Lemon Meringue at Die Kloof Padstal in Montagu (2020-10-26)

Also known as Route 62 Restaurant and Farm Stall, Die Kloof Padstal is probably one of the more famous farm stall stops in the Langeberg area. Literally the first building that you encounter on the left as you enter Montagu… Continue Reading →

A Stroll around Door de Kraal Dam in Bellville (2021-01-30)

The family and I felt like a bit of a walk about Majik Forest in the Door de Kraal suburb of Bellville the other day, so we hopped into the car and headed out to the Northern Suburbs via the… Continue Reading →

McDonalds at Poinsettia Park in Somerset West (2020-08-22)

I am not fond of McDonalds fast food to say the least. If we absolutely do have to have fast food then the oily (but tasty) mess that is KFC could probably be classified as my favourite fast food option,… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

Water Level of the Berg River Dam in Franschhoek (2017-08-13)

Every time that we enter Franschhoek via Stellenbosch, a large mound/structure off in the distance on the right hand side catches my eye, I mutter to Chantelle, “I wonder what that is?”, and then continue to drive on into main… Continue Reading →

The Drought-affected water level of Theewaterskloof Dam near Villiersdorp (2017-03-05)

Six months ago, on an impromptu Sunday afternoon drive, Chantelle and I passed by Theewaterskloof Dam and of course stopped to take photos of the very noticeably almost empty dam. (In case you aren’t familiar with it, the Theewaterskloof Dam,… Continue Reading →

Rowing on Eikenhof Dam at the Elgin Grabouw Country Club (2017-03-11)

Located in the Kogelberg biosphere region and sitting right next to the tranquil waters of the Eikenhof Dam in Grabouw, the Elgin Grabouw Country Club, which was founded in 1987, serves as the area’s local recreational sporting and social hub…. Continue Reading →
