While staying around Oudtshoorn we were advised to head out along the road to the Swartberg pass and turn towards a little hamlet identifiable via a tall church spire, and find a spot in the sunshine to sip wine.
Inbetween summer rains we ceased the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful facilities that Leipzig have to offer.
Wide tracks between the long lines of vines were beautifully welcoming
If trudging through muddy woods in wonderful wide brim fedoras is your thing, well hell, embrace it!
This warm dry spring has been lingering for what feels like the longest time.
"You're doing what?" blurted one of my AWSCreate clients who I've been consulting for, "I'm going to the Annual Bridport Hat Festival."

By far, this is one of my favourite events of the weekend...
