Unreal Scarborough sea, sitting at Slangkop lighthouse and patting Imhoff Farm camels

Tomorrow is husband’s 36th birthday, so I am posting this now as shall surely be spending quality time with him at the usual ‘blog post creation’ time of the week.

Hard to believe it’s already the end of January, 1/12 of the year has flown by in the blink of an eye.

Here are highlights of the past week…

Saturday, 23 January 2016: Breakfast at Saint’s, pretending to be on the cover of National Geographic

Cappuccino at Saint's
Saturday was a hot, lazy day, Mine got off to a good start with this cappuccino at Saint’s in Big Bay.
Salmon eggs ben at Saint's
Husband had the salmon eggs ben and a Cola, of course. The logo next to his face proves we were at Saint’s. I had the feta-scrambled eggs with toast, unpictured.
Posing at yellow National Geographic Table Mountain frame
This photo frame is 10 steps from Saint’s so we walked across and Husband happily snapped away.
Leigh at Table Mountain
Zoomed in, without the frame. Click here for a reminder of our Winter version of this photo.
Dacschund on shoulder
As Mum and Dad were off to Shelley Point on Sunday we visited for lupper on Saturday this week. Bassie loves being carried on her grampa’s shoulder like this, as she’s then technically the tallest person in the room.
Dog on chair
Bertie was happy to sit on a comfy chair and watch his sister parade around on grampa.

Sunday, 24 January 2016: Breakfast at On the Rocks, sightseeing along the coast

On the Rocks, Blouberg
On Sunday morning we decided to breakfast at On the Rocks, right on the beachfront, where we had celebrated Dad’s birthday a few years ago. Note my slight sunburn from the day before.
French toast at On the Rocks
Here is my berry-and-ice cream French toast. Very yummy.
Breakfast pan at On the Rocks
Husband had the ‘breakfast pan’.
Old boats in Hout Bay
It was set to be an adventure/explore day, so off we headed for Hout Bay and walked all the way from the one harbour to the other.
Gull in Hout Bay
A solitary gull at the greeny sea.
Sea lions sleeping
Always most amusing to see the sea lions sprawled of their own accord on the ‘Seal Alert sea rescue’ boat.
Smelly seal in Hout Bay
This guy looked – and smelled – like he needed a bit of a rescue…
Camel at Imhoff Farm
Continuing on our road trip, we had to stop and pat the camels at Imhoff Farm.

Me doing the exact same thing.
Slangkop Lighthouse
Then we repeated the process at Slangkop Lighthouse. Here is Husband’s version…
Slangkop Lighthouse
And here is mine. Pretty as a picture!
Scarborough Cape Town sea.
Look at this absolutely ridiculous sea colour near Scarborough. No photo filters, promise.
Amstel at Dixies
Rounding out the trip we stopped at Dixies near Simon’s Town/Fish Hoek for a refreshment break. Here is Husband’s Amstel draught – I opted for a coffee shake.
Mexicana pizza at Dixies
We shared this Mexicana – completely doused in Tabasco sauce, of course.

Tuesday, 26 January 2016: Punjab Express

Chair in Punjab Express, Parklands
On Tuesday we stopped at the recently opened Punjab Express after work to try their tikka chicken. Was very tasty, and I loved this chair.

That’s all, folks! Look forward to Husband’s birthday celebrations in my next update. πŸ™‚
