Milktart Pancakes at Koffie Stories in Gouritz (2016-12-31) | We enjoyed a great end of December family vacation in the seaside holiday/fishing village of Gouritz (aka Gouritsmond) last year. One of the nice little discoveries that we made whilst there was this tiny little coffee shop squeezed into the premises of Swanepoel Algemene Handelaars (General ... (Photo Gallery | Restaurants)
Water Savings in Cape Town | As pretty much each and every Capetonian that gives a damn knows by now, Cape Town is currently gripped by a rather alarmingly large water shortage thanks to the drought-like conditions that we've experienced over the last two years or so in the area. The City ... (My Life)
Visiting the Steenbras Water Treatment Plant Lookout Point (2016-10-29) | I've previously mentioned how I took the girls up to the Steenbras Water Treatment Plant lookout point above Gordon's Bay last year, a trip that involves a rather perilous walk along a ridge which I allowed the girls to do by themselves. This of course mortified ...

Pizza at the Shuntin' Shed in Bot River (2017-01-04) | Another one of those little South African towns that have become forgotten once rail became less important and national roads were built to bypass it is Botrivier (or Bot River which doesn't sound nearly as nice), situated at the bottom of Houw Hoek pass, at ...

Coffee at Delish in Heidelberg (2017-01-04) | It is hard to miss Delish as you whiz past Heidelberg on the N2 towards the Garden Route, thanks to the bright red shed (the wine shop), large signage and bright yellow sunflowers dotted all around. The girls and I opted to stop and stretch our ... (Photo Gallery | Restaurants)
Why do Classic Cartoon Characters wear white gloves? | I'm familiar with the concept of a cartoon hand in animation being drawn with four fingers only (image simplification, cartoon proportions, etc), but I've never really pondered as to why so many of the classic cartoon characters (like say Mickey Mouse and Goofy from the ...
