Sharing Some Photos From An Unplanned Roadtrip

In 2014 we decided to try and take a new route to Mr’s parents home to spend the holidays with them.

Sitting on the Sunglasses at Sea Point Beach

The Sea Point Promenade is one of our favourite weekend hang out places with the kids or for a sunset stroll. I’ve been coming to Sea Point and Sea Point park since childhood, but the sunglasses are a relatively new installment to the promenade. The sunglasses look out onto Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was… Continue reading Sitting on the Sunglasses at Sea Point Beach
