Walking the Girls at Radloff Park in Somerset West (2019-07-21) | Somerset West is scenically a beautiful space. Lying in the Helderberg Basin, surrounded by an amphitheatre of mountains, and squeezed in between the Cape Winelands and False Bay, Somerset West is somewhat our local answer to Cape Town's leafy suburb of Constantia. A good way ... (Nature and Animal Attractions | Photo Gallery)
SCV Wine, Brandy and Beer Tasting at the Barrydale Cellar (2019-07-02) | This is South Africa so of course we try to produce wine pretty much everywhere, and the Klein Karoo is certainly no exception. Situated along the Huisrivier river, right at the entrance to the diminutive town of Barrydale is the Barrydale Cellar, a well known ... (Food and Drink | Photo Gallery)
A Year of life in the Helderberg (2018-12-31) | With 2016 and 2017's photo dumps already up, I now continue making a dent into the large "Unposted Photos" folder on my desktop with 2018's batch. These are all (well mostly) photos snapped as we go about life in the Helderberg basin (Somerset West, Strand ... (Photo Gallery)
A Year of Beach Walks in Gordon's Bay (2018-12-31) | So here I am, slowly but surely whittling down my very large Unposted Photos folder with another 'A Year of' picture dump. I rather enjoy living in a small harbour town and very much doubt that I will ever willingly elect to live far from ... (Nature and Animal Attractions | Photo Gallery)
Coffee and Curios at The Old Jail in Riversdale (2019-07-04) | Continuing our June school holidays adventure, the girls and I moved on from Barrydale, shooting past Algerynskraal, over the Garcia Pass and on to Riversdale, with the final goal being to make it back onto the N2 in order to end up in Mossel Bay. ...

Fun and Facades of GrandWest Casino in Cape Town (2019-06-17) | We were rather enjoying our little break from the girls, having already spent the morning traipsing around Bloubergstrand, taking photos of Table Mountain, visiting Big Bay, and indulging in much coffee and cake at Cafe Blouberg. I then put on the table to Chantelle that ... (Family Attractions | Photo Gallery)
Nature Walk along the Kleinmond Coastal Walkway (2019-04-07) | Kleinmond is another one of those easy to love little coastal towns in the Overberg district, family friendly and perfect for tourist beach getaways. It also happens to be home to a very gentle, short but very scenic coastal walkway, which takes you all the ... (Nature and Animal Attractions | Photo Gallery)
Warm Water Swims and Donuts at ATKV Hartenbos (2019-09-28) | I have already mentioned that last September I took Jessica and Emily up with me to Mossel Bay for a couple of days at Pinnacle Point with Ryan. Unfortunately the weather didn't exactly play along for our trip away from home, but nevertheless we made ... (Family Attractions | Photo Gallery)
Koi and Coffee at The Blue Cow in Barrydale (2019-07-02) | For the June school holidays last year we found ourselves spending a bit of time in Barrydale at the relaxing Warmwaterberg Spa setup, and seeing as this is somewhat of a tradition by now, we obviously made time for a coffee and cake stop at ...

Ducks and Noodles at Sonstraal Dam in Durbanville (2019-07-17) | We obviously have a few of our own nice places to head out for a walk here in Gordon's Bay (aka we live by the sea), but I have to say that I do miss having easy access to the very scenic Sonstraal Dam in ...

Terrance and Joanne get Married at Nooitgedacht Estate in Stellenbosch (2020-01-25) | Our group is all at that age where one doesn't really get invited to weddings any more - at this stage pretty much all of the friends circle is married off and all our kids are still very young - so it generated much excitement ...

USA 2019 - 01 Journey from Cape Town to the Hampton Inn in Washington DC (2019-10-24) | When I left for Washington DC the handy direct flight from Cape Town hadn't yet launched, so as per usual, it was first the time wasting hop of having to head up to Johannesburg before I could finally leave South Africa's sunny borders behind. My Touchwork-organized ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
