The beautiful Eastern Free State clothed in winter garb as we get another snow forecast for this week…
Johan and Wessel completed the Polar Bear Plunge held annually in this very chilly dam – hats off to them- the rest of us stood well wrapped up on the sidelines and cheered (very important job that…)
The sweet peas have been pruned, once again, by our resident duiker as has the rhubard (well, a little more than pruned, unfortunately) by the rascal piglets who broke out of the enclosure. It would also appear, that the dassies have won…. ! Our garden at the front gate was doing fantastically with Namaqualand daisies shooting up, well, that’s history – is there anything dassies don’t eat?
Talking of eating we have tried a new lunch dish…. Bunny Chows (how ironic). Slowly roasted mutton in a freshly baked roll, served with an apple slaw, definitely got the Yum and thumbs up!
The Stargazing weekend was a hit with young and old, our thanks to Robert for his enthusiastic assistance. The familiarity of recognized faces was dealt a blow, when Angelina – head waitress for nearly 20 years – retired recently.
Don’t delay in booking your time away, there is still availability for the long weekend in September and the school holidays - for anything sooner, visit the website to catch any last minute specials.
Joining us soon will be Barbara Parks - our monthly draw winner of a two night stay out of season for two people! It could be you - head off to the website to enter on www.wyndford.co.za and we will keep you up to date on www.facebook.com/WyndfordHolidayFarm
To close, we have this little black rabbit, Peter, who squeezes …. But maybe that’s a story for another time! Until then, stay well and warm, greetings from the Wyndford Team!
