Ducks and Jungle Gyms at the Dam Park in Strand (2017-01-28) | I love the fact that we have a proper duck pond as a municipal park here in Strand. The appropriately named Dam Park is situated right across from the Strand High School and offers a nice green space in the middle of Strand suburbia. There is ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
Celebrating at the Lekke Neh Kids Carnival on Weltevreden Estate in Stellenbosh (2017-01-08) | We only discovered the beautifully restored, historic Weltevreden Estate last year. Packed with all manner of interesting art and sculptures, the classic Cape Dutch manor house and homestead is home to a brilliant little eatery that trades by the fun name of Lekke Neh, a ...

Feeling the Vibe at the Root 44 Market in Stellenbosch (2016-11-20) | The Root44 (or Root 44 depending on what marketing material you look at) market is one of those unusually nice markets precisely because so much money has been thrown in behind it. (Also, the fact that its surrounds are so damn pretty doesn't hurt either!) There is ... (Markets | Photo Gallery)
Lunch at Skilpadvlei Wine Estate in Stellenbosch (2016-10-20) | Way back in October last year, on a beautiful and windless Thursday afternoon, Chantelle and I picked the girls up from their respective playschools and headed out towards the Stellenbosch winelands, making our way to the super popular Polkadraai Strawberry Farm for an enjoyable strawberry ...

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 ... (Food and Drink | Photo Gallery)
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 ...

Driving over the Bain's Kloof Pass to Wellington (2016-12-11) | Chantelle and I enjoyed a weekend away in Tulbagh towards the end of last year. We decided to head home via Wellington for a change, and that led to a decision to tackle the rocky Bain's Kloof Pass, a road that I literally haven't been ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
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 ... (Food and Drink | Photo Gallery)
