Family Sunday roast for Llewellyn's 41st Birthday

It's the birthday month for just about all of us - Llewellyn on the 2nd August, his twins on the 9th August and Dave on the 24th. So here's Llewellyn tucking into his birthday cake baked by his kids, whilst we also enjoyed a Sunday roast that Dave prepared with yorkshire pudding!!

Cape Town weekend

We took time out last weekend and paid a quick visit to Cape Town. This is the former house of Simon van der Stel, first govenor of the Cape in the 1600s, still a wine farm and also a museum.

Groot Constantia wines are well respected and we spent some time visiting local farms and enjoying the wines and Cape sunshine.

Edinburgh Sean

Guest Sean from Edinburgh joins us in the Guesthouse pub during his 6-months travels through India, Cambodia, Vietnam and South Africa. This is Sean's first visit to South Africa and he was welcoming the cooler winter air compared to the high temperatures of India's heat.

Hot Winter in Durban

Durban was stunning for the running of the Durban July Handicap yesterday. Glorious sunshine and great outfits. Llewellyn did some handiwork and added a crown to our velvet waitcoats and my kids Mark and Kate-Lynn joined us for the fun. The running of the 13th Race (naked guys) added some amusement and I managed to take a video clip which I will load on YouTube later.
