Last weekend was not one for the surfers, dog-walkers and sunbathers of the Cape. Instead of soaking up the rays you were more likely to be blown away by a screeching gust of wind. And so it was a weekend of doing indoors-things – especially as I was deep in the middle of an awful head cold. That’s why I don’t have many photos to share, as most of my free time was spent napping and hogging the heat from the fire…
But of course the doggies don’t let one sit by the fire by one’s self for long:
And when hubby is tasked with making a coffee masterpiece like this one:
He gets creative with the whipped cream can so the doggies can have some fun, too.
But I digress. You’re here to read about our weekend jaunts, and so, without further ado – on Saturday morning my kind parents treated us to breakfast at Cassia at Nitida, one of my favourites for French Toast (especially if you add the berry coulis to the crispy bacon, such a delicious flavour combo!):
Dad had the ‘healthier’ option of waffle with cream:
After a few naps the breakfast had worn off and we decided to continue the ‘bangers and mash adventures’ as the weather was drizzly and cold. As my face was drizzly and cold too, we didn’t want to venture too far for long, so we ended up at the Brazen Head in Seaside Village, Big Bay. It was a win! Husband was even conveniently dressed in the appropriate colours of the Stormers AND the Cheetahs, both at the same time, as the Super Rugby teams battled it out on the big screen before our very eyes. See for yourself:
I had the potato skins – a rather large portion for the price (R39) and topped with cheese and sour cream with bacon bits, which is often an added expense. That, coupled with the bangers n mash, a hot chocolate, a Caste Draught, Kilkenny AND a tip came to less than R200, and left our tummies purring. A much better bet than last week’s pricy-yet-tasty visit to the Fireman’s Arms.
Then it was home for more TLC from the doggies. Last but not least, the weekend sunset, for your viewing pleasure:
