Oep ve Koep - Kobus vd Merwe

Yes, by now you should have seen this name somewhere...
He is the South African acclaimed chef, Kobus van der Merwe who runs a one man show at the quirky West Coast Garden Restaurant Oep ve Koep!

He is also the West Coast Restaurant Reviewer for the site Eat Out! And was featured in many magazines over the last few months...

We were there!  His service was exceptional, when we arrived the staff informed us that the Lunch menu was still being conjure up by Kobus, who later came to explain the ingredients and the details about each dish in person-  Wow!
Each dish is carefully constructed, one could hear him prepare it in his tiny kitchen, and the aromas, aawwh delicious!

Take the scenic drive to Paternoster, a mere 1 1/2 hours drive north of Cape Town on the R27, passing through Vredenburg, and explore this delightful gem yourself!

The Fisherman's Dream

We were fortunate enough to have spent a day at Paternoster - 
Soaking up the African sun and taking some time to photograph a west coast cottage.  The interior was decorated by Rona Keeler, this is what they call home! Rona and hubby Roscoe spend their days in this picturesque fisherman's village where they rent out two pristine holiday cottages, we will feature the Beachhouse soon, if you are still in doubt where to spend Christmas, this will definitely have your heart settled! To contact Rona or Roscoe send us a mail here!

Check out the delicious lunch we had at Oep ve Koep, tomorrow!

Today we were able to light up a few faces!
The future for most of these individuals has no cloud with a silver lining...  Hopefully next year we will manage to find more support and be able to reach a whole lot more children and elderly in Graafwater South.  The ones featured were the only ones we could track down in the streets that are lined with little ones, pets and parents all excited to see where father
Christmas is popping in next... 

Today just made us realize how much we have to say thank you for, and how easy it has become for us to take our multitude of blessings for granted.
