Sundowners and dinner out for a song
What better way to end your working week than with a sundowner?
Another great option in the valley is the Newton Johnson Burger & Beer evening – a Wagyu beef burger and chips with a Folke & Goode beer or a glass of wine for R150.
The regular wine and food pairing at ELL269 is unfortunately sold out – be sure to book for the next one now. Always tasty and viby…and meat eaters…we challenge you to experience their food – it’s certainly not just carrots and lettuce.
The last Stanford Sunset Market of the season is always particularly enjoyable (even when the weather’s icky). Locals gather to enjoy the great local culinary fare, fab wines, art, craft, music and all round family fun. Wrap up warmly and join them on the green.
You’ll taste the best potjiekos ever for R10/R15 and there will music, entertainment, games, and warm Overberg hospitality…and you don’t have to cook. Bring your own drinks.
Jam packed family time filled with fun activities, inspiration and flowers.
A wide range of things to do this Saturday. I wonder how many you can fit in?
Held in celebration of National Museum Day and our rich cultural heritage, they bring history to life and go all out to create a community spirited family day at the most wonderful museum.
And… you are guaranteed that you will get exactly that. There is SO much happening that it’s almost impossible to list everything here so do look at the full programme.
There is something for everyone. From talks and workshops to over 60 stalls and exhibitions, a living museum where you’ll see smithy’s and cobblers at work, pony rides, tractor rides, kiddies yoga, a ‘Heritage and History’ treasure hunt for adults and the Cape Trade Market will also be in full swing with treasures created by artists and crafters from all over the Overberg.
I am always absolutely astounded by what ‘so-called’ disabled people are able to create. It’s inspiring. The entire experience is.
You will meet the crafters, get the warmest welcome, drink delicious coffee from the Beanery, amble through their bountiful wheel-chair friendly permaculture garden and get to buy some of the most gorgeous creations and handmade soaps. Card facilities available!
I can’t wait to see what they’ve been up to. The best thing about it is that you can treat yourself to something special and you are supporting a community that works hard towards self-sustainability.
There is another Open Day on Saturday that is a must for anthophilites (flower lovers). Eikenhoff Nursery, near Stanford, is open for viewing and sales from 9am to 1pm. Another event worthy of a road trip! (Stop off at the Junktique Market in Stanford Village along the way.)
As you drive through…imagine actually walking through all that beauty…think about joining Be Inspired, a Journey on their next slackpacking trip. One of the stopovers is just down the road at Beloftebos. (Their next trip is in June – Book now!)
Get out into Nature!
If you feel like an early, physical, productive morning surrounded by nature then why not do something good for the planet?
You will get a very warm welcome at the Pringle Bay Hack. This group works hard to protect the Fynbos in Pringle Bay and love a bit of help from other nature lovers. It will leave you feeling energised. Proof that the best thing you can do to feel good about yourself is to do some good yourself. Tools are provided.
Bodhi Khaya is hosting a vegetarian lunch which, knowing their resident chef Frank, will be a feast of note. Enjoy wholesome food under ancient trees and then walk the Labyrinth, stroll through the forest or sit in the gardens and enjoy the stillness.
There’s nothing quite as restoring as peace and quiet and a good Sunday lunch.
Whatever you do, have a wonderful weekend, save water and do a rain dance (it’s looking promising).
