Hang in there, lots of photo's...
This was my favourite art gallery. It even had work of one of my favourite artists, Hildegard.
A stop for lunch at a place called Feast. One of those places that just did everything right.
He is so great with photo's these days.
And on again, more shops to browse...
Sights to see, like a horsecart through town..
More vintage stores...
A reminder of how some of our pioneering fore-fathers got here. And old Oxwagon.
(My Mom's family was from the area).
Lush new leaves on the Acorn trees and the peaceful sound of turtle doves.
The highlight for the boys: an old fashioned sweet store.
And then, by late afternoon we were tired and ready to head back to our sleep-over destination..
Maccauvlei on Vaal (more about it tomorrow)
A stroll around the Golf course (it was very quiet).
These trees reminded me of one of our favourite books, the classic Winnie the Pooh stories.
The evening we had the diningroom all to ourselves. As we waited for the (really great) food, I so loved just sitting with the boys, listening to their jokes and stories. A new phase coming where they will really be contributors to the conversation, on many dining together experiences to come, I hope.
Not our ordinary Saturday in the Life. But a really great get-away.
