Jurgen and I were in Brittania Bay (a couple hours drive from Cape Town) for a wedding a few weeks ago and decided to hop on over to Paternoster for lunch with friends the next morning. This little town by the sea is so very near and dear to my heart that it's hard to put into words - but to give you some sort of idea, it's a place where Jurgen and I visited often when we first started dating, and the place where we decided we were going to give this long distance thing a go when I went back to California for the first time.
It also happens to be just about the most romantic place you could ever imagine, filled with little white houses and quaint little restaurants scattered along the beach. And, as an added perk, the fishermen sell bags and bags of crayfish tails (same as spiny lobster) on the side of the road, for next to nothing. I remember once we scored 20 tails for R200 in total, i.e. about $25. Long story short I love this place and could write about it for hours, but instead I'll just let the pictures do the talking.
Voorstrandt Restaurant aka the most adorable restaurant ever.
Such characters! - Jurg snapped this one for me on our way out of town :)
Other things making me happy this week:
- Only two more finals and then I'm finished with the semester!
- I have all of my documents together for my visa renewal and am going to submit everything tomorrow (a much bigger accomplishment than it may seem)
- Today at the gym I realized that I've somehow lost 1.4 kgs (about 3 lbs) since Saturday meaning that I'm only 1.6 away from reaching my goal weight :)
- Jurgen will be home in one week!!! (saved the best for last!)
How is your week going so far?
