Travelling around!

Not much crafting on this side of the world! We have been travelling around, just a little knitting now and again!

We met up with our oldest son for a couple of days in Cape Town, he flew in from London.

So needless to say lots of eating and drinking was done! One of  the days we went on a wine tasting tour! We enjoy our red wine and especially a red wine called Pinotage, that orignated in South Africa.

Our first was our favorite vineyard called Meerlust,  this estate has been growing wine  since 1756, and is known for a red wine called a Rubicon, the Manor House is built in typical Cape Dutch architecture.

The next winery is a new winery, Waterford,  built in a classic Bordeaux chateau of French style, the wine was okay! But from a visual and experience unbelievable!

As it was my husband’s birthday my son and I arranged to take him to dinner to one of our exclusive dinning experiences, at the Tasting Room in Franschoek.  This was a unbelievable experience, we went for the 8 course dinner with the wine pairing!

On our way home on Sunday! Back to normal on Monday!

Love

  1. OK, my simplicity is going to show here. My favorites are the coffee (love that face!) and the knitting. I mean who doesn’t love the simple things. I feel the urge to pull out some yarn and needles, since my quilting is languishing with this awful work schedule, but maybe a few stitches a day.

  2. Glad you’ve had time together as a family. Eight courses! Glad we aren’t expected to cook like that at home.

  3. oldest son? oh my god. i have honestly thought you were like 26. if that is a recent picture you’re using for your profile then DAMN GIRL, amazing genes! haha (i hope this comment isn’t too weird haha)

  4. Great pictures. We lived in Cape Town for a few years but that’s about 15 years ago. I’m sure we went to Meerlust at some point. Enjoy the rest of your fab weekend!

  5. I’ve never been to a winery, although bought many bottles! Sounds lovely – and I agree, I thought you were early twenties lol
