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.

It can be found just outside of Rawsonville, which really is a one horse town. There’s not even cellphone signal, which was a bit of challenge for me but I think by Sunday I was fine with that. [easy-image-collage id=1870] On Friday we popped into the  Du Toitskloof Winery to do some wine tasting. We tasted three white wines and three red wines for free. We then bought one white and one red bottle of wine, […]
