Wow, it was warm – 40 degrees

I had to drive through to Stellenbosch earlier today to go fetch my son at varsity.  This was taken when I stopped at a robot.  Just after this the reading turned to 40 degrees but unfortunately I could not take another photo.

Cape Town summer sunset!!

Went to a braai at a friend’s house and this is the sunset I captured:

Now come tell me this is not spectacular. After a great summer evening like that, I woke up to typical Cape Town winter rain in the middle of summer.  What is it with the weather in Cape Town this year?

Why I love summer …

Yesterday morning I went to brunch with a friend and her kids.  We ended up at Hammers and Spanners which is in Willowbridge just outside Tygervalley. We sat outside under the great summer sun looking out over the river below.  The kids could run around in the nursery which is at the back and look at all the animals that they have there.

The food was not anything to write home about.  Bit expensive and the portions was real small.  But the service was great, friendly and the owner made a point of starting friendly chats with everybody.  And the company was great.

This is what make’s summer great.  Being able to enjoy the outdoors and not being cooped up between four walls.

Hope the wind stay away today, want to pack a cooler and go to the beach this afternoon.
