Driving along Chapmans Peak and taking in the view

We make a point of driving along Chapmans Peak whenever we’re in Cape Town. I absolutely love the views from the road. This has to be one of my most favourite places in Cape Town. This year we drove along the road as we followed the route of the 56km Two Oceans race that L was due to run a few days later. We always find an excuse 😉 I know this is one of the toughest parts of the Two Oceans route, but this is really why I want to run the race one day. I’ve cycled the road (we...

A drive to Cape Point Reserve and the climb to the lighthouse

You always have to find the time to take a long drive along the scenic roads around Cape Town. This year we finally got to drive to Cape Point. The kids hadn’t been there yet, even though we’d driven past a few times. This year, we were clever about the idea. We got there early and chose a day during the week where there were no public holidays. It was the right plan, because there wasn’t a queue at the gate when we got there, unlike the long snaking queues when we left a few hours later. You could actually...

A lunch at Rhodes Memorial with a gorgeous view

When we go to Cape Town, we try to visit places that the kids haven’t seen yet. We decided to have lunch at Rhodes Memorial on our first day for that reason. L and I had been there a few times. In fact I used to drive there regularly just to sit and take the view in, when I used to travel often for work before the kids were born. I just love going there, just not sure why we haven’t taken the kids there yet! I’ve just seen quite a few reviews for the restaurant so we really...

[Photo essay] Watching Two Oceans ultra marathon

As you know by now, I didn’t qualify for this year’s ultra marathon (I injured my foot and knee). I was pretty bleak about it, but Lance qualified and we did have a holiday booked in Cape Town already… so off I went to watch Two Oceans Ultra Marathon. I know you’re going to ask, so I’ll answer it now. The levels of FOMO were crazy but abated during the day when the icy wind was howling around us. I was pretty happy to be wrapped up in a down jacket! It was also pretty cool waiting with a good...

Trenery AW17 collection launch in Rosebank

I’m not actually too sure how I got invited to the Autumn Winter launch of the Woolworth’s Trenery range in Rosebank this evening… but I’m sure glad I was. Sam and I went along to the evening function that was held in the Atrium on the Keyes Art Mile in Rosebank. What a fabulous event! We don’t often get to go to evenings like this, so we really did enjoy ourselves. From the champagne and wine to the canapés and the amazing decor, it really was quite a treat to be there. And then the fashion show started! I really...
