Another beautiful Cape winter’s day. Although we’ve had some much needed rain the last week has been beautiful.
While pottering in the garden last week we were excited to see an eagle owl sitting on a branch of the jacaranda tree. As anyone who knows Elsie will realise she was in fear of her life, the owl was almost the same size as her. Hopefully the owl will help to keep the squirrels away from the guava tree, we keep finding lots of half eaten fruit.
The Hout Bay Harbour Market is still very popular in fact they are now open on Wednesday evenings with entertainment.
There is great entertainment on in Cape Town during August, Burn the Floor (dance) at the Artscape, Andre Rieu at Grand West and Cabaret at Theatre on the Bay and lots of great winter specials at many of the restaurants, we’ll let you know which we try!!

We spent 4 nights at the Hideway, what an apt name, and what a great place. we stayed in the Skylight suite at the rear overlooking the garden and pool with a 2 aspect bacony and very easy access to the beautifully warm pool, a decent size and crystal clear salt water. we frequently sat watching the nectar eaters (birds) perched on the Proteas oblivious to us about 20 feet away
Martin and Sue our hosts were superb, nothing too much trouble and wonderful breakfasts served on the balcony outside our room courtesy of Sue. The Wi fi worked well every where we tried it and the Kitchenette in the room was an absolute godsend for evening snacks if we had had a large breakfast followed by a beautiful lunch (Reccommend “The food Barn” and Chapmans Peak hotel for lunch). Off street secure parking was another bonus and the whole experience exceeded our already high expectations. Thank you again Martin and Sue, we will be back
