• Backyard cooking: Loving our Piccolo wood fired pizza oven

    You guys we’ve made the best investment ever.  For the longest time I wanted a wood fired pizza oven. I mean who doesn’t want one after seeing Jamie Oliver cook in his wood fired outdoor pizza oven and displaying his culinary skills.

    Then last year, after visiting one of the malls, I saw an exhibition of portable stainless steel Piccolo wood fired pizza ovens.  The design was perfect with its remarkable workmanship.  However how I visualised it, it never really fitted into our then backyard.  Needless to say, I took a pamphlet and a business card and headed home.

    My Sunday Photo – Kraalbaai

    Sunday Photo Kraalbaai

    This week my Sunday Photo features the beautiful Kraalbaai. A hidden gem situated in the West Coast National Park. In order to access this beach you need to drive through the nature reserve. You sure to catch a glimpse of ostriches, tortoises, gemsbok and eland. However there are many more other wildlife in the park – so be on the lookout.

    My Sunday Photo – Sunset Llandudno

    Sunday Photo Sunset Llandudno

    My Sunday Photo was taken two weeks ago, capturing  the sunset over the ocean. We stopped at Llandudno whilst driving from Hout Bay to Camps Bay. Although the sun sets every day, we don’t really notice it. Unless you on top of a hill or mountain. It also instantly captivates you as you witness the sunset over the ocean. The view makes you want to reach for your camera to capture the moment. As the bright orange colour slowly fades; nature’s beauty mesmerises you. It brings a feeling of calmness over you. This display is over within minutes and then dusk begins to fall.

    Have a blessed Sunday all!
