La Motte, Franschhoek

We had a fabulous outing to La Motte in Franschhoek yesterday! Perfect weather, perfect setting, what more can one ask for? I think my jealousy was the same shade of green as the velvety lawn on the estate! ; ) Argh I would give my right arm and leg to live there!
I thought that the lady with the glass of "wine" was a nice touch at the end of the entrance road. Overall the service, from the lady at the gate house to the shop and restaurant staff, was very friendly and helpful. The experience left me with a warm feeling, proudly South African! And one could clearly see that La Motte was another successful Rupert endeavor!

time to be spoilt!

I was spoilt rotten by my good friend Alta with a fabulous custom made wall clock! With her amazing design skills she aptly illustrated my daily routine with a bit of an overlap of the day and night... and an exception of "'n knip 'n uiltjie" around 3pm... ; )
This object of beauty has now joined my prized collection of Alta Stegmann art works! Thanks Alta, I LOVE it!!!
