Butterfly Haven Castle - Streams & W'falls

BHC enjoyed seasonal streams and small waterfalls for several months per year.
Even during the wetter months, these were intermittent. The water flow above ground was only obvious for several days after it had just poured. The koppie (small hill) behind us collected much water when it rained and this came gushing down to sea level through the magical land of BHC.

There were two main streams, which I shall name:-
  1. Bridgey. Its route was koppie/Amphitheatre/Rope Bridge/neighbour. This was the fastest, steepest, largest one. It had two bridges.
  2. Unruly. Its route was koppie/Log Cabin/Sorcerer's Cave/Jacuzzi/neighbour. This came very close to the House. It tended to partially go under the House until we laid thick plastic on its course and used rocks to control its flow.
Other stream and waterfall photos follow Bridgey & Unruly.

Bridgey flowed furiously down from the koppie:-

Further down the route - in the dry season - the river course looked like this:-
