Charlie's at Port Owen


Last weekend we visited my in-laws on South Africa's West Coast to celebrate my father-in-law's 70th birthday. We enjoyed the food and ambiance at Charlie's, which is at Port Owen Marina in Velddrif. The restaurant offers craft beer, flavorful gin drinks, and delicious food. The following day we had another fabulous meal at my in-laws' home, which is right on the beach at Britannia Bay.

Wine Tasting at De Wet Cellar


We often drive past De Wet Cellar, but just never managed to stop in and try their wines. They are situated on the N1 along the scenic route between Worcester and the Hex River Valley. Outside is very unassuming and presently under some construction, so we were pleasantly surprised to see how beautifully designed the interior was. We experienced an enjoyable wine tasting experience by tasting room manager Anzél Groenewald. It's always nice when your expectations are superseded. We bought a few bottles of sparkling grape juice for Amanda, a jar of homestyle olives, and, of course, some wine.

KWV Tour with Wine and Brandy Tasting


My dad, stepmom, and stepbrother came out to South Africa to visit us in early August. They were only here for one week, so we tried to make every day count. One of the cool things we did was go on an interesting tour of the KWV Wine Emporium. Afterwards we did some tasting of their superb wines and brandies. This was a top notch experience and one that I would recommend to anyone interested.
