We decided to take a day trip to Parys on Sunday morning, about 200km away.
We started off at Hoi Poloi, having a lovely breakfast. I had their SUPER Berry flapjacks with crispy bacon,just devine. What I love about restaurants like these is the fact that you can actually taste what you are eating, you can taste each and everything in your plate, sometimes i get the idea some of these places cook all their food in one pan, because all of it taste the same. This place is really exquisite.
We visited a few shops like these and there are plenty, let me tell you!
The river is coming down nicely, after the rain they had in the Free State.
Took my mom and dad along, they enjoyed the outing:)
Then, we stepped into this shop, the Candy Man. Oh my word!! Sweets galore, i only took these stolen pics, most of the shops you are not allowed to take pictures. So this is like 10% of the sweets that is actually in this shop.
I liked the atmosphere of this shop, just like a little farm stall.
Just one of the buildings in the main street.
This cross caught my eye at the entrances of a shop, they sell beautiful things, from handbags to crockery.
We ended the day by booking a spot next to the river for just after Christmas.
This cake stand with dome, my mom bought me for Christmas, it is early I know, she will wrap it!!lol!! But I just fell in love with it, the minute I saw it! I can just see a lovely cheesecake under this one;) She bought it at a German shop, just out of town on Saturday.
For now, this is all I have to say!
Hope you are doing well and enjoying your preparations for Christmas:)
I am MISSING my Megan, I work a bit, cry a bit:(
