The last week was very busy. Actually for more than a week it was crazy at work and busy at home. Last weekend we did make some time to relax and to celebrate our one-year wedding anniversary. We decided to spend the weekend in Swellendam. It is only a two-hour drive from Mossel Bay and we could drive there Friday after work.
We booked a room at the Flametree Guesthouse for two nights and about 15:30 on Friday afternoon we were on our way. There were a lot of road works between Mossel Bay and Albertinia. Then we made a quick stop at Riversdale for some snacks and arrived in Swellendam at about 18:00.
We had some trouble to find the guesthouse (My mistake for misreading the directions) but eventually found it and checked in. We were greeted first by the two dogs and then the owner. We were staying in the Joy room, a beautiful room with high ceilings and wood floors. Isabel, the owner, was very friendly and gave us great advise of places to eat in walking distance.
