Weekly Winners : 7 – 13 June

Keep the light on, Henri …

Somerset West

.. ‘cos we’ll be back …
to watch intricately beaded baubles …

being strung together with Swaroski crystals and the tiniest seed beads ..

… that look like jewelled raindrops on the window pane ..

Cape Town from Southern Sun The Cullinan
And to sample the wines squeezed from plump grapes picked by the basketful ….
.. and matured in barrels …
Kanonkop Wine Estate
…. bottled and stored in cellars until ready to drink …
… or shipped in crates to destinations …

… far and wide .. like the branches of the old oak trees ….

…. that were planted when traditional Cape Dutch gabled buildings were erected and form part of the Cape landscape …

Where sleeping lions …

… are embroidered onto the placemats ….

… and scenery is so breathtaking that it looks like a painting …
.. and where one can gaze over the autumn hues of the vineyards to the mountains beyond shrouded in clouds …

… and ‘after-a-few’ …… one can get quite dizzy …

Art gallery, Kanonkop Wine Estate (beautiful large glass bowl)
…. so wave the white flag and surrender!!!
Rest a while …
…. ooops … ssshhh … keep sleeping …

… until the flight is called which will take off with the view of the side of Table Mountain covered with it’s ‘table cloth’ …

… and wing it’s way over Khyaletsha and Mitchell’s Plain with False Bay and the mountains surrounding Cape Town in the distance …

….. yes .. we’ll be back.
