What I did this weekend ...

We met my two most favourite girls in the whole wide world for a belated wedding celebration in Stanford, a tiny little village about two hours from Cape Town. But first we stopped off in Hermanus for a walk and to watch the whales ...



Then off to Stanford where we walked the dusty streets and found this ...

and this ...

This was taken inside the restaurant (called Mariana's) - I love the big photograph and how they used bulldog clips to hang it ...

I love B &M's wedding rings - sapphires in a gold setting - aren't they pretty?

(The food was excellent, by the way, but I had gobbled mine all up before I thought of taking a picture ... Well, one has one's priorities ...)
The next day I spotted these in Hermanus - I have no idea what they are but they look stunning with the sea as backdrop ...

We spent some time in B & M's garden, which is too beautiful for words ...



and then went back to CT...
Thank you for a lovely weekend, my dears!!

So refreshing! Beautiful shots! As we approach winter up here in the far north these sorts of photos make me feel warm again.

heather - I agree, it is a most beautiful place! You love my life and I love your photography course - we can switch - but only for a day, mind you!
karina - Glad you enjoyed our little bit of the planet!
stephanie - I'm glad you think it is wow! (It is!) Oh,BTW, the ring=two rings - they each have one ...
linda sue - Oh dear, poor you! I think we are are ready to leave winter behind - although today's been pretty chilly & very windy. I'll post some nice summery pics every now and then to warm your heart and chilly toes(or will it only make you jealous?)
kendalee - You probably recognise all the spots! Only thing to do with yearning is to give in to it ...
freshly found - Oh, great fun was had by all (also copious amounts of champagne)! I like the name of the restaurant too, somehow it reminds me of something, I just cannot think what ...
anonymous - Oh, judge them not by this photo, which was taken the day after! The dear girls looked very chic indeed, Parisian chic, I may add...
