A very Cape Christmas

This time of year is when everyone snaps into holiday mode. It’s tough for us to adjust this year though with the move, as so much is still to be decided and we’re exploring our new home city, getting to know the area and how things work here. One thing I love is that there’s so much choice of where to go shopping! And of course the abundance of beaches is amazing.

Christmas this year was spent at my Cape rellies, who we hardly saw when we lived in Jozi – now they’re just 5km down the road! πŸ™‚ We had a wonderful lunch with each ‘family’ providing a starter, main and dessert … thank goodness for those regular beach walks as I sampled absolutely EVERYTHING! Here are a few of my favourite moments of this very Cape Christmas …

It was a great day with delicious food and fun company. Different to the Christmases of past, but something we could easily get used to! πŸ™‚
