I don’t know where October has gone, but it was very enjoyable. The weather has been lovely, lots of very sunny and warm days, but because we’ve had a couple of days of heavy rain the garden is looking lovely.
Two new restaurants are due to open in Hout Bay, looking forward to trying them but Kitimas is still a favourite. We were there last Saturday, the vodka chocolate chilli martinis are to die for.
Rhianna was at Cape Town Stadium recently, the concert seemed to be a great success and brought lots of people into the centre of Cape Town.
Kirstenbosch Summer Concerts start again at the end of this month. It’s a great way to spend a Sunday evening with a picnic listening to music with spectacular mountain and city views.
The Cape Point Vineyard Community Market also started again last Thursday. This is a weekly market with a variety of food stalls and the perfect spot to enjoy the view over Noordhoek beach.
Last weekend was the Cape Town International Kite Festival held at Muizenburg. I quote from the advertising of the event ‘This is Africa’s biggest kite festival and attracts over 20,000 visitors, including some of the biggest names in kiting in SA and the world who fly in to show off their magnificent kite creations’. What more can you say.
Martin is busy cutting back the ‘vine monster’. At the moment it looks like he’s trying to kill it but he’s been reading up on the internet and I’m sure it will recover and produce another hundred tonnes of lovely sweet grapes.
Halloween doesn’t seem to be a major event here but Bonfire Night is so we’re looking forward to seeing the firework displays around Hout Bay tonight.
