This blog post should be subtitled “Showing some of the best of CT to my oldest bestie”, so consider it done!
My oldest, dearest friend (yes, she was my bridesmaid 7 years ago and yes, we’re going on 23 years of friendship now, jeepers that makes me feel like a wrinkly prune) was on our shores last weekend and it did my soul good to see her – especially as it was both my parents’ birthdays and they were still out at sea! Sob! (They’re home safe and sound now so you can dry your tears at least). More on that in next post.
The weather must have heard Shells was coming as it was on its best behaviour, all twinkly seas, light breezes and shimmery skies, so we did a spot of sightseeing too…
Saturday, 9 August 2014: McD’s breakfast, lunch at Hout Bay’s La Cuccina, drive along Chapman’s Peak and late-lunch at Fat Cactus, Mowbray
I know, I know. I’ve said before that we like a good quality weekend breakfast. But we also plan ahead and have a cheapie if we have a big weekend lunch or dinner on the cards. And so breakfast from our closest McDonald’s drivethru was exactly right – a cheese McMuffin with free coffee for R16.50 is certainly a steal.

That’s all for now, folks – it’s been a busy week so we’re going to have another relaxing weekend, watch this space!
