As crazy as this may sound, I made the great trek from
Joburg to Cape Town on Friday morning. But oh was it well worth the drive.
Milnerton Market was the first stop on Saturday. I love nothing more than a good
bargain on some beautiful vintage pieces. The morning consisted of spending
under 50 South African Randjies (I know right??!!!) on 2 leather belts and 2
bags, one being a clutch, the other, a forest green weekender bag with leather trimmings. Will couldn’t help himself to the brief and
suitcases for less than 100 ZAR. We had to seriously consider how these would
fit in the boot on the drive home but bought them regardless.
The hype of all
our purchased gems was giving off some serious cravings for pizza and a local
friend whisked us off to The Woodlands Eatery in Vredehoek. It has a cosy and
comfortable vibe with the friendliest owners and an enchanted forest atmosphere.
If only they were in Joburg. Their Feta and garlic Focaccia is the crispiest
most flavoursome I have had to date, and aren’t drenched and dripping in stringy
cheese. Just the way I like it. By lunch time the place really started filling
up, which is always a good sign. After
much lounging about I made world record time for getting ready for a wedding
that was held at Simonsig Wine Estate that afternoon.
