Last night we used the indoor braai for the first time. What a pleasure not to have to stand in the wind to cook the food. We enjoyed a chicken wing starter followed by spare ribs, sweet potatoes and salad. The latter is now Jay’s speciality!
This morning we finished off some chores that needed to be done – varnishing the woodwork, fixing this and that – or rather my guys did all that while I worked on the inventory.
We found this chap in the garden this morning too. I’ve never seen a carnivorous snail in Struisbaai before. We have other wild visitors to our garden too – francolins regularly bring their babies to see us, various birds enjoy our Milk-wood tree and tortoises seem to think they’ll get a snack of lettuce leaves and vegetable peelings if they find us in a good mood.
By 10:30 we were all done and reluctantly took our leave for home.
Here are some more pictures.
