Bloem, surrounding & beyond
« on: January 09, 2021, 06:04:12 pm »
So it seems that if you want to be cool today you need to be some sort of vlogger, blogger, social influencer, or something in the line of that.

Lets see if I can become proficient in whatever any of these are.

Plan is to share some rides I go on and the places I see in order to become the next .................. (fill in whoever comes to mind)

Maybe, just maybe 2021 is the year for me to finally also be 'cool'   :biggrin:

The Krugersdrift dam was still not full enough to overflow even though we had a lot of rain since RobC's pics

As you head back to Bloem just coming over the hill you get a nice view of how big the dam really is. Crazy! Don't think the pic does justice
