short but sweet (weekend)

Last week ended with a wonderful surprise, a little Christmas parcel sent by a dear friend finally arrived and it made the end of my Friday a memorable one, Thanks Joan for all the wonderful things you send us, love it all!!!



On Friday I went out with some friends to celebrate our friend Emma's birthday, we had a great time at a new place, Karoo. It was a nice night with good friends, good food and good spirits!

Me, Emma (the BD girl) and Jen.

Saturday was my morning out with Yanique.

We truly had a great time together, I had promised to take her to Spots public beach where you can access a cave that is right in front of the water.

I discover this cave through my husband, who took me there back when we were just dating.

The thing with this cave is that you can only access to it is via the water (unless you know somebody that lives one the two houses that share that little part of the beach), so if the sea is rough then it's not very easy to get there.

Fortunately for us, on Saturday the weather and the water conditions were great, so we had no problem reaching the cave.

After visiting the cave, we walked a little further down and found a "sort of " road that leads nowhere? It was a nice little wooded area, sort of a secret road.

Finally after swimming back to the beach where we left out things, I lay down to read a bit of my book and Yanique walked to the dock where a man was fishing.

After a while she came back to show me the fisherman's catch of the day... a peacock flounder!

nice catch!
Also on Saturday afternoon I purchased a new Kipling Duffel bag and I am very happy with it, so I have already started packing a bit of things I am taking as presents.

 

The rest of the weekend was very relaxing at home, started a new crochet project (my very first scarf) and of course enjoyed my "ool".


Hope you had a nice weekend and an even better week ahead!!!

It sounds like a wonderful weekend, and the pictures speak for themselves. Yanique looks more and more happy, and isn´t it great to discover a secret place together? :-) I´ve spend most of the weekend being ill, but am back to work now, whilst SNOW has finally come to Denmark :-))

I agree, Yanique looks more and more happy. I discovered that beach using Google Earth, and I discovered the cave when I discovered the beach. There used to be two beaches but now the sand connects them.

I can actually understand why Yanique wanted to go swimming... it looks bliss! Could truly do with a week of that. We've got record low temperatures here (minus 15 degrees and snow) so I can't wait for sun and still crystal clear water.
P.s. Have you read "The Secret Life of Bees" before??
