Yesterday, the kids stayed home with the father person and I popped over to Noordhoek Farm Village with a friend – for peace and pie. And coffee of course, but that’s just to keep me awake when I am not surrounded by the jive and hustle of se7en kids to keep me on my toes.
I haven’t been there for the longest time and I was pleasantly surprised that for all the changes, with a fancy hotel and so on, it’s still the same. It’s a great place for coffee, breakfast and lunch outdoors. Its a great place for kids – there is a play park overlooked by the restaurants… so adults can eat while children play. Not that I glanced at it yesterday – I do know how to take a break when I get one!!! The part I like best about Noordhoek Village are the shops and all the “eye candy,” the bright colors and the fun crafts.
There are a couple of good shops, galleries and a deli that is packed with yummy things to eat…
Lot’s of touristy trap things and lots of wonderful local crafts. It is a fantastic place to stock up on great gifts for overseas friends. In amongst the tourist prices you can still find a couple of really good bargains…
Basket Weaving and Drums:
There is a tack shop for the pony mad kidlet:
A collectable shop – look at all those tins, not to mention Tin Tin!!!
Not to mention look at this sweetie cabinet… exactly like the one I grew up with, at the cafe over the road, when I was a kid.
That’s it the moment has past, home again, home again, and back to reality! Only I am now armed with a heap of gift ideas for the next few looming birthdays.
