What a beautiful weekend filled with laughter, dances, Thai spring rolls, sushi, family braai, a walk with monkeys and Hadeda Ibises and a relaxing Sunday.
I started off the weekend with a catch up at the Musgrave Roof Top Night Market. I have moved away from just eating Falafels. I have discovered amazing Thai Spring Rolls with glass noodles! What?! So. Good.
My Saturday started off quite mellow. I didn’t really want to get out of bed. I did. Otherwise, Nick would have been bleak with me.
I bought sushi from my local take away spot run by three young Chinese guys who have asked me out on a miso soup dinner date.
A feast more than a light picnic. Go big or go home, eh?
We pretty much could not move for a while. All we could do was lie flat on our backs, look at the sky and listen to the birds sing.
When we had been bitten by enough mosquitos, we decided on a walk around the Botanic Gardens. We have always had this place available to us but we just do not visit it often enough. It is the best picnic spot in Durban. Also, seemingly the place to take wedding photos.
A walk with Hadedas and monkeys in the heat seemed like the most perfect moment. All life living in harmony.
After the lazy stroll. It was time to see my family for a late afternoon/evening braai. It is always so lovely to see my cousins. We literally sit outside, have beers and talk utter nonsense. For hours! It is the best!! 🙂
I would not have had this weekend any other way.
