I recently took a trip to Gqeberha (formerly Port Elizabeth)
There had been a fire in the forest nearby, so the road was quite hazy.
We stopped at our usual place for coffee with a view of Storm’s River bridge….

we were delighted to have the company of birds and a cat drinking out of the stone bird bath..

With a friend I discovered an amazing Art Gallery in Gqeberha, where they use the barter system.
I could pin a note to a painting I loved requesting an exchange for something
of equal value, and the artist could decide if it was something they need…

“We are pure” by Sanelisiwe Singaphi

Our next stop was the main gallery where we found a treasure trove of different pieces…

I especially loved these photos entitled “Joy”

I also loved the old buildings in the area and the post box that has almost become a collector’s item…


I am an unknown introvert who desires to touch the world with a little bit of magic...
