A Visit To Darling

A few weekends ago, we went to Darling with Frosty's family and we had such a lovely weekend away. We drank some wine, went to Evita se Perron where we saw the show Adapt or Fly and we also took a bit of a drive to see the last of the Namaqualand flowers (I think it was the Waylands farm that we drove around- thank you Waylands!).

In other news, Engineering In Style have posted my second guest post on their blog, so you can click here to go and take a look to find out more on How and Why I ended up studying engineering. (If you want to follow their blog take a look at their facebook page too!)

And now, for some photos...

We had fun playing with long exposures and making laser patterns in the pictures!

We went to Darling Olives to do a Wine and Olive tasting - so yummy!

We spent some time watching them build their nests and it was incredible!
Pink flowers
Before lunch at the Marmalade Cat, we went to find some flowers. I got some lovely pics and
then at lunch, there was a great menu that told us the (local?) names of some of these flowers.
This one is called Bokbaaivygie.
