Squeezed between ‘Very Sexy’ and ‘Nudity’, was ‘S&M’! Such, the wines of our Shiraz tasting, on a long hot summer day, with a cooling breeze. Exactly, the conditions for savoury, rich, intoxicating Shiraz. Spicy pulled-pork, served with gnocchi and an avo, salsa salad, the carefully thought out meal from Suyenne. While at the Kleine Zaltze family reserve was the star, the Very sexy Shiraz from Cloof was the easiest drinking and outstanding value. 
The sun called us out to play on the beach. The first footprints of the day as the tide left behind its pristine playground. 
Whole grilled pumpkin on the Weber was a bit of a disaster, as it was actually a big squash, that disintegrated into a pile of watery mush when I tried to take it off the grid. Coreta rescued it by taking the flesh out, mixing it with feta and putting it in the oven. So delicious after all! Clare did a berry, mango, cream and yogurt dessert. Perfect after the fillet.
We moved the table onto the patio as the sunset and watched the lights come on over the water. Very special and quite unbelievable. The owl stopping past to join the fun.
Fighting with my painting of an elephant herd heading to the water at Addo. The smaller canvas size making it difficult not to have rock-type blobs, rather than elephants. The background, overpowering the composition.

Amazing that a year has already passed in the studio!
