We head towards Citrusdal and the wild flowers.


With the mist hanging heavy over Lions Head,
we set off for Citrusdal and a specific road side plaasstal(farm stall).


173km up the N7 we found it...


Home on the one side of their parking lot.


And the farm shop on the other


Run by Marina Theron and her "right hand",Monica.
this little gem that featured in the August edition of Country Life magazine
was very busy with take away customers.
Marina was also a guest on my "Travel & Things" radio show.

Plenty of oranges for sale...


Inside, they offer a variety of home-made and local goodies.


The building was built in 1849 and still retains some of the original features.


A treasure trove of treats.


Biscuits of all shapes and sizes.


Jams and marmalades...
All made on the premises
You can call them on 022 921 2792 to place an order.


You can sit indoors, on the stoep( porch),
or...


Like my daughter, you can sit out in the garden


My wife discovered some of the wild flowers that the area is well known for.


My daughter and I chose a burger for lunch.
The chips were very tasty, but the patty could have done with some spices


My wife decided to have a scone with home made cream and jam.


We all agreed that the ginger beer and the home baked bread were worth the trip


We stopped to have a look at the flowers on the roadside


A we even spotted a Protea!


Back in Sea Point for dinner.
This restaurant has been around since 1969...
They must be doing SOMETHING right.
A very special dinner to celebrate my daughter's upcoming birthday.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY...
