NIEU-BET­HES­DA — Fol­lo­wing the rain that fell last week o­ver the Nieu-bet­hes­da val­ley, the Gats Ri­ver ran a­gain, brin­ging de­lig­ht to all who wit­nes­sed this li­fe-gi­ving for­ce!

De­cent a­mounts of rain fell o­ver the ca­t­chment a­re­as to the North of the village, and the fol­lo­wing mor­ning the long-a­wai­ted sound of the ri­ver flo­wing could be he­ard throug­hout the village.

The wa­ter fur­rows are on­ce a­gain full and the fod­der crops are lush and g­reen and re­a­dy for har­ves­ting.

It is beau­ti­ful look­ing o­ver a Ka­roo­s­ca­pe that is no lon­ger harshly bro­wn but flus­hed with glo­ri­ous g­reen. Joy per­so­ni­fied! P­ho­to: Vic­to­ria Nan­ce. Alt­hea Je­zer­sky he­ard the weir o­ver­flo­wing ne­ar her ho­me in the e­ar­ly mor­ning.
