Hout Bay Heaven

Sentinel Peak’s distinctive shape looms over the picturesque harbour of Hout Bay in the mid distance. A gentle swell rolls in from the southern Atlantic ocean, ending its journey on the bay’s white sand beach.  Van Morrison and other like artists’ songs fill the breakfast nook’s dining space as we “tuck into” another sumptuous full cooked morning feast at the Amblewood bed and breakfast.  Trevor, our gracious host, beams with pride as we “mmmm” and “ah” after tasting the perfectly cooked and wonderfully presented meal.

Themba, Trevor and June’s beautiful golden labrador, wanders in occasionally to check on our progress.  He knows that he will get to savour any left over delights and we are sure that he is hoping we will not eat all the food on our plates.  When Trevor comes out to top up our tea and coffee he gives Themba “the look” and Themba reluctantly exits the dining room.  He knows that it is only a matter of time before the left overs are laid before him.  He is the master of the house after all.

Patiently Waiting

The views, the atmosphere, the food, the hosts and the company of my Princess make the breakfast experience at Amblewood a very pleasurable experience indeed.

Life’s very good.
