Hierdie huisies in Katbakkies was opgerig deur Boerneef soos hy as digter aan ons bekend is. Die laaste foto is een wat ek in 'n boek gekry het waar die huis darem nog dak op gehad het. Dit was hulle veepos as hulle met die vee vanaf Boplaas getrek het na die Karoo plaas.
Boplaas is nou nog in dieselfde Van Der merwe familie. [ Die van julle wat vanaf Op Die Berg na die Cederberge ry, ry by Boplaas verby. Daar is so 'n groot hoender op die naambord ]

I.W. vd Merwe Boerneef
Biografiese inligting
Boerneef, die skuilnaam van Izak Wilhelmus van der Merwe, is op 11 Mei 1897 op die plaas Boplaas naby Ceres gebore. Hy gaan skool op Ceres en studeer later aan die Universiteit van Kaapstad. Hy verwerf ’n M.A.- en B.Ed-graad. Na universiteit hou hy skool by South African College High School (S.A.C.S.) waarna hy van 1922 tot 1961 as dosent en later professor in Afrikaans en Nederlands aan die Universiteit van Kaapstad verbonde is. Boerneef sterf op 2 Julie 1967 in Kaapstad en word in 1968 postuum met die Herzogprys vir poësie bekroon.
Boerneef was hartstogtelik verknog aan sy kontrei: die Kro, die Kamdebo, Koorsteenberg en Katbakkies; Sikketaarskloof, Soebatsfontein, Speserykloof. In sy vroeëre jare het hy meestal net kortverhale en prosa geskryf en het later (op 61-jarige ouderdom), begin dig. Hy was ook bekend vir sy gedigte oor plaas en stad, asook Karoo-Afrikaans. Boerneef het na sy gedigte as “volkspoësie” verwys.
Het jy geweet?
•   Boerneef het saam met D.B. Bosman en later L.W. Hiemstra aan die opstel van ’n tweetalige woordeboek (eerste uitgawe uitgegee in 1931) gewerk.
•   Louis van Rensburg het drie van Boerneef se gedigte getoonset as die liedjie “Voshaarnooi” wat veral bekend geword het in die TV-reeks, Ballade vir ’n enkeling.

•   Die komponis Pieter de Villiers het van sy ander bekende gedigte soos “Die berggans het ’n veer laat val” en “Aandblom is ’n witblom” getoonset. Dit het ’n belangrike bydrae tot die Afrikaanse kunslied gemaak, en dit was van sopraan Mimi Coertse se gunsteling liedere om te sing.

Nice Thread.

Tussen Fraserburg en Leeu-Gamka, het nie 'n clue wie hom gebou het nie maar as na die deure kyk moes die mense maar doners kort gewees het.

Remember that hapiness is a way of travel - not a destination.

I find the construction methods the most interesting of all in these ruins.

Sun-dried unbaked clay bricks with mud mortar.
Rammed earth
Hand-packed stone
Wattle-and-daub

These are traditional building methods that are at risk of disappearing from use in modern society.
It's fascinating !  ;D

Not really a ruin yet, but getting there.

Somewhere in the Swaershoek area near Cradock.  Going again there later this month to show a few "Ingelse" where I grew up  :ricky:
