We visited with Priscilla at her guest house in Jacobsbaai for the first time last year February, and one year later, we found ourselves once again packing our bags and joining Monty and Cheryl for what turned out to be a thoroughly relaxing weekend at the always welcoming Artists’ Retreat guest house.

It was a pretty short weekend for Chantelle and myself, just Friday and Saturday evening after all, but for little Jess it’ll go on for a little longer – she stayed behind for another three nights with Monty and Cheryl, primarily because they were rather keen to show her off to Bernard and company who are also down for a little holiday break, staying over in the picturesque Paternoster for the week.

The weather was palatable, the entertainment subdued, and the food fantastic (alongside Chantelle’s cupcakes and treats that travelled through with us, Monty braaied on Friday, I braaied on Saturday, and for breakfast we went to the Weskusplek restaurant on Saturday and then enjoyed a guest house breakfast on Sunday courtesy of Priscilla and her mom!).

Jess had fun stealing everyone’s shoes and clomping around in them and like I said, Chantelle and I pretty much just slept in, lazed about and unwound – in other words a weekend of relaxation well spent!
