Back to reality!

"Mango Groove" at Driftwoods on Friday night.
On the beach at Friday Island Sunday morning.

Not tooooo bad for 23 years!
Our weekend turned out quite nice! We left Cape Town at about 13H00 on Friday, arrived in Langebaan, chilled for a while and then went for dinner at Driftwoods. Driftwoods is right on the beach. I had "HRH Charles" which consisted of baked chicken with a filling of vegetables. Colin had a steak with mushroom sauce. The food was exelent! We ended the meal of with amarula dom pedros and then went driving around trying to find the "Weskus makietie", which ended up being Afrikaans music. Needless to say we didn't spend any time there as we don't really like Afrikaans music.
Slept late on Saturday morning, had breakfast and then went of to Saldanha. I was very dissapointed as it was not exactly a photo opportunity. You are not supposed to take photos at all as it is sort of a "military area", but there was really nothing worth taking the chance over! Will rather find some decent rocks and waves at another time. We visited a scrapbooking buddy in Langebaan in the afternoon and then had a braai all by ourselves on Saturday night! I can just imagine what it is going to be like once it is just the 2 of us again! At the moment I cook for 7 people every day! It was yummy and then we watched 2 DVD's.
Slept in again on Sunday morning. We got to Friday Island at 11H30 and they were closed for breakfast! I was very dissapointed and to add insult to injury one of the men lit up a cigarette and I was totally cheesed of! We moved to another table and I ended up having Crumbed pork with a filling of spinach and feta with a cheese sauce over and Colin had a burger with thai style onions. Also very delicious, but not quite bacon and eggs!!!! We went for a bit of a walk on the beach thereafter and then back to Cape Town. I decided to take photos of the clouds on the way back and the dear long suffering husband eventually got very fed up with me asking him to stop every so often so that I could take photos of the clouds! We ended our perfectly enjoyable weekend by having an argument. Anyway, we will survive that one as well! Got some lovely photos of the clouds and will definitely do a LO on them.
Oh yes, we came home to "What's for supper?" and I knew our peacefull weekend was over!
Enjoy your day!

Congrats on your anniversary - I do agree that Aprl is the best month to get married in. Lovely photos. Is the Mango Groove the cocktail you had? I expected a "naughtier" name than that.
