    On the Westcoast of the Cape and all over this area a little inland and coastal every year gives off the most beautiful wild flower displays. This year was said to be very good!. We had to travel to Saldanha Bay for other purposes, and on the way back decided to do a detour through the West Coast National Park to see the Postburg wild flowers. These are the photos we took. This was on Saturday, and we are so glad we never changed it to a Sunday trip as the weather on Sunday was awful. Saturday was a brilliant sunny warm day, so it all turned out really perfect!

    At one point we came up to the coast line and there were some nice big rocks just off the beach we sat and watched the sea splash up on to them, it was nice to just sit in the warm sunshine and relax.

    This area used to be called Namaqualand many years ago, it was a province of the Cape, long since changed. Most of the wild flowers you see are called Namaqualand daisies.
