Dinner by guests

Thanks Fede and Josh who cooked up a storm for us last night, having stayed with us for 7 weeks over the International Film Festival, then setting off for Cape Town and back home to Boston.

Sunday fun

Awesome Sunday. Got up late, breakfast in bed!!, then wandered down to Virginia and had a quick fun flight in the plane to King Shaka International where I did a touch-and-go, slipping in after an SAA Airbus. Then a few drinks and pizza at Craft and then afternoon tea with Llew's mom at her new Mount Edgecombe home.
A little BMW parked outside Craft.. sort of matched my shirt and shorts..ha ha

Dinner with guests

Our guests who are staying at the guesthouse for 7 weeks.. Josh from Boston and Fede from Spain came over for a braai last night and we were joined by Kate and James. I had the chance to perfect my chocolate fondant for dessert.. got it just right with the liquid choc oozing out, so yummy! Kate cut the strawberries into perfect heart shapes, so sweet.

Durban July Races

As a member of the Durban Turf Club I get free tickets to the July Handicap races, Africa's premier horseracing event, and at R400 for the tickets, we definitely were not going to miss out on some of the action. We are a stone's throw from there so it's quick to walk down. Sadly my July winners were not! The 13th race (see 4th pic down) was hugely entertaining though - as soon as the last horse race is over, it's traditional for the guys to leap over the fence and line up for a naked 100m dash to the finish. This year they were joined by a few brave girls too.
