We decided to drive and see the wild flowers last Saturday. We only left after 10 am but we so enjoyed the day!
David went to empty our postbox on Saturday morning after we decided to go the the West Coast National Park to see the flowers. He discovered a pamphlet advertising a wild flower show in Mamre and we changed our route to include this.
We ended up having lunch in Mamre (R40 for a massive plate with salads and braaivleis/barbeque with the meat covering more than half the plate ;), seeing a beautiful exhibit with indigenous wild flowers and a stunning old Moravian church!
Our last stop was Malmesbury for some ice cream at KFC.
In hindsight: I loved everything but the best part about the day was having David all to myself all day and being able to just talk about everything we never get the chance for! The girls were nodding off in the back of the Kombi and popped their heads up every now and then and got out when we stopped somewhere so it was a partial rest day for them ;)
