Bourke's Luck Potholes (South Africa)
Brian Peter Fowlie (born 1936 in Africa) - Nicknamed "The Doodle Maste
Born in Southern Rhodesia to a family of 5 children, Brian Fowlie has lived in Torquay for the past 17 years. At 82, his eyesight is failing, but he still finds pleasure in doodling.
The Bourke's Luck Potholes are a popular natural wonder and geological attraction in the Blyde River Canyon in South Africa. The cylindrical porholes are formed by decades of swirling eddies of water - a stunning array of white, yellow and dark brown. They are a natural water feature creating whirlpools where the Treur River (river of sorrow) meets the Blyde River (river of joy). The name comes from the pioneering gold digger and prospector, Tom Burke, who staked a claim there in the 1800's.
