InstaFamous

Last week we got featured on Apple’s official @instagram account! “We” actually referring to my son – I just snapped the photo. He choreographed it. It’s kind of mind bending to quantify a feature like this. The world’s largest company featuring a photo I took. On a social account they only post one photo a […]

Cape Cycle Tour 2019

A howling south easter made this year’s 109km cycle tour a rather challenging one. It was however a much more enjoyable one having done a little more training than for previous attempts.
