Full moon rising over Cape Town, 1 July 2015
Can’t believe it, it is Friday again.
Enjoy your day.
It was a great Father’s Day lunch we enjoyed two weeks ago at the Eikendak Wine Cellars near Stellenbosch. Upon arrival one is greeted by a sure sigh that there is no shortage of wine available.
Albeit that it was a chilly day the weather did not prevent the nature fundis sitting outside enjoying the winter sun while indulging in the offerings from the kitchen.
Let us face it the Western Cape offers something for all tastes.
Enjoy a blessed day.
Driving is a pleasure, but at times it can be annoying and a nerve taxing experience. I find the tailgater the most annoying of all rotten drivers. For example if one travels at 75 kilometres per hour (+/-46 miles per hour ) you travel at 20 meters per second and this fact should have one realise the importance of keeping a safe distance behind the car ahead of you. If the front car in the pic below suddenly had to brake in an emergency like a stupid pedestrian running across the road (a popular past time here) the car behind would have slammed straight into it. I cannot see how that driver would have had enough time to change the foot from the gas peddle to the brake peddle and avoid a collision.
Those two cars were travelling at 75 km/h. The reason I know is it was in a 60 km/h zone and I have to cough up a R400 (+/- US$40) fine. Smile and have a super Saturday.
Recalling Father’s Day on Sunday past I could not help recalling the meal I had. The quality of the food was superb, but regretfully the quantity overshadowed my capacity and I had to send a dirty plate back.
Veal cordon blue, scrumptious
After the meal and on the house a delicious grappa was served
During the time we spent at the lunch table the weather partially cleared allowing us this view of the Stellenbosch mountains seen from the Eikendal cellars where we met for the lunch. A true sign of being winter is the brown leafless vineyards in the foreground.
Friday again and getting ready for the weekend. Enjoy your day.
Came across this baby in Woodstock. By the look of things the owner is in the process of restoring it. No indication what model it is, but my wild guess is that it could be a De Soto or Plymouth from a far gone yesteryear.
Still raining and cold, but I won’t complain the dams and reservoirs need it.
Enjoy a super day.
