A pretty river scene

Early settlers saw the river and valley and said it was "mooi" which is Afrikaans for "pretty".

This part of the [Mooi] river flows past our friends' guest house in the Muden Valley. Whenever I visit there, I find I take dozens of photos of this pretty river

The Mooi River is a river in KwaZulu-Natal Province, South Africa. It rises in the Mkomazi Nature Reserve in the Drakensberg Mountains, and empties into the Tugela River near Muden. The town of Mooi River lies along this river some distance to the south.

  1. A very mooi river, as were all the rivers I saw in the Draks.

  2. Pretty, indeed, Jo. I'd even say beautiful. It looks so serene and restful. It's bedtime here and I can take that scene to bed with me.
