Beautiful Kettle Beach Boardwalk July 2022

Please scroll down for pictures and video.

The boardwalk to Kettle Beach at Keurboomstrand in Plettenberg Bay in South Africa gives you great views of the waves surging against the rocks just below. Look at the pictures and video below. If you go to “Plett” don’t miss it. It is very easy to get there. It is about 6 km from Plettenberg Bay on the Cape Town side. At the start of the walkway is Enrico’s Restaurant.

On video please turn up sound and turn iPhone on side if necessary.

“Bear Cottage” – A Very Sacred Place – Please read this blog post

John Bartels May 2022

St. Patrick’s Estate is high on a hill overlooking Manly in Australia. On the Estate is a small green field and some buildings overlooked by a statue of the Holy Mother. You stand there. You are reduced to silence. And so you should be for the buildings are “Bear Cottage”, a children’s Hospice. The only one is New South Wales and only one of three in Australia.

Please read about “Bear Collage” here and hhttps://bearcottage.schn.health.nsw.gov.au/home.php#/lifeere and remember everyone there in your prayers.

Thank you

To God be the Glory

Walk from Manly Beach to Fairlight

A great walk. Tarred walkways. Paradise for joggers and dog walkers. Views of the Heads and ferries at Manly Wharf. A secluded beach. Skin diving. A swimming pool constantly being filled by splashing sea water. Please scroll down for some pictures. June 2022.
