Owls at Boschendahl, South Africa

DSCN1944Each time we visit Cape Town we always make a point of visiting the Boschendahl vineyard for a picnic lunch.  Here, in beautiful grounds complete with a lily pond and sparkling white gazebo, a traditional picnic basket is brought to your white-clothed table in the shade of ancient trees.  A bottle of Blanc de Noir makes a great accompaniment to a delightful array of salads, cooked meats, fresh bread, cheese and a confectionery dessert.

Throughout a delightful lunch, our activities were observed from an effectively camouflaged perch, by a beautiful if cautious owl.


About Sandra

I cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and write fiction and poetry. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.
