Sighting of Slangkop Point Lighthouse in Kommetjie (2017-02-18) | Gah, another lighthouse tour opportunity missed - I really should look up the operating hours for these things! We were in the Kommetjie area (near Noordhoek) courtesy of a very successful visit to the nearby Imhoff Farm, following which, despite the VERY threatening clouds that ...

A Boardwalk down to the River Mouth at Gouritz (2016-12-31) | The girls and I had the pleasure of spending some time down at the fishing/holiday coastal town of Gouritz (or Gouritsmond depending on who you ask) last December, with the trip being sweetened even further after learning that Chantelle could also come down to spend ...

Wine Tasting at Waverley Hills in Wolseley (2016-12-11) | Situated between Tulbagh and Ceres, close to Wolseley and at the foothills of the Witzenberg Mountain Range, is Waverley Hills, an organic estate known for three things - it's role in nature conservation, organic farming, and perhaps the most export worthy of them all - ...

The Beach, Ice Cream and a Festival at Surfers Corner in Muizenberg (2016-10-16) | It is difficult to deny that the South Peninsula is a particularly beautiful stretch of Cape Town's surrounds, and in fact, South Africa in general. If you are a surfer or are looking to become one, then Muizenberg Beach's Surfer's Corner is probably the spot ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
Birdwatching at Intaka Island in Century City, Cape Town (2016-09-18) | It is not exactly hidden, but if you only ever travel to Century City for the Canal Walk mall, Virgin Active gym, or Ratanga Junction theme park, then you may have missed the incredibly enjoyable nature experience lurking within its boundaries - Intaka Island. Situated in ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
MacBook Air: How to Update Node.js | Ugh. I needed to fire up the loan MacBook Air to do an iOS compile of my recently completed Appcelerator app. Naturally, I started off on the wrong foot by not recalling the MacBook's password (luckily I found that I had mailed it to myself ...

Lunch at the Old Gaol on Church Square in Swellendam (2016-09-22) | Sadly, Swellendam's Old Gaol Restaurant is no longer situated in the historic Old Gaol building (Jail for those of you who prefer the more commonly used spelling these days), but luckily it lives on, now branded as Old Gaol on Church Square, and happily housed ...

Touching Owls from Eagle Encounters at Spier in Stellenbosch (2016-09-11) | I'm not massively fond of animals in captivity. However, there is most of the time a sound argument for this to be a thing (and necessary at that), so okay, I'll go with it. Plus, when you have kids, nothing beats a trip to see ...

Seals and Fishing Boats at Kalk Bay Harbour (2016-10-16) | It is no surprise really that the working fishing harbour of Kalk Bay, itself a small fishing village,  is as big a tourist attraction as what it is. Situated on a beautiful stretch of the False Bay coastline, the small harbour is home to a ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
Flower Gazing at the Durbanville Rose Garden (2017-02-12) | First opened in 1979, the award-winning Durbanville Rose Garden stands as one of only three trial rose gardens in the Southern Hemisphere. Jointly cared for by the Friends of the Rose Garden society and the Durbanville Municipality, this lovely garden stands at 3.5 hectares big, ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
Lunch at Stormsvlei Restaurant and Farm Stall in Stormsvlei (2016-12-30) | Situated on the banks of the Sonderend River and originally part of a farm that was established in the 1700's, Stormsvlei (translated as Storm Marsh in English) is a now tiny Overberg hamlet that forms part of the greater Swellendam area. Originally settled as an outspan ... (Photo Gallery | Restaurants)
Train Rides at the Century City Natural Goods Market (2017-01-29) | I like the Century City Natural Goods Market. Not because we've traded there in the past, but rather because of the always enjoyable vibe that emanates from this particular market. The atmosphere is laid back, there is always chill music on the go, you have the openness ... (Markets | Photo Gallery)
