erinvale estate *south africa*

20 May 2014

Oh Erinvale Estate.

I fell in love with this place hard and fast. As we arrived through an avenue of autumn-speckled trees and the Cape Dutch architecture was unveiled, my husband and I immediately started seeing imagery. As we only took one camera on this trip, we were practically pacing, waiting for the other to finish… ooh ooh, can I have the camera again?!. We laughed at our enthusiasm. We were just so enraptured with the visual beauty around us. With beautiful manicured and tranquil gardens, friendly staff, and an adorable thatched-roof attic overlooking the courtyard and trees, (and a beautiful email from my mum), I was a very happy girl. After roaming the grounds we settled into our cosy room for a relaxed night of munching on snacks. Those nights where we settle in to relish a gorgeous hotel room are just precious too.

    Your posts on South Africa are breathtaking and for me, unexpected – I have seen various things about South Africa, its wildlife and flowers and birds, but never knew it had so many old buildings and was so pretty!

    So beautiful….it’s easy to see how you fell in love with this tranquil place. I loved reading that you and your husband shared a camera on this trip. That would certainly be a challenge for me! Beautiful photos, all of them.
