As I'm typing this post the first day of the new year is nearly over. Although I didn't do much today, I really did not have the time to do this post. Pretty much sums up my 2016. Too much to do and not enough time to do it in. It also means that often my blogs were the ones that pulled on the short end of the stick either through the quality of the post, the quality of the photos, the timing of the posts or just sometimes no post at all which meant a later post dated post. Makes sense? So here I sit on the first day of 2017 and, well, I'm nearly late and have no photo of PE to post. Mainly because we spent the last two weeks away on holiday, most of it up in the stunningly beautiful Drakensberg. So I am starting off the year posting a selfie taken on one of the hikes I took in the Berg. I chose it because of the significance of the moment. The 2000 on my hand doesn't mean it's an old photo from 17 years ago. Not at all. By now most of you know I'm an avid Geocacher and during our stay at Mahai in the Royal Natal National Park in the Northern Drakensberg I found my 2000th Geocache. A milestone I'm very proud of and one I decided to share with you today.
2016 was a tough year. Not all bad but definitely not all moonshine and roses. I decided not to use this post to highlight the highs, mention the lows, draw up my New Years's resolutions or list things I want to achieve or places I want to go in 2017. I just want to take this opportunity to wish all my friends and loyal Port Elizabeth Daily Photos followers as well as those who occationally stumble on my blog posts a Happy New Year. May 2017 be your year. I'm sure going to try hard to make it mine. Here's also to hoping that you will all continue to support Port Elizabeth Daily Photo through you visits, reading the posts and sharing the photos and posts on this wonderful city I call home on social media. Have a great 2017!!!!
