Sunday in the Fairest Cape

Lunch in Noordhoek at Rosie and D's airy house through which a warm breeze blew through the glass doors open to the view. Outside, a beautiful vegetable garden, fenced for shelter for when the breeze turns serious.

Kale, giant broccoli plants, Thai basil to flavour our Thai-inspired and fragrant meal. The basil makes me miss my summer terrace.

Post prandial wire chair making. All you need is a lot of sparkling wine, for materials.

Lily got serious.

Not as easy as it looks.

That's my wonky sample on the right.

I don't know when this pastime took hold, but after every lunch I have been to in Cape Town, the boules balls come out. The slope provided a challenge, but no guinea fowl were hurt in the game.

The behatted ones.

I think our next lunch invitation may have to read BYOB.

Bring your own balls.


  1. What a perfect way to end a meal...! When are you home Marie?

  2. Marie - Thanks for these lovely blog posts. Brings some sunshine into grey days here in the northern hemisphere. Treasure you photos also!

  3. So if you can see downhill a bit, they have to be at the very bottom of Chapman's Peak. Funny how I can almost picture the place...

  4. Vince - we're on the crest of the valley (backed up against old-age home!) overlooking Noordhoek beach and Chapmans Peak. Next time, come too! Marie - as always, thank you :)

  5. I followed Rosie's cooking progress for the lunch on Twitter - it all sounded fantastic!
