Last weekend, the weather was sunny and mild so we spent lots of time out and about, as you’ll see from the pics below…
Friday, 13 July 2018: Warding off the winter chill at work
The winter chill returned last Friday, so much so that I wore my fingerless gloves to type at work. I also gladly accepted the orange my sweet deskmate offered.
Saturday, 14 July 2018: News Cafe earlybirds and beachview burgers at Jerry’s
We started our weekend with earlybird breakfast specials at News Cafe on Marine Drive – the full English for me, the eggs benedict for Husband.
Later that day we were doing weekend chores at N1 City, where I snapped these brightly coloured cream doughnuts. Was almost tempted to have one, but…
I knew we were heading to Jerry’s for an early dins so kept my appetite for it. See Husband’s ‘drunken chicken’ burger with skinny fries and my cheesy ‘heart attack’ with sweet potato fries. Also see Husband’s glass of red and my wild berry shake.
View from our table at Jerry’s, Table View. Chilly, but gorgeous.
Aww. Bertie looked so proud of himself for getting a hug from his dad that evening.
Little Miss Bassie was equal parts suspicious and jealous, but also received lots of TLC.
Sunday, 15 July 2018: Melkbos Kitchen breakfast and doggy beach walks
The weather was bright and beautiful again on Sunday so we took a little drive for breakfast. See the calm sea of Melkbosstrand.
Melkbos Kitchen looked most appealing, so that’s where we ate. See our flat whites, Husband’s eggs benedict and my apple-ginger flapjack stack. Close-up to follow…

This was the beautiful empty road later that day – it just shouts of ‘Sunday afternoon drive in the country!’
Later that afternoon the wind had died down, so it was perfect weather to take the doggie for beach walkies.
Sweet Bertie at Kreeftebaai. If you look closely you’ll see he is Very Wet as he loves to swim doggy-paddle along the shore and then sprint up and down the coast, barking at sea birds.
Sea birds in flight, soon after Bertie started barking at them.
Sweet little Bassie also enjoys a brisk trot but prefers to stay dry, for the most part.
See the quiche and mini sausages we snacked on at Husband’s parents’ house that afternoon. The doggies were delighted when my parents popped in for a few minutes, too. See Bassie nestled between me and Mum, Bertie asleep on the couch against his grampa’s leg, and the chocolate cake Mum rustled up in the microwave when we visited later that evening.
If you’ve been active on social media this week, you’ll know this also happened…
That’s all, folks! Have a happy weekend 🙂
