A gem of a place in the Cape of South Africa - the town of McGregor.
This is a photo of the Cape Dutch gable of the municipality building - The Visitor Centre.
There are 12 photo sets in this "CAM".

the local "wildlife" - guineafowl, or ( 'tarentaal' as referred to by the locals) -
roaming the back streets of McGregor towards the end of the day.
It's fascinating to watch them scurry about...
and they look interesting with their white-spotted black feathers, blue necks and red crests
One of those quirky shots I enjoyed taking.
This is a guineafowl sculpture made from beads outside the shop called Malmani - and of course, the church, which is an ever present sight from most places in McGregor town...
This was a "weird" and interesting find...
The Temore temple at Temenos in McGregor.
If you get a chance to visit and ask permission to wander the gardens in silence, you will be greeting with an "interesting" experience on exiting this 'temple' after a few minutes inside.
It has to be experienced to be believed...
