Happy Holiday Part 1

Well, I am on holiday. I doubt for the next 2 weeks I will be able to blog about any food I am making, perhaps I'll review a restaurant or two.

So far since leaving home, I have travelled to Joberg, Ballito and now the Drakensberg.

We attended a wedding in Ballito. It really was a very good wedding, and we partied until late into the night. We slept over in a delightfully rustic holiday resort, called Cane Cutters.
It is the perfect place to go if you have children of any age - babies to late teens. There are activities or everyone. Live music, pony rides, quad biking, trampolines, swimming pool .... the list goes.We left Balito early on Sunday morning and took a slow drive up to the Drakenberg. We stopped at Howick Falls. I was very disappointed to see that the top of the falls has been converted into a laundry for the informal settlement. I can not believe that they allow such a beautiful natural heritage site to be desecrated like that. Never the less, taking them out of the picture, it is still beautiful.The only foodie thing I have experienced that is worth telling you about is the delicious homemade ginger beer I had with my lunch today. The rest of the meal was unpleasant at best!
The service was possibly the worst I have ever had, but the ginger beer was really really good!

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
C.S. Lewis
