Depart: Stellenbosch; Arrive: Glentana – Part.8

We spent a beautiful day on the beach….. 😀 It was super windy (which I dislike), but the heat was soooooo intense, I think we would have suffered without that muscled breeze!!!

Enjoying our lazy day on the beach…
Doing our “flexi-toes” !!! 🙂

Without realizing it, we spent a good 4 hours of doing sudoku, reading our books & lazing under our umbrellas!!! It was pure bliss!!! 🙂 This was our last day in Stellenbosch… & it was a beautiful one!!! 😀

The next morning we set out to meet up with our friends in Glentana… we were super excited to spend the next couple of days of doing nothing, spending hours on the beach & having a good time!!!

On route, we decided to stop at Lourensford Wine Farm for a breakfast (to early to do the “wine-thing” 😉 )… It is one of my favourite wineries ever…. it is wonderfully beautiful!!!!

It did not disappoint…. & He-who-thinks-he’s-boss felt a pang of regret that we did not visit here sooner…. (I told him so 😉 )… but nevertheless, we had a great breakfast on a stunning farm!!!! 😀

From here we set out on our 5 hour drive to Glentana… 🙂 I forgot to add that we scorched ourselves on the beach the day before…. so bad that we had to put towels over our legs to protect it from the sun…. It was Ouchie!!!! 😀

Our “towel protection”…

 We arrived in Glentana… super stoked…. a few hours later…. We had a great day catching up with our friends… Enjoying the feeling of complete relaxation!!!!

My beautiful rose from HWTHB!!! 🙂

The next day was Christmas day…. & true to our beautiful South Africa, the day was sunny, warm & inviting!!!! We spent the entire morning (and most of the afternoon) playing games on the beach, reading, sleeping & just generally being…. 🙂

Setting up our Gazebo…
After beach mode…

Also true to Christmas day in South Africa…. later in the afternoon it started raining… Oh my, how I love this gorgeous day!!! 😀

The girls setting up the table & preparing other dishes…

 We had a fantastic dinner…. great friends… awesome conversation…. yummy yummy food!!!! Interesting fact for the evening… we did not leave the dinner table until well after 24h00… we played card games, drank wine & had a great time!!!! 😀

Great wines…
Playing card games until the wee hours of the night…

What an unforgettable evening/day… it was spent with truly fantastic people!!! Can’t wait to do it again!!! 😀 **

Series: Approaching the Toll!!!

I feel super guilty because I have still not processed my pictures of my eventful weekend (if I have to be even more honest – I have not even downloaded them from my camera 😦 )! I want to promise that I’ll do them asap, but I know I can’t do that, seeing that an equally eventful weekend lies ahead!!! Oh well, just more stories & photos to share when I do eventually get around to them!!! So please….. hold your thumbs that it will be sooner rather than later!!! 😉

In the meantime, I do have a story to share!!! I quickly downloaded the photos from my little snapper (if you can recall I got this for my birthday a few weeks ago)!!! I (over)processed three of these photos, but with good reason… I have seen many of these types of photos & loved every one of them – don’t ask me why, I think it just looks cool!!!! 😀

Last night I had a quick opportunity to take a few of these while approaching a toll gate on the N4 highway!!! This was then obviously taken last night at around 22h40… as I’ve mentioned – things have been crazy hectic lately!!! 😦

Let me know what you think!!!! Do you also have a childish fascination with these photos?? 🙂 **
