Stop a While and Look Around


“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

– John Hughes, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

Time goes by so fast.

If we don’t make the decision to take time out to enjoy our environment and each other’s company, we might one day wake up and find that life has passed us by.

On Sunday my daughter and I did just that. We took the time to explore her new environment and enjoy each other’s company. As we both are  firm believers in the joys of new experiences, we decided to have lunch at the Leafy Greens Cafè in Muldersdrift



This cafè serves only plant based and vegan friendly food. On weekends a  beautifully presented buffet lunch can be enjoyed.  Food is prepared from seasonal produce out of the farm’s own garden.

On arrival we were greeted by friendly staff and seated in a delightfully rustic outdoor area. Soon we were enjoying the well prepared and tasty food, in the relaxing company of other clients, nature and this canine friend.

We left the Leafy Greens Cafè filled with vitamins and feel good food.

After such a big lunch a walk in the park was needed. So off to the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens we went, where another surprise awaited us. Due to the recent heavy rainfall, the waterfall in the Gardens is  swollen and filled with water cascading spectacularly down the cliffs into the river below .


The few hours we stopped here on life’s journey renewed our energy both physically and emotionally, leaving us ready to start a new week the next day.
