Cosmos

With incredible blue skies above us we drove out into the country towards the Cradle of Mankind, north of Johannesburg.  At this time of year the Cosmos flower alongside the highways/side roads but due to the amount of rain we have been having much of the shoulder-height long grass had been cut back along with the tall flowering Cosmos.  Unfortunately there was not the usual banks of color like last year much to our disappointment!  However in a few of our favorite spots we did manage to capture the wonderful pink and white blooms together with the luminous fluffy grass waving in the afternoon's warm Summer breeze.

Land Rover World Record 4 March 2012

An organized event, Landy Festival, saw the coming together of Land Rovers in all shapes and sizes, and their owners, in an attempt to break the current World Record.   At the moment it is held by the UK for 348 Land Rovers all in one space which was achieved in April 2011.  A World Record is held by Holgate Kingsley and a group of 347 Land Rovers which took place in the Cape for the longest 'humanitarian convoy'.

Judging by the response getting into the Guinness Book of Records will definitely happen.  The following batch of pictures, taken on the day, try to depict the mood, spirit and pride of what it is like to be a Land Rover owner!

Update:  1001(one thousand and one) Land Rovers took part in the convoy.  It took a total of two hours for the participants to pass any given point.

Going home.  Taken near Gilloolys Interchange, Bedfordview.
Derrick and Merle Louw are the owners of a Land Rover Defender 90.
