Up in the Clouds

This weekend, Chris and I were very privileged to be invited to Marissa and Jayson’s wedding in Stellenbosh, Cape Town. It was our first proper weekend away from the girls, and a very grown-up destination too. The venue was Clouds Estate – a fantastic vineyard with views over the mountains. I tried to capture these in my sketchbook.

The accommodation was amazing.

On Sunday, we got the chance to have lunch at the neighbouring Tokara Vineyard. We sat and sampled the Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay over a very delicious menu…

Chris snapped me sketching this…

And then we tried 6 wines in the tasting room- this was a Swiss couple sampling some wines – there was also some amazing sculpture on the trail between the delicatessen restaurant and the tasting area.

These trees were outside the gallery  – a special commission.

The rabbits were part of the sculpture walk at Tokara.
