I never tire of watching the light reflect on the water of our lake: at sunrise, at sunset, at midday and at midnight. Fed by six springs and one small stream, the water is in constant motion. I can sit there for hours, quietly watching. The lake has a very fitting name. It is called Sans Souci, which means ‘without a care”.
It is the perfect place to relax after a day of walking and wine tasting. Most of our Walking and Wine Tasting Workshop guests retire to the large deck that stretches out into the lake at the end of the day. Many of the guests on our personal empowerment “Connect with Horses” Workshops do the same – the mesmerising late-afternoon light shining on the water soothes the souls of man and beast.

Beautiful pictures – especially the first two. Love the light!
Verskriklike mooi foto’s. Sans Souci. Sorgeloos. Dit was die plaas se naam waar ons voorheen gewoon het.
Vreeslik dankie! My wegkruipplek…
Wow this was a beautiful post. I felt like I was reading a book and I love the horse photo. Maybe you could take a look at my blog and I’d be happy to exchange likes on the posts we like and a follow!
Ah, the South of France in October. How I long to be there. Thanks for the fabulous photos to give me a respite.
You are very welcome, Janet! We have had a very mild year, it is still 20°C + during the day, but the nights are colder now and the first snow has fallen on the Pyrenées mountains…
Dit lyk soos ‘n paradys…pragtig!
In die somer. Dis nou herfs, en die kleure is nog mooi, maar dit begin kouer te word. Ons is hier in die skadu van die magtige Pyrenees bergreeks, an die eerste sneeu het al geval. Die koudste maand is Februarie, maar in Februarie kuier ek by my Pa in Betty’s Baai.
Dis besonders…lekker dat ek nou so ‘n kykie op ‘n ander wêreld kry!
Nice reflections. I particularly liked the first photo.
My favourite too.
