Oh my hat it’s a going to be a gobsmackingly gorgeous day in the Overberg!
The air is crisp and everything is alive with colour after the early morning rain.
Thank goodness, because people all over the Overberg have been preparing for visits by cyclists, art lovers, wine aficionados, foodies and flower fanatics.
There’s the last weekend of the Elgin Open Gardens, the annual Elim Wine Festival, a bunch of mountain bikers heading from Gordon’s Bay over the mountains to Onrus, markets bursting with craft, food, coffee and happiness and a host of other events.
Don’t leave the Overberg this weekend without doing one of these things…
- Having an Apple Pie milkshake or tasting the new pomegranate Everson’s Cider at Peregrine.
- Buying some olde world sausage or the tastiest pork pie (try it with a Fraser’s Folly beer) from Sue at the Elim Wine Festival.
- Taking your kids off to the Open Day at the brand spanking new Pringle Bay Fire Station on Saturday. (Yes…they managed to fight a fire and organise a fun day for you all at the same time!)
- Sipping (or slurping) one of the new range of milkshakes (Caramel Popcorn, REAL Strawberry, Melktert…!) at the Milkwood in Onrus and watch the FNB Wine2Whales riders cross Onrus Beach on the last leg of their weekend ride.
- Trying not to get lost in rapture whilst exploring the Elgin Open Gardens.
- Tasting the new ales at Old Potter’s Inn & Brewhouse in Greyton – Plaas Japie, City Slicker, Rooinek and Flower Child – the new craft brew on the block.
- Taking a random turn down a dirt road to see where it takes you.
Get out there and enjoy some #OverbergMagic!
