Welcome to 2017!
Wyndford has been busy….full of laughter, chatter and quiet moments… Wonderful to hear children running up the driveway before breakfast, bounding with energy and exuberance! Others may be a little more sedate as they amble up the tree lined lane for a late afternoon stroll before dinner.
We have seen Christmas come and go, with grateful thanks to Santa, who remembered our co-ordinates and delivered on time! The kitchen did us proud with festive fare including starters of salmon with balsamic caviar and delightful mille feuille for dessert. A summer buffet up at the pool for lunch meant everyone chilled out and enjoyed the good weather.
A few heavy rainfalls up river, gave us the opportunity to go tubing down the Caledon… you would be forgiven for thinking you were floating in a chocolate milkshake…but being hosed down before heading for a swim is all part of the fun.
The new year was ushered in with a snoek braai, fish pie, octopus viennas…shark watermelon, chocolate boats and jelly fish.. well, what else would pirates be eating?!! After cannon toss, human battleships and many other games we (remembering the extra second) heralded 2017 with our very own rendition of auld lang syne! George and Lindy will now be known as Sea Dog Edgar and Silver Lilly!
A slow start to the year saw us all enjoying a continental breakfast picnic with smoothies for that extra pick me up.
Local musician, Salome, treated us to an afternoon of carols and will be joining us again this week for music in the gardens. Also something to look forward to is our back to school special with a difference….. as it only applies if you are over sixty! Stay from 15 -19 January 2017 and receive a 50% discount - yes really! Call us now and start packing.
Starting the year off well will be our monthly draw winner Sonja Meyer. Congratulations, we look forward to welcoming you to Wyndford for your two night stay out of season.
