Ganora Farm: the Windpump

It’s been a while since I have had the time and space for posting anything here.  We’re just back from Ganora Farm in the Karoo: it was Kate’s first field trip since her colon cancer operation and chemotherapy started six months ago.

Everyone who visits the Karoo has a wind pump picture but I thought I would climb up one to see if I could get something a little different.   I’d had a drink from the sparkling groundwater coming out of the pipe and then scrambled up the ladder to just below the spinning vanes.  Hanging on one-handed whilst taking pictures was a bit tricky but when one of the farm workers appeared to fill his water bottle I was rewarded with this picture.
