A Trip To Clanwilliam

The weekend after the Balloch wedding, Frosty's folks spent a weekend in Clanwilliam and we got lucky enough to be able to go along for a treat.

This quaint town is about 3 hours drive from Stellies and is surrounded by some awesome wine farms (as we found out on the Saturday!)

As luck would have it, some good family friends of the Frost's were also staying the weekend in Clanwilliam and we were able to spend a lot of the weekend with them. Apart from our wine tasting, we had a great fish braai the night we arrived. Frost's dad was convinced that there wouldn't be enough fish to feed us all, but the next morning there was still fish left over! On the Saturday night we had a braai at the Coopers house which overlooked a beautiful dam. And on the Sunday we took a drive into the hills to go and find some bushman paintings and enjoy a leisurely lunch before the trip home.

We had a great Saturday wine tasting

And the we had a braai while we looked out at this view

A different perspective on the same view
It turns out that we took wine tasting a bit more seriously
than expected - a surprise birthday gift to Colin from the kids  
The start of our bushman paintings hike at the Sevilla Rock Art Trail

We had to lie on our backs underneath this rock to see some paintings!

Shaun found a rock with a hole in the middle of it!

And Scott decided to show us how to get out of a tight 

I was thrilled to see some paintings of ellies on some of the rocks!
And after a rather hot walk, we decided that a swim in the river would be the best way to cool off!

All in all, a great weekend. 
Thanks Frosty's and Coopers :)
