A weekend away with friends

A couple of weeks ago we went to Franskraal with a couple of friends of ours and their daughter. It was a great weekend with lots of ice-cream, braai-ing, beach time and chatting. I love really love the Franskraal house – it’s a perfect place to escape from the busyness of life a weekend or for a mid-week break….hint hint David.

We thought about going somewhere new but then decided on the holiday house because we really just wanted to have a relaxing time. It was an awesome few days. We left on Wednesday and came home today, Saturday. We spent the time exploring Hermanus, Gansbaai Standord and even took a drive to what we think is the southern most beach. It was at the border of the Cape Agulhas nature reserve, so I think it’s a pretty good assumption. The rest of the time was […]
