Ladismith is the proverbial 'breath of fresh air' place. It's surrounded by mountains,
is quiet and relaxing, with the friendliest people. When we stopped to ask for directions at a nearby farm, these folks just hopped into their car to drive ahead of us and led us to our cottage.
In the city we just draw them a map.
Every view from the patio was beautiful.
We stopped at Diesel and Cream for crumpets, as you do. Their milkshakes are amazing!

"Odd as I am sure it will appear to some. I can think of no better form of personal involvement in the cure of the environment than that of gardening. A person who is growing a garden, if he is growing it organically, is improving a piece of the world."

My father-in-law celebrated his birthday with an amazing picnic on a beautiful farm, under the trees. He is always kind and a real gentlemen... a special combination that is rare.
There we are.
His stunning cake
There was a stream running next to the lawn where we were sitting. The setting was lovely
and the whole day was memorable.
