It is the first day of Spring and the sun is shining in Mossel Bay. The weather makes me want to go outside. This weekend I am going to spend some time in the garden an maybe visit a nursery for some new plants.
During the July school holiday my husband went hunting and I went to visit my parents in George with our son, JW.
It was one of the coldest weekends of the winter but the sun was shining and we decided to go have lunch and shop for plants at the George Nursery, just outside of George. It was a while since our last visit to the nursery and we weren’t sure if the restaurant was still there but we decided to take a chance.
When we arrived at about 10:00 on Monday morning we first went to the Oud en Jonk Restaurant and we were the only customers. There is a lovely lawn with a jungle gym, slides and trampolines for kids. JW was running around to play before we even decided on a table. Some of the jungle gyms need a bit of attention (broken ropes and rusted slide) but overall it is a very nice play area. JW loved the old tractor he could climb on and "drive". (And he tried to pull every leaver it had)
There is tables inside, outside on a deck and outside on the grass next to the play area. We decide to sit outside in the sun where we can keep an eye on JW. (JW was chasing some ducks around the grass and into the dam and we had to stop him otherwise he would have ended in the water with them. One of the staff came to close the gate to the dam soon after that).
We ordered coffee and had very tasty tramazzini’s with chips and the prices were reasonable. After we finished our meal we went next door t the nursery and bought some plants. The last time we visited we were disappointed with the options available but this time we were happy. There are lots of plants to choose from and the prices were great.
We visited again about a month later and enjoyed it again. They also have a Sunday lunch that sound delicious and we want to try it out some time.
