Jacques in Cape Town and a Beta Beach visit…

Little Beta Beach
Little Beta Beach – Joe the dassie
  • Week of 22-28 December. Another holiday-mode post…
  • Monday, a salad at Caprice with Georg, nap, a two hour Table Mountain walk above our house with Nikki, great weather, beautiful sunset, a seared tuna steak at Sidewalk Cafe with Georg and Nikki, we watched some Team America again, babies don’t sleep this well.
  • Tuesday, tea and conversations about Fight Club, last needed gym visit to keep my Vitality Diamond status (just in time – would probably have been very easy if I was not in London for four months), a walk around the Cape Town CBD with Nikki… walked through the Company’s Gardens, had a Guinness at Twankey bar, walked up Long Street, had a burger in a bowl at Da Vinci’s, walked through De Waal Park, a swim in the rain, rediscovered the 4 Hour Body book, watched Rushmore again with Nikki… love that movie, great day.
  • “I am so happy I didn’t waste you on my twenties.” — Nikki

  • Wednesday, tea, afternoon braai with Georg… medium-rare rib eye steaks and salad (no braai broodjies), 4 hour nap, watched the Simpsons episode with Michael Jackson, blogging and photo processing, finished reading the aquaponics book at about 2:30 and finally managed to fall asleep.
  • Maybe Interstellar is one big aquaponics advert. It’s very lame that a key part of the plot is that the corn will die.
  • Feeling really rested, nice. Have not used my car since Saturday.
  • Tune of the week: Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – Into My Arms
  • Thursday, rainy xmas day in Franschhoek with Nikki.
  • She should have said “I know” (-;
  • Friday, swim, Chardonnay tasting, (Milan) burger in a bowl at Da Vinci’s with Georg, Jacques and Marietjie arrived in Cape Town at 22:00ish.
  • Strange time. For all the confusion in one part of my life – I’m very happy with the other.
  • Saturday, Jacques (the paleo house husband) cooked us breakfast on his gas braai, wine tour day with Jacques, Georg and Marietjie: Villiera, Simonsig (good value Chardonnay) and Beyerskloof, braai at home.
  • Sunday, Jacques made us brunch, very nice Beta Beach afternoon – mostly Little Beta Beach (see above) – love that beach, Van Hunks, drinks at home with Al, Paul and Hilah, fun evening.

Have a fun week, crazy kids.
