disable BBCode' under your posting window. But you must first resize your pics to smaller than 800pix wide as Anne-marie advised.

Following our one day visit to WCNP, I prepared a TR where a number of forumites indicated that they must put this park on their bucket list or when visiting Cape Town again.

To promote the park further, I forwarded an article to Wild Card which they published on Wild Card blog. It take the form of a 2 parts. Herewith the links to the Wild Card website/blog:
Flower power: West Coast trip report - part 1
Flower power: West Coast trip report - part 2

TR reference:
West Coast National Park: Flower power in Aug'13
Enjoy :thumbs_up:
