my weekend

hello! did you have a good weekend? I did! We went away with friends to the beautiful seaside village of Arniston, about a 2 hour drive from Cape Town. We relaxed, ate, played in the rock pools with the the kids, laughed and ate some more… somehow the weekend flew past and here we find ourselves back to Monday! But would you like to join Instagram and I for a few special moments which caught my eye over the weekend?


En route to Arniston, you drive through the picturesque town of Napier, a rural farming community set in the rolling hills of the Overberg. This hot pink wheelbarrow masquerading as a succulent planter totally caught my eye at the Napier Farm Stall. As did this vintage tin sign for Joko tea…


We stayed in a beach house directly on the beach which was absolute bliss… the children could safely run on the beach and play in the rock pools while we watched from the deck. We were even surprised by a few whales who came to say hello, their majestic tails waving to us on the beach. Such a treat!


The water has artfully carved out crazy abstract shapes in the rocks and a host of colourful sea creatures call this home…

So after a chilled weekend spent in the company of good friends, it was time to say our goodbyes to Arniston… until next time!road
