Lunch at Mondeor Garden Restaurant in Somerset West (2016-07-24) | In an effort to get out of the house on a Sunday afternoon, but facing the challenge of not actually feeling like driving anywhere, Chantelle and I opted to take the kids for lunch and some play time at Mondeor Garden Restaurant, a perennial favourite ...

Pancakes at Blaauwklippen Family Market (2016-07-10) | After a year or two of going to quite a few weekend markets, this year has seen us attend pretty much none! However, it was the Sunday just before I was to leave on my business trip to the USA, and with Chantelle at home ... (Photo Gallery)
Lunch at Wild Clover (2016-07-09) | If you have kids and find yourself in the Stellenbosch area, then Wild Clover situated on the R304 makes for a great stop.

Coffee and the Giant Aloe at Alcare Aloe in Albertinia (2016-06-27) | The last day of our long weekend away in the Garden Route had finally arrived, and as luck would have it, the good weather that we had been enjoying up until now finally gave way to some rain, making the last morning of hotel breakfast and ...

The Boardwalk of the Pied Kingfisher Trail in Wilderness (2016-06-26) | The Pied Kingfisher Trail is situated in Wilderness in the Western Cape, South Africa. The 11 km long trail is popular with birdwatchers and makes for an ideal morning hike that should take about 3-4 hours to complete. It is an easy going flat circular trail ...

Beer at Cocomo Restaurant in Wilderness (2016-06-26) | Having enjoyed all the stunning coastal scenery afforded to us by first Victoria Bay and then Herolds Bay, we next headed into Wilderness, with the intent to go for a stroll along the Touwsrivier boardwalk with Evan and Natasha. However, it quickly became apparent that by this ... (Food and Drink | Photo Gallery)
Ice Cream at Herolds Bay (2016-06-26) | The second day of our Garden Route weekend away at the Far Hills Country Hotel was off to a good start.

Watching Surfers at Victoria Bay (2016-06-26) | Having enjoyed a brilliant first day out that saw us do a lot of driving and sightseeing, the second day of our Far Hills Country Hotel long weekend getaway got off to a much more relaxed start, with us enjoying some coffee on our private balcony ...

Supper at Texas Kids in George (2016-06-25) | After a lot of driving and many sights seen for the day (Birds of Eden, Plett Puzzle Park,  and Jukani Wildlife Sanctuary), we finally made it back to George (those Garden Route N2 speed limits and abundance of speed cameras really do make for a ...

Exploring Jukani Wildlife Sanctuary in The Crags (2016-06-25) | So far our roadtrip through to The Crags for the first day of our Garden Route getaway to the Far Hills Country Hotel in George was going pretty well.

Exploring Birds of Eden in The Crags (2016-06-25) | The first day of our long weekend away at Far Hills Country Hotel, just outside of George, saw us hit the N2 (and by hit, I mean travel slowly, thanks to the multitude of speed cameras and restrictive speed limits in the area!) and travel ...

Staying at Far Hills Country Hotel in George (2016-06-24) | June saw Chantelle, the girls and I enjoy a bit of a long weekend away break, booking in at the Far Hills Country Hotel just outside of George, on your way to Wilderness.

Having taken ... (Food and Drink | Photo Gallery)
German Measles and a Walk along the Strand Beachfront (2016-07-06) | Believe it or not, a little while ago I came down with German Measles of all things. Sadly for Jessica's sake though, the Gordon's Bay Lötters weren't quite done with German Measles after all - second week into her holiday and bang, a big red ... (Photo Gallery)
Ducks and Play Time at the Dam Park in Strand (2016-07-03) | We used to head out and feed the ducks at Dam Park in Strand (just opposite Strand High School) quite often when Jess was still a baby, but in recent years we've kind of slowed down on doing that for some or other reason. (Maybe ... (Photo Gallery)
