Kids at Play at Peregrine Farm Stall in Grabouw (2017-03-11) Farm Stalls | Photo Gallery 25 JUL 2017

Situated in the fertile Elgin Valley, just outside of Grabouw, Peregrine began life as a humble little fruit vending stall on the side of the N2 way back in 1964, and in the many years since, has morphed into somewhat of a road trip institution for anyone travelling over Sir Lowry’s Pass. 2014 marked Peregrine Farm … Continue reading Kids at Play at Peregrine Farm Stall in Grabouw (2017-03-11)

Everson’s Cider Tasting at Peregrine Farm Stall in Grabouw (2016-11-05) Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions 14 DEC 2016

The last time that I found myself at the cleverly expanded Peregrine Farm Stall (which in truth is a lot bigger than just a simple farm stall these days), I didn’t get around to doing a tasting at the Everson’s Cider pop-up tasting room. This time around though, despite the allure of the wonderful Elgin Open … Continue reading Everson’s Cider Tasting at Peregrine Farm Stall in Grabouw (2016-11-05)

Pies and Play at Peregrine Farm Stall in Elgin (2016-09-10) Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions 07 OCT 2016

Situated in the fertile Elgin valley, just past Grabouw, and first established way back in 1964, the ever popular Peregrine Farm Stall is somewhat of a mainstay when it comes to farm stall stops along the N2! But this is no tired looking old farm stall any more mind you. Following a devastating fire in 2014, … Continue reading Pies and Play at Peregrine Farm Stall in Elgin (2016-09-10)

Lunch at The Orchard Farm Stall in Grabouw (2017-03-11) Farm Stalls | Photo Gallery 13 AUG 2017

The plan had originally been for me to have lunch with the girls over at the Elgin Grabouw Country Club in Grabouw. However, that plan was abruptly put paid to on discovery of one lone “beware of snakes” signboard at the country club, meaning that a new plan was now hastily required – which is … Continue reading Lunch at The Orchard Farm Stall in Grabouw (2017-03-11)

If you feel like a drive with the kids, then why not shoot up the N2 and tackle Sir Lowry’s Pass, taking it up past Steenbras Dam and then swinging left into Grabouw.

Birthday Weekend away in Franschhoek (2015-05-08) Photo Gallery 23 JUN 2015

The fact that I was going to be away for business in Sandton for my birthday back in May, meant that Chantelle and I bumped things up a little and headed out to breathtaking Franschhoek the weekend preceding Monday the 11th, free of the kids (thanks grandparents!) and ready to take in some culture! Early … Continue reading Birthday Weekend away in Franschhoek (2015-05-08)

This Long Weekend My Life 15 JUN 2013

Thanks to the cold and wet weather last weekend, we didn’t get up to anything really worth reporting back about, and with Chantelle a bit busy on the Saturday, Jessica and I did the best to entertain ourselves by playing some Just Cause 2, stacking countless tuna tins, and sneaking out for rides on the … Continue reading This Long Weekend

Weather over the weekend wasn’t particularly great, and with Chantelle out and about Jessica and I did our best to keep ourselves busy – you know doing things like stacking tuna tins and sneaking outside for a ride on the push bike when the clouds cleared just a little! Luckily Sunday was a whole different … Continue reading Photo Gallery: Weekend Fun (Including a Trip to Red Tractor) (2013-06-09)

30 Seconds with the Folks and the Rest of a Weekend My Life 04 JUL 2011

Had a thoroughly enjoyable evening of boardgame fun again on Friday night, though not with the usual suspects mind you. Actually, now that I come think about it, I have been rather lax in keeping you updated with the more mundane aspects of life in the Lotter Clan, like how Chantelle and I spent her … Continue reading 30 Seconds with the Folks and the Rest of a Weekend
