Tulbagh is a wonderful place to visit to see the vernacular Cape Dutch architecture. The combination of whitewashed walls, Dutch gables, reminiscent of Amsterdam, thick wattle and daub walls. The valley was first discovered by European settlers in 1658. The town was developed in 1743. Post the 1969 earthquake every historic home in Church Street was restored to its original glory. These 32 buildings now are the largest concentration of National Monuments in a single street in South Africa.

Roses and Rust: CAPE DUTCH BEAUTY

CAPE DUTCH BEAUTY

I don't like to boast, but I really do live in a beautiful part of the world! I am especially reminded of this every Thursday when I drive to the studio where I have an oil painting class. I drive through one of the most beautiful valleys in the Cape, the Constantia Valley, where there is an abundant array of forests, hills, stately historical homes and vineyards, and all of this is found just 5 minutes from my home and about 20 minutes from the city centre. The house in the first picture is…
