Another week has come and passed, and here we are again, looking back at the past seven days’ highlights…
Saturday, 9 April 2016: Foodlover’s Market breakfast, Espana paella and Burgundy Estate sunsets
Ha! This was too funny not to snap a pic of. While walking through our local Foodlover’s Market on Saturday morning Husband struck a pose near these marked-down Easter chocs. ‘Foiled again!’
Once we reached the eating area we ordered my cafe latte right away.
Husband peppered up his omelette and washed it down with a breakfast Cola.
I went with the ‘Bar-One and banana pancakes’. They were delicious.
Of course we headed to the beach once the day started to heat up. There was such a low tide that Husband waded right in and plucked some mussels, which he cooked and ate at home.
Me? I was happy to sit in the shade and catch up on some reading.
Just look at that clear sea!
Not ready to go home just yet we headed on to Moyo at Eden at the Bay in Big Bay and had these delightful drinks – a Turkish Delight shake for me, and tiki cocktail for Husband.

Of course I had my face painted. Apologies for the squinting, you couldn’t see the intricate pattern in full when we tried the same shot with my sunnies on. Note our feet were in the water as we sat at the ‘surfboard tables’.
We bought a box of white marshmallow eggs – marked down to R24 for 24 at our local Pick n Pay. Look at how well my manicure matches the wrapper!
And before we knew it, the day was nearing its close. This is the gorgeous sunset we snapped from the balcony at Espana in Burgundy Estate. Husband and dad played a round of golf then we all sat down to a pan of paella. So yummy.
Husband and mum, enjoying their paella…
Dad and me doing the same thing at our end of the table. I’d rubbed off much of the Moyo face paint by then.
Then we looked outside and noticed the beautiful colours of the sky.
Dad and me had our photo taken in front of the pretty sky…
As did Husband and mum.
Sunday, 10 April 2016: Spur breakfast, doggy beach walk
This was my Spur cafe latte first thing on Sunday.
My furry son loves swimming in the sea.
Little Miss Bass also had a lovely time scrambling over rocks – much more adventurous than her usual safe trots along the coastline.
Only one of us is smiling in this pic but we’re all happy, I promise. And Bertie’s running around in the back, we didn’t leave him at the beach – despite how much he’d love that.
Tuesday, 12 April 2016: Working at The River Club
My office for the day on Tuesday was the River Club in Observatory. I was there to cover a media launch in the morning and a business meeting in the afternoon. What a relaxing setting.
Pretty protea as part of the table decor at the River Club.
The eye-catching lights in the stairwell at the River Club.
My lunch meeting at The River Club included their ‘famous’ beef burger and chips. I washed this all down with a coffee shake.
Husband snapped this shot of sunset that evening from our rooftop.
Wednesday, 13 April 2016: Palm tree sunset
I caught a later bus home than usual on Wednesday as I covered an event close to the office after work. This is what sunset looked like when we passed Woodbridge Island on the bus. Love those palm trees.
That’s all, folks! Have a fun-filled weekend. 🙂
