We ended off the last December holidays (which were really more January holidays than anything else) by dragging Mom and Dad with us for a goodbye breakfast at Delfino’s, the popular beach-facing restaurant at the Point in Mossel Bay.
I hadn’t been there in years, and to be honest, I rather enjoyed being back. All the old brown colour scheme has now been switched out to beach friendly blue (with a LOT of Flying Fish sponsorship), the restaurant is as well staffed (and popular) as ever, and it was a rather nice surprise to find out that over season they offer a proper breakfast buffet as part of their menu – which most of our party actually opted for on this particular morning outing. (I of course was going to be difficult.)
Plus, lazily watching the surfers hit the waves while your kids play on the lawn and beach out in front of you makes for a pretty chill breakfast expedition. A pretty decent start to the day then.
Too bad the literal next step was getting in the car and then driving the 4.5 hour route back home. Still, not the worst way to cap off what had been a thoroughly relaxing holiday with the family.
