Laughing Waters Farm is ideally located in the Overberg, close to the sea, the mountains, and immersed in the fynbos, South Africa’s incredibly diverse vegetation type.
Out walking at Laughing Waters Farm I regularly find quills and am reminded of the discreet presence of porcupines. In remembering a thrilling night encounter with three seemingly enormous porcupines, their quills erected, I am inspired to explore the facts and fantasies.
Many thanks to Tobi Heinze for supplying us with some wonderful footage of the clouds passing over Laughing Waters Farm.
It is raining at Laughing Waters Farm. Delighted! During a brief pause in precipitation I Ieap from the house, happy to momentarily escape our pent-up kids and attention seeking cats. A frog gives me a jump, hopping across my foot. The rain soaks into the crackled grass.
Recently, we had the great privilege of hosting Barbara Cilliers from https://soonafternoon.com/ at Laughing Waters Farm. We want to thank Barbara for the wonderful article she wrote about our farm and hope to read more about her journeys on her blog.
We had arrived to Laughing Waters Farm in the Western Cape Overberg, on the 13th October 2012, a day I remember very clearly. The feeling of being lost in a place that seemed to be in the middle of Nowhere. Six years have passed and we now proudly pronounce that we are in the middle of Everywhere.
