Happy Mother’s Day – somewhat belatedly!

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!

On Mother’s Day – I know, it’s several weeks ago! – we decided to take my Mom for a little drive out to the delightful Helderberg Nature Reserve outside Somerset West, to have lunch at the Oak Café, the restaurant/coffee shop inside the reserve. We hadn’t been there in over two years, since exploring the Blue Trail and the Yellow Trail at the start of 2010, and thought a follow-up visit was way overdue.

We went for a relaxing walk along the boardwalk that surrounds the vlei – not many birds could be seen, but they could definitely be heard! It was a beautiful, sunny day, with just a slight wintery nip in the air. It was wonderful to get out of the bustling city for a bit, and inhale some clean, fresh air – and the delicious lunch among good company made our visit even more special.

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom! Love you LOTS!
