Throwback Thursday : 4 years ago – 23 July 2011

It was fours years ago today, hubby and I were in Somerset West, for a few days.  It must have been a weekend.   My dear SIL Kathy had been diagnosed with breast cancer and was going through chemo, as a result of which she had lost her hair

My hubby must have driven up to Hermanus on this particular day as he was not with us when Kathy, Ian and I went for coffee and a walk-about in Stellenbosch.  We had an awesome day with lots of laughs!!   I remember it being quite windy and we were laughing about the possibility of Kathy’s wig being blown off her head and flying down the road 🙂

I had borrowed Jeanette’s 50 mm lens for the short trip to get the ‘feel’ of hubby’s Canon, by using different settings without zooming.

Beautiful buildings in Stellenbosch …

It wasn’t the best lens to use for these gorgeous buildings, so I reverted back to my pocket Panasonic  …

That evening we went wine and food pairing at Rust en Vrede.  What an amazing evening!!!   Daniella joined us as Kathy wasn’t feeling well

Kathy is again fighting cancer, sadly, but is always up-beat, positive and strong.  An inspirational and amazing woman, who has taken over a huge junk of the running of Ian’s factory.  Definitely keeping her on her toes !!!  🙂 🙂 🙂   Love you lots and lots and more xxx
