Lunch at Antonio’s Pizza Place in Gordon’s Bay (2017-03-16) Photo Gallery | Restaurants 12 AUG 2017

Back in March this year, Jessica and I embarked upon a nice long weekend away to Pinnacle Point, Mossel Bay. In fear of the rain spiders that lurk there over this time of year, Chantelle opted not to join us, and so, the day before we were to leave, we decided to have a special lunch for some Chantelle and Jessie time, i.e. sans the mommy attention hoarding Emily!

Having heard people talk favourably about the place in the past, we decided to give Antonio’s Pizza Place a shot for the first time.

Tucked in between the Krystal Beach Hotel and the more famous Bertie’s Moorings restaurant on the boardwalk section of the Harbour Island development (also home to a particularly good Ocean Basket offering), Antonio’s Pizza Place is known for serving up particularly cheesy pizza – which turns out is absolutely true about them.

In all honesty, I’m not a major fan of such a lot of cheese on my pizza, but given the view that comes along with it, it is hard to say that a visit to the vibey Antonio’s doesn’t make for a nice outing.

As it turned out, that particular Thursday ended up being quite a busy day for myself and the girls – After picking up Emily from school it was time for some play at the always pleasant Pollock Park in Gordon’s Bay, followed by a nice sunset stroll along Strand beach.

(Complete with hilarious no walking construction sign in the middle of the sea).

Anyway, back to Antonio’s. In summary, expect loads of melted cheese with a pretty pleasant view.

Photo Gallery: V&A Waterfront Trundle (2013-10-13) Photo Gallery 21 OCT 2013

Staying at home on a weekend is never fun, which is exactly why the Sunday before last (after a busy Saturday of first little Devon’s birthday party in Constantia, then little Evanlynne’s birthday party in Durbanville, and finally a big family and friends waterblommetjie potjie kos and rugby get together with the Montgomery Clan, Bernard and his family, as well as Retha and Miguel, in Bellville), we slipped out of the Montgomery Clan Stronghold (obviously, we spent the evening there) and headed down to the V&A Waterfront with the primary objective being for Chantelle to check out their much touted food market.

Sadly the food market was fairly disappointing, but thankfully the little excursion was not, and all in all we enjoyed our little trip through to that side of Cape Town (in other words, we don’t normally head out that way!).

Alex Maleev: Daredevil Vol. 2 #62 (2004) Comic Book Art | Comic Books 06 AUG 2011

With fan favourite Brian Michael Bendis’ hand firmly on the typewriter, Daredevil was treading a lot of murky ground, as the Marvel Knights imprint continued to make a statement for itself amongst mature readers.

Issue 62 might have seen Alex Maleev draw the Widow and Daredevil team-up to take Jigsaw down, but that didn’t stop him from also coming up with a fantastically moody and dark cover to complement the book, featuring a very broody Daredevil in front of a clock tower!
