Dear reader,

Welcome to sunny South Africa. You’ve reached the website of Cornelia Smith Fick also known as Colleen Lynn.

I live in a place where the sun shines during winter. It is warm during the day and only cold at night and in the early morning.

We have a variety of plants and animals that could spark your imagination, whether it is the mighty lion or the colourful African wild dog.
