When I moved into Herfsakker Retirement Village seven years ago my family imagined I would be ‘traditional’ and sit on my stoep (porch) drinking coffee. That is what is supposed to happen, I believe, to people in their latter years when they are no longer working. Not so in my case though as birding has long been both my profession and my hobby. I spent a lot of time atlasing and travelling around Mpumalanga seeking birds in places I had never ever visited before, and I loved it. Then came the registration of the Turning Kruger Green project and that was the best three years of my life I feel. However that is now behind me and I do find I am slowing down in my old age.
This is where my stoep comes into play...
