Lunch at Blaauwklippen … and my 1000th post !!

One thousand posts !!  Cannot believe it !!  Anyway, there it is .. the stats don’t lie.  I thought of doing something special like re- posting my first one, or the 100th, or the 500th, or my favourite post, or the best place we’ve travelled to …

.. or I shall carry on with ‘our Cape visit’ posts 🙂

Blaauwklippen Vineyards in Stellenbosch is one of the oldest wine farms in South Africa

It was an extremely hot day so hubby and I had salads for lunch accompanied by a Blaauwklippen Sauvignon Blanc for me, and a Rose for hubby under the shade of large trees.  That’s how hot it was .. we drank crisp light wines .. and a jug of iced water ..

Next time we’ll do the wine tastings, antique carriage museum and market.  They cater for kiddies, with jungle gyms and a farmyard  (all animals finding shade in the midday heat)
