I had the privilege of a four day holiday in Cape Town with my husband. I really needed this holiday and loved and made the most of almost every minute of it. My husband had a milestone birthday and between the two of us we decided to explore Cape Town and do some things we hadn’t ever done before. So we found quaint little places to have tea, had a scrumptious picnic on Chapman’s peak drive and found the most beautiful beach ever in Scarborough. We even went to a museum (something we hardly ever do). When it was time to come back to Joburg I had tears in my eyes and really wasn’t ready to leave magnificent Cape Town. How can one compare the beauty?
When I was back in Joburg I decided that instead of lamenting the “loss”, I would make a concerted effort to find what I had in Cape Town back here in Joburg.
What did I have there? Scenic walks and drives, fresh air, quality time, picnics, touching horses, being a foot away from a big crab, soft sand, watching dogs play…… I can find those things here too (except for the crab of course). Obviously I won’t have the sea and the mountains and those specific types of clouds but we also have mountains nearby, lakes and dams and big parks and potential picnics. I’ve decided that this year I’m going to make time for these things.
Wishing you a fantastic 2017!
