Sticky ribs, breakfast with soldiers and sailing on our fathers’ yachts. Kind of…

You kids already know I love ribs. You just can’t do better than short pork ribs, with a sticky, tasty basting… see me eating ribs in Joburg with my bestie here, and at Lefty’s in CT here. And now, we have a strong contender set to snatch the title of ‘best ribs’. Drum roll please, it’s… Fat Cactus, Woodstock! We’d been to Fat Cactus in Mowbray a few times before (even when my Joburg bestie was down for a whirlwind visit, remember? I even went on about how amazing the chipotle sauce was. But golly goodness is having a whole rib basket to yourself a treat! That’s what I did on Saturday, and I’d say that was my weekend highlight. But of course, that’s not all we did… (and of course I didn’t get photos of everything, either) ๐Ÿ˜‰

Reason number one for Blouberg beach being deserted: It was WINDY! Look how my hair was blowing in the breeze! (Note I am bravely standing ankle-deep in the cold cold sea)

Reason number two for Blouberg beach being deserted... the water was FREEZING cold! Look at Husband's face!

To warm up we went for lunch. Here are the Pantlands! Note Frank's glass of yummy pomegranate cidery drink. Most unusual

The rib basket 'snactus'. Crunchy celery sticks add a nice (healthy) crunch. Washed it down with a Milky Bar milkshake, as you do

You can't really see me as I blend in so well with the grey walls and green cacti out front. Lol. This is me eating my fizzer-y post-meal sweet

We popped into the Royal Cape Yacht Club in Cape Town's harbour on our way home. Not quite on my father's yacht, but this is where it'd be, if he had one.

It's been a while since I posted a sunset pic. This one was taken after the sun had gone down - sea is just on the horizon, under the street lights on Marine Drive

Sunday, 5 October 2014: Breakfast at Craft House Eatery, Woodbridge Island

You either get a bowl of flowers or a bowl of toy soldiers on your table at Craft House Eatery. Ours surrounded Husband's pastrami Benedict. Luckily they didn't attempt to eat any. That would have been messy.

I was being healthy on Sunday, so had the 'Bananas and Berries' breakfast. Gee whizz it was delicious, and what a lot I got! Best of all, I was full until lupper

Sadly that’s where I stopped taking photos as I went into ‘relax’ mode when we boogie boarded at Muizenberg (water was still as numbingly cold as it was on Saturday), and later lazed in the sun at Llandudno.

That’s all, folks! As you were ๐Ÿ™‚
