Baie dankie aan elkeen wat by gister se vertoef het. Die wit hoek van gister se foto het my ook gepla. Dankie Doretha en Tina vir julle raad. (Onder is die huiswerk) Ek wonder hoeveel fotograwe het al by die van Reenen Begraafplaas gestop??

Die Internet gee die volgende inligting :
The area has a rich local history of story-telling, legends & African Basotho folklore. This story is about Valerie Wilcocks & Johan Bestendig De la Harpe, a young couple in love. Only a year separated them. Valerie was a beautiful young woman, spirited & independent minded & her boyfriend Johan, a handsome & adventurous young man in his prime.
It was the summer of 1932. Clarens was only twenty years old, a tiny village established in 1912 with dirt roads & sandstone cottages built by Cornish stonemasons. The young lovers would mount their horses & ride out from the farms of their respective families to meet at a rendezvous in the mountains near Clarens so that they could spend time precious together. They met in secret against the express wishes of their parents because of a long simmering feud between the Wilcocks & the De la Harpe families. One day while riding near Mont-Aux- Sources, cruel fate unleashed a double tragedy upon their families. The young lovers were struck & killed by lightning. Their grieving families set aside their differences & buried the young lovers next to each other. Valerie was twenty two years old & Johan was twenty one. They died on 18 December 1932, one day after Johan’s twenty second birthday.
In this tiny cemetery on the side of the road you will find the graves of Valerie & Johan lying beside each other. In the same cemetery you will find the grave of a brave young hero called Nathan van Reenen lying just below the tombstone of his brother Laurens. Nathan was slain by an unknown assailant on 7 December 2013 in Durban whilst coming to the assistance of a victim of crime. He was sixteen years old.

BAie mooi komposisie, goed gedoen Elna.  Ons moes dit gemis het, nie van geweet nie.

Mens sal dink dit is die laaste plek wat uit vrye wil besoek word, en tog bly ons gefassineer deur begraafplase. Pragtige foto met die berg as agtergrond.
