Nee, nie Wakkerstroom nie. Die omgewing is min of meer korrek, maar hierdie is egter in die Vrystaat.

Between the Thrif Dam and Swart Kei, near the farm Glenroy...? This looks like a Settler influence Methodist Church, and it sure looks like  the Eastern Cape.
I reckon this church used to serve a widespead community, but since the amalgmation of farms into megafarms, the people have left the area and the decay is setting in.
This could be any farm road... nice moody photo,

You can do anything if you have enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is the yeast that makes your hopes rise to the stars. Enthusiasm is the sparkle in your eyes, the swing in your gait, the grip of your hand, the irresistible surge of will and energy to execute your ideas. Enthusiasts are fighters. They have fortitude. They have staying qualities. Enthusiasm is at the bottom of all progress. With it, there is accomplishment. Without it, there are only alibis.

Amazing what a nice paint job can do. I would like to see inside that church.

Cant remember the name of that place, just outside Jeffries Bay, there is a communications tower on top, been there very windy.

Those hills get progressively smaller as you look out Jeffries Bay.
