One of the excursions that we had pre-booked for Day 4 in South Africa was a Whale Tour with Southern Right Charters in Hermanus. However, sadly the weather caused the company to cancel the boat trip out of safety and once we saw the waves we felt very thankful.
On day three, we woke up in our beautiful hotel and had the most amazing buffet breakfast – the breakfast alone is reason to book a stay at Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront – Cape Town, but also it is wonderfully central to everything we wanted to do. After a hearty breakfast we were picked up by a fantastic guide from Wine Flies- Wine Tour and whisked away on an all-day wine adventure! Wine Flies focuses on authentic wine farms in the Stellenbosch region with a guided drive through the town itself, one of the oldest towns in South Africa. You learn so much about the people, local delicacies and the culture behind the wine industry in South Africa – it was amazing.
Sanding Ovations in Treasure Island, Florida seems to be a new family tradition for the week of Thanksgiving! The last two years we have enjoyed the event while family comes to town in November. Mark and I love when family stays in one of our favorite condos in Treasure Island, FL called the Island Inn.Continue reading “St Pete – Sanding Ovations 2021- Treasure Island”
Looking for a festive place to enjoy happy hour this Florida fall and winter? Look no further than our two favorite themed establishments in the heart of our beautiful city – Dracula’s Legacy Wine Bar & Bistro and directly next door – The Ale & The Witch Tap House in downtown St Pete. It is the best of both worlds during spooky season!
Another favorite brunch spot! If you have ever driven down 4th Street in St Pete – you have likely passed by a very busy looking establishment called Noble Crust – and if you are like us – you are intrigued, but intimidated by what looks like a long wait, especially when you are hungry! Well… let me assure you – it is worth the wait and we can’t wait to go back!
Sometimes in life, a thoughtful act of kindness comes along, and the impact is deeper than you realize. When a very lovely friend of ours discovered she wasn’t going to be able to attend a show she had tickets for, and offered them to us, the emotions it brought forth were immense. Mark and I had the pleasure of attending the second to last night of the Broadway musical CATS at the Straz Center in Tampa last weekend, and we are still feeling the effects. Dinner, a show, and a Memory.
We love a good brunch spot, especially one with outdoor seating and a good drink selection. So when we heard that Stella’s in Gulfport, Florida had a Bloody Mary Flight, we just had to check it out!
terally crave the specialty cocktails and food from there and it’s becoming a regular hang-out anytime we venture down Central Avenue.
