Where was this photo taken (2)

Post by Pine » Tue Oct 04, 2016 11:10 am

Following Retrovan's excellent idea for a thread, I was wondering if anyone can identify where and when this pic was taken?

I don't know myself, and also don't know who took the pic.

Hey driver, where're we going?
I swear my nerves are showing
Set your hopes up way too high
The living's in the way we die

The mountain in the background seems quite distinctive; I'm sure one of the cape locals will recognise it.

My guess is somewhere between Hermanus and Stanford.

It may be a place called "don't double click on the submit button"?

Remember seeing that picture somewhere, think it was a club run to the Pringle Bay/Rooi Els area? Quite like the look of that first buggy!

The road looks to be a sand road, and the mountain looks to be the one at Lady Slipper in the Eastern Cape as seen from the N2 just outside of Port Elizabeth.
