Review of Cafe Throbb in Knysna

After a freezing and rainy morning walking around the Knysna harbour one day, we walked through the town looking for a nice coffee shop, and as we walked past Cafe Throbb we all decided that was a great place to stop. Most of us had a light lunch while we were in the cafe, all […]

Walking with butterflies at Kloofendal - The Real Jenty

Walking with butterflies at Kloofendal - The Real Jenty

We met Madelein and her kids at Kloofendal this morning for the butterfly walk. This is one of the many types of guided walks that are offered by Friends of Kloofendal, and it was awesome for the kids… and adults 😉 It was the first time my kids (and me) had done one of the […]

Just Connor .. and those long gorgeous eyelashes - Musings with coffee

A quick, short and sweet post on this drizzly afternoon before I cuddle up with a hot cup of tea and a book. A few photos of Connor which I took, unbeknown to him, several days ago while capturing flowers in my garden.

I blinked and he changed... - The Real Jenty

No-one warned me about how much the boys would change at age 12. Every month Bradley is different. In height (almost my height now), shoe size (size 10!) and in looks… not to mention his personality. He let me have 5 minutes of portrait fun yesterday…

This is 13

This is 13 - The Real Jenty

His thirteenth birthday has come and gone. It was a whirlwind of the weekend filled with friends, and long nights… just what he wanted. We organised a sleepover with two of his friends… well “sleepover” is a stretch, because they played Fifa on Xbox for the entire night, lounging around on a massive bed we’d […]

Connor's birthday party at City Rock - The Real Jenty

Connor's birthday party at City Rock - The Real Jenty

Connor’s 9th birthday was last week, and on Sunday we organised a small birthday party for him at City Rock Johannesburg. It’s an indoor rock climbing venue just off Republic Road in Randburg… and was the most awesome place for a birthday party! It’s new, and none of the kids had ever done it before. […]

{Road to 13} Against the wall - The Real Jenty

I’ve decided that Bradley is changing too quickly, and I’m losing out on this change. I’ve been far too slack about taking photos of him. So with his permission, I’m starting a weekly series called the Road to 13. There’s about 13 weeks until he turns 13 years old. I took these yesterday against my […]

Karen and Richard met in Peru and then Karen moved to Johannesburg to be with Richard! And now there’s a baby on the way 🙂 What a gorgeous story! I spent Sunday afternoon with Karen and Richard at their home in Bryanston. Karen is due in a few weeks time, and what better way to celebrate being […]

Knysna Big Tree and the Heads

The day after the race, we took the boys (incl Ewan) to walk through another forest, and to explore the Knysna Heads. This time we were on a mission to find the “Big Tree”. The King Edwards VII tree, as it is known, is close to the Diepwalle Forest Station. The impressive Yellowwood tree is […]

All about the beach and pizza and oysters - Sedgefield, South Africa

Myoli beach and pizza and oysters

After the trip to the forest, we were all famished, so the Green suggested we head for Pili Pili Beach Bar in Sedgefield. What an amazing place! It’s right at the beach in Sedgefield, and is a proper beachy place. There’s sea sand on the floor, and has got so much character. And to top […]

A trip to Crocodile Creek outside Ballito - The Real Jenty

Our last day in Ballito was cloudy and not beach worthy… and the kids had been dying to either go to Ushaka or Crocodile Creek. After working out what the day would cost at Ushaka, we decided on the crocodile route instead. We’ve been there before, in fact, I’ve blogged about it before too… we […]

Mornings on the beach - The Real Jenty

I can’t not show you photos of the kids on the beach! The sole purpose for visiting Ballito is the sun and the sand and the sea. Luckily the weather was mostly good, and we spent most mornings on the beach. The kids mastered their body boards… which was the reason for the massive luggage […]
