I recently enjoyed a happy four day beachside break on the Langebaan lagoon.
The sunny days were perfect for recharging in the sun, drawing, devouring books, and cooking simple food:
Leaves from Oep ve Koep’s garden dressed with lemon juice, lamb on the braai with wild herbs and bokkom butter, marinated mushrooms, and rustic bread baked in a temperamental gas oven.
The slightly chilly evenings were spent inside, drinking wine by lamp light, sharing supper with friends and making conversation until late night.
It was a perfect post-season breakaway.
