Coffee at Mondeor and a Stroll around Cape Garden Centre (2016-06-16) | 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 ... (Photo Gallery)
Doing the Paardevlei Nature Walk around the Vlei (2016-06-16) | With the breakfast pancakes made, a little bit of gardening done and dusted, a small bit of DIY under the belt, and the shopping mission now complete, I decided to continue our Youth Day 2016 public holiday by taking Jessica and Emily out for a ...

Baking Peanut Butter Cookies with the Girls (2016-06-11) | With me still waylaid due to my battle with German Measles, we didn't exactly go out this weekend (I was still rather contagious, so better safe than sorry). As such, Chantelle made some time in the afternoon to treat the girls (and Cara who had ... (Photo Gallery)
Montgomery Pizza Party (2016-06-04) | Father-in-law Monty has for a long time wanted to have his very own pizza oven, and at long last, following quite a lengthy wait, the pizza oven is in, the preparation work done, leaving only one more thing to do - organize a pizza party! Although Rob ... (Photo Gallery)
Picnic at the Harold Porter Botanical Garden in Betty's Bay (2016-05-28) | We discovered the beautiful Harold Porter Botanical Garden in Betty's Bay last year, and following our delightful little outing to the Stony Point penguin colony with Retha and Miguel, we decided that the botanical garden would be the perfect spot for some delicious picnic food. Which it was. The ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
Visiting the Stony Point Penguin and Seabird Breeding Colony in Betty's Bay (2016-05-28) | Since the kids, Chantelle and I have probably visited the world class African Penguin breeding colony at the Stony Point Nature Reserve in Betty's Bay on average at least once a year, purely because it's a works so well as a tourist attraction and is ...

Visiting the University of Stellenbosch Botanical Garden (2016-05-31) | I've mentioned in passing that I might be heading over to the US in July to attend an expo for business purposes, and as such I obviously needed to pick up a US visa - a story I still need to get around to telling ...

Celebrating Dad's 60th with Cake and Table Tennis (2016-05-29) | My dad, Ronnie Lötter, hit the big 60 eight days after I hit 36, but seeing as he was first off for a fabulous weekend of golf in George with his social golfing club, we had to wait a good couple of days more until ... (Photo Gallery)
Visiting the Overberg Honey Co. in Stanford (2016-05-21) | Following our refreshing stroll among the boulders and sand of De Kelders in Gansbaai, Chantelle and I made our way back towards Stanford in order to continue our lovely Blue Gum Country Estate weekend away. However, as we entered the outskirts of the small heritage ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
Refreshing Ice Cream from Don Gelato in Stanford (2016-05-21) | One of the best Stanford treats that we came across while walking around Stanford during our weekend away at the Blue Gum Country Estate, was without a doubt the quirky green ice cream shop that is Don Gelato! That said though, I suspect that the wonderfully ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
Strolling through the Village of Stanford (2016-05-21) | As I previously mentioned, Chantelle and I recently enjoyed a relaxing (no kids!) weekend away at the Blue Gum Country Estate just outside of Stanford, which if you don't know where it is, lies halfway between Hermanus and Gansbaai. This heritage village was founded in 1857 and ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
Sea Views from De Kelders in Gansbaai (2016-05-21) | Following a brilliant breakfast at the Blue Gum Country Estate (where we were spending a weekend in May), Chantelle discovered that she was unfortunately in need of some headache pills - and seeing as the delightful little village of Stanford doesn't actually have a pharmacy ...

Weekend Away at Blue Gum Country Estate in Stanford (2016-05-20) | In keeping with my mission to go away at least once a month this year (Jacobsbaai in February, Mossel Bay in March, and Barrydale in April), May proved to be no exception, with Chantelle spotting a great deal on Daddy's Deals that gave us access to ...
