It was great to see so many visitors this past weekend – a long weekend for some that included Father’s Day on Sunday (19 June) – in Stilbaai and Jongensfontein and vehicles with number plates from as far as the Cape, Gauteng and the North West Province were seen around. The fact that it is winter with temperatures already below 20°C, did not keep them off the beaches or out of the water and a few windless days and an abundance of sunshine made for a great (long) weekend.
One does not always have to be entertained to have fun and to just relax is also something to do here. There were ‘entertainment’ though, like typical platteland markets and shops as well as activities on the outlaying farms.
We found a few nice photos shared via Instagram and it just showed us again that our visitors – like the residents – like Stilbaai and Jongensfontein for the things they can do here and to relax. This weekend they surfed; took the dogs in a canoe on the Goukou River; did gin tasting at Inverroche Distillery and cheese and wine tasting at Kasselshoop Cheese; attended the Sheep Dog Competition; fished; played tennis and worked-out while enjoying the quietness at the Farm Story country house; visited the restaurants and of course enjoyed the spectacular sunrises and sunsets and long beach walks. There are many photos of happy people enjoying a great view – be it over the sea, the beach or even the sight of colourful aloes that are in bloom.
The schools are closing for the winter holidays this Friday (24 June) and we hope that our visitors will have a memorable time here in the bay of the Sleeping Beauty…
