Firstly I would like to thank all of you who took the trouble to wish us well for our short break last week - it was really nice of you all, and much appreciated by both Jacqui and myself.
We were away just for two nights, and spent the time in and around a small town called Hermanus. It's situated on our south-east coast and is approximately a two-hour drive from Cape Town. We left home early on the Wednesday, which was an absolutely fabulous day, and then had rain and clouds for the Thursday, and again on the Friday morning before we left. I have a variety of shots, but will keep the series fairly short so as not to bore you.
We went for a short drive along one of the exit roads out of Hermanus on the Thursday afternoon, and came across a number of wine estates along the way. This one, however, was by far the most attractive looking from the road. The beautiful building you see is the estate's cellar, surrounded by the most magnificent scenery.
The sparse colourful leaves on the foreground trees show we are just about at the end of autumn, with winter just around the corner.
