A Grand Day Out

We did the touristy thing today and headed out to Simondium, on the outskirts of Franschhoek.


A quick stop at Dalewood Fromagerie for some of their award winning Huguenot cheese was followed by a visit to Solms Delta,where we were helped out by the chatty and informative Leon.


Then on via Vrede en Lust – lovely architecture, disappointing wines – for lunch in The Glasshouse at Babylonstoren. Because when it’s 43C in the shade, a long walk through some kitchen gardens is exactly what you need. Lunch was exactly what I needed though and it was really good.
And then home on the chaotic N1 and straight into the pool and a cold beer.

My camera is on enforced leave at the moment getting repaired, so I’m relying on my phone to record the holiday. It’s ok, but it’s not as good as my camera. That said, my camera isn’t great at making phone calls, so I guess all’s fair etc etc.
