My Weekend Wanderings series has taken a bit of a back seat of late and I actually really miss it so I’ve decided I need to revive it. The idea is that it’s a post that goes up every Monday (well, that’s the aim!) to give you a visual snippet of one aspect of my weekend – mostly pretty pics of even prettier places that I have enjoyed and think you might too. Living in Cape Town, we’re never short of scenic scenery (Did someone say “spoilt”??) Think lots of outdoor family fun – wine farms, restaurants, markets etc. I usually keep the text to a minimum and have a short intro about where and what we did but then let the pics do the talking….
We often head out into the Winelands for these “family fun days” but this time we kept things local and chose instead to explore a hidden gem of a wine farm right on our doorstep (literally door to door is less than 10 mins!) Constantia Glen is on the Constantia Nek road to Hout Bay and we had never been before – criminal if you think we have both lived in Cape Town for over 30 years. Anyway we finally got there and it was so worth it! A beautiful, sunny Sunday afternoon spent with good friends enjoying wine, cheese, biltong and bread under the umbrellas overlooking the rolling vineyards and up to the majestic mountains…
Constantia Glen is pretty close to heaven if you ask me!
