Blaauwklippen Family Market ~ Every Sunday!

Hello Dear Friends!
How are you all after the weekend?
Monday has come and gone and behaved herself nicely! Just as well, because I had a fabulous weekend of activity. I just wish I could have squeezed in a little more!
But no complaints... I started the weekend with Dinner at the Grand Beach Cafe in Granger Bay (more on that in a next post) on Friday evening!
There are so many wonderful markets to choose from, and add to that the annual Gift Markets catering for the Festive Season, and you could be busy for days!!

On Sunday, a friend invited me to join her and her famous four legged friend Bear, Mutt of the Year for 2012 at the Wine Dine and Dog Day at Nelson Creek Wine Estate. It was such fun! click here for pics on Mother City Magic's Facebook Page.
The event was held on Nelson Creek Wine Estate and so after I had worked up an appetite, chasing after stylish pooches, I headed out to Blaauwklippen Family Market! It was my first visit!!! Can you believe it!!
Follow the Facebook page here for directions and details of the market as well as any other updates.

 Blaauwklippen Vineyard won the SA Wine Tourism Klink Award for the best "Family Day Out" Category as well as the Supernova award for the most votes!!
It is well worth a visit! There is something for everyone and of course the setting is just spectacular!

I was famished and there was so much to choose from....
Chocholate cake and a smoothie...for some contradiction....?

Or how about this....?

I stopped off to taste some of Cold Gold's Ice Cream!!!
The Bubblegum flavour literally pops on the tastebuds...try it for a real bubblegum experience. Janine says it took her three weeks to perfect it!

Wine labels is something that fascinates me, and I got a little carried away with these amazing labels. Each one a work of art!

So much to choose from!

There was live music and a fantastic vibe!

I kept circling back to these....

Families made themselves at home on picnic blankets and chairs on lush lawns to kick back and relax to the max!

The kids were kept entertained with rides, a playground and an animal yard.

I will certainly be back to visit again! It was such a relaxing afternoon.There  seems to be something for everyone to enjoy. Food, craft, music, wine...what more do you need for a Sunday?

These Alpahas has got to be the cutest creatures ever. Don't you just love the colour and the "hair cuts"

Live Well
 Live the Cape Town Vibe

Kindly leave your comments below... I am all ears....
