The Cape Recife Lighthouse and Nature Reserve in Port Elizabeth (2017-07-08) | Built way back in 1851, the Cape Recife Lighthouse was originally established to warn passing ships of the dangerous Thunderbolt Reef (named for the HMS Thunderbolt, a British Royal Nave Sail and Paddle Frigate that wrecked at Cape Recife in 1847), a job the venerable ...

Fish and Sushi at Harbour Rock in the New Harbour of Hermanus (2017-08-09) | As is almost always the case, we were in Hermanus to watch whales. We watched whales from the piazza, we watched whales from Fick's Pool, we watched whales from the cliff path, we... well you get the picture. Anyway, the point is that after all that ...

Coffee at the Van Brakel Stoor Farm Stall near Caledon (2017-12-16) | On one of our spur of the moment weekend outings last year (I suggested to Chantelle that we head out to Stanford for a cheesy picnic at the Klein River Cheese farmstead), I randomly decided to stop for a coffee in the middle of nowhere, ...

Cookies and Coffee at Ikigai Artisan Coffee Bar and Deli in Riversdale (2017-12-26) | I don't normally pull over at Riversdale on any of my N2 jaunts (it's usually too close to my destination), and on the odd occasion that I do stop, it's usually to give Die Rooi Aalwyn/Bali Trading a spin so that the girls can have a ...

USA 2016 - 16 Disney California Adventure Park (2016-07-16) | The NACUFS events always close off with a big social, and the 2016 Anaheim edition was no different, with the final get together hosted at Stage 17 of the Disney California Adventure Park. However, seeing as Johann, Carl and I had already been in full on ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
Banoffee Waffles at the Belgian Waffle House in Strand (2017-12-15) | Just a friendly reminder, but if you are at the beach in Strand and are looking perhaps to either escape the wind or treat your kids to something nice, then it is worth knowing that the excellent Belgian waffles from The Belgian Waffle House are still going ...

Sand Dunes Sunset at Sardinia Bay in Port Elizabeth (2017-07-07) | Having now arrived in Port Elizabeth following our short stay in the Addo Elephant Park (all part  of last year's June Holidays road trip), one of the very first experiences that Evan and Natasha guided us to was enjoying a spectacular sunset from atop the sand ...

Concrete Curves of the Afrikaans Language Monument in Paarl (2017-04-22) | It is impossible not to take notice of the strange, alien-like fingers jutting out from the side of a mountain as you drive towards Paarl, those concrete curves belonging of course to non other than the famous Afrikaans Taalmonument, or to us English-speaking folks, the ...

Milk Tart Jaffles at Signature Divine in Oudtshoorn (2017-07-05) | Having spent the day being guided around the magnificent Cango Caves, watching people zip-line down to Cango Caves Estate, and letting Jessica ride about on a camel at Wilgewandel, we were now happily making our way back towards the guest house, when the rather inviting ...

Bikes and Burgers at The Cafe Racer in Somerset West (2017-10-20) | The Beehive building in Somerset West is old, pretty rundown and has been home to a little family run shop for years. It now also happens to be home to a particularly interesting newcomer to the Somerset West restaurant/bar scene - The Cafe Racer. As you ... (Food and Drink | Photo Gallery)
Staying at The Gull in Sedgefield (2017-07-10) | The last leg of our brilliant June/July holiday breakaway saw us spending two nights based in Sedgefield, a personal favourite stomping ground of mine, thanks to having grown up with grandparents living in this gorgeous sleepy little town. In terms of accommodation, the Internet had come up ... (Accommodation | Photo Gallery)

A Golf Cart and the Houses of Pinnacle Point Estate in Mossel Bay (2017-03-20) | Thanks to dad's amazing fractional ownership of a luxury house in Pinnacle Point Estate (out in Mossel Bay), we end up visiting that area quite a lot - which isn't a bad thing given that it is of course the start of the famous Garden Route ...
