Lunch at Mondeor Garden Restaurant in Somerset West (2016-07-24) Photo Gallery | Restaurants 30 JUL 2016

In an effort to get out of the house on a Sunday afternoon, but facing the challenge of not actually feeling like driving anywhere, Chantelle and I opted to take the kids for lunch and some play time at Mondeor Garden Restaurant, a perennial favourite of ours out in Somerset West. Although it is too … Continue reading Lunch at Mondeor Garden Restaurant in Somerset West (2016-07-24)

Coffee at Mondeor and a Stroll around Cape Garden Centre (2016-06-16) Photo Gallery 18 JUN 2016

Of all the things to catch, I was stuck at home in quarantine with German Measles for a week. My period of quarantine ended the day before Thursday’s Youth Day public holiday, so I promptly escaped my cabin by taking the kids out for supper at the Sunset Bay Spur here in Gordon’s Bay. (Which … Continue reading Coffee at Mondeor and a Stroll around Cape Garden Centre (2016-06-16)

Jessica’s Mondeor Restaurant Birthday Party (2015-11-13) Photo Gallery 22 NOV 2015

For some or other reason, Chantelle decided to challenge herself by having not one, but two birthday parties for Jessica (turning five) this year. The first one would be for all the local Gordon’s Bay friends (i.e. from Vergeet-My-Nie playschool and our Country Mews complex), and the second one for our family and other friends out … Continue reading Jessica’s Mondeor Restaurant Birthday Party (2015-11-13)

Swimming at Mondeor Garden Restaurant (2014-11-30) Photo Gallery 17 NOV 2015

Oops. Found this folder of photos I completely forgot to post to the blog last year November, taken on one of our outings post Jess’ birthday party to Mondeor Garden Restaurant. How do I know it was post-birthday? Well mainly because Jessica was totally rocking out in her brand new (and thoroughly awesome) Rainbow Dash … Continue reading Swimming at Mondeor Garden Restaurant (2014-11-30)

Pancakes at Paardevlei, Milkshake at Mondeor (2015-10-03) Photo Gallery 31 OCT 2015

At the beginning of the month, whilst Chantelle was working her weekend shift, Jessica, Emily and I nipped out to surprise her by buying some flowers from the Paardevlei Farmers Market. The market was a lot, lot quieter than last time, so it was a more relaxed visit for the girls and me, with us … Continue reading Pancakes at Paardevlei, Milkshake at Mondeor (2015-10-03)

Weekend of Root 44, Mondeor, and Blaauwklippen (2015-04-25) Photo Gallery 03 SEP 2015

Back in April this year we enjoyed a nice long weekend thanks to Freedom Day falling on a Monday, and looking back at the photos, it looks like we might just have filled up the weekend with visits to perennial weekend favourites of ours – namely Root 44 market, Mondeor Garden Restaurant, and of course, … Continue reading Weekend of Root 44, Mondeor, and Blaauwklippen (2015-04-25)

Mondeor and a visit from the Folks (2015-07-25) Photo Gallery 06 AUG 2015

Two weekends ago we were out and about on the Saturday furniture shopping (Chantelle was working, so it was during her split), a completely pointless task if you have a toddler and a four year old tagging along, because invariably they quickly get bored and you end up being more busy getting them to stop … Continue reading Mondeor and a visit from the Folks (2015-07-25)

The Race to Mondeor (or… Damn It, I was Wrong!) My Life 14 APR 2015

There’s been an argument brewing here in the Country Mews Lotter Stronghold for a while now – is it faster to get onto the N2 proper by going right into Dennhof, onto Sir Lowry’s road and then on to the N2, or is it quickest if you go left into Dennehof, travel along the newly … Continue reading The Race to Mondeor (or… Damn It, I was Wrong!)
