Last year September saw me take the girls up for a weekend away at Pinnacle Point in Mossel Bay, a slightly more out of the ordinary visit than normal given that mom and dad were restricted to home in Bellville (due to mom’s hip replacement) and Chantelle was busy frantically churning out cakes in Gordon’s Bay, meaning that it was just me, my two girls, and my younger brother Ryan inhabiting the great big house for the handful of days.
Obviously we made the most of it (despite the damp, overcast, predominantly grey conditions). Lots of sport on TV, golf cart shenanigans, animal and fynbos spotting in the estate, fish and chips at the Sea Gypsy (as is now customary for any visit to Mossel Bay), Lego building, colouring in, and the highlight of each and every day – a swim in the warm water pool at ATKV Hartenbos.
We also confirmed that scooting around on scooters in such a hilly estate is no fun at all – if you’re little.
A beautiful getaway as always, and just to be sure that we didn’t come home without having seen anything new, I made sure to pack both the up and down trips with lots of sightseeing stops!
