George to collect Kirsten who is here for the week. Hesta and William arrived for a weekend of fun. Pink face from watching the arrival of the Karoo-Coast MTB race. Hot enough to make a beer seem like a good idea. The taste less so.

We stopped at Timber Lake, a collection of quirky shops and restaurants, tucked into the edge of the forest, a bit outside Wilderness. Strong, wake up, cappuccino, with a brief browse through the wine shop. Alvin’s Drift, a winery from Worcester that we had never heard about. The bubbles scrumptious and well worth getting a sample of their other wines to try. The Oyster Shack didn’t have any wild-oysters as the seas have been too rough.
A special moment to say farewell to Holly at the Heads.
Something to be said about heading out for a jog after a great evening at J9, with excellent Cab Franc wines. On entering the marked km section of the route (the bit where I’m trying to run faster), it’s with a ‘not today’ attitude. Only to find that the more relaxed ‘wine’ run was faster than my normal effort run.
Following a bunch of queries, I uploaded my paintings from Botswana and Tanzania to my website. The pictures of the Afghanistan paintings not great, and I will need to sort them after they have been unpacked.
Finishing going on at the apartment. The last of the glass windows is in and the final coat of paint being applied. The floor making, slow, steady progress. The holiday weekend causing chaos with the schedule. Visited the cupboards at Design-Wise. The three dressing room units almost completed.
I’m trying to get a bit better at recording of my painting process. Both as a record for clients who want to know more about what was used in the painting and for personal interest in my development. Not knowing what I’m doing, does allow for all sorts of innovation!
