Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.


Date: 13th March 2010


My friend Doreen has been here for months and arranged for us to spend a night at Paternoster.  Neither of us got any Crayfish (like a Lobster but without the big claw) at all last year so we treated ourselves to a Crayfish Dinner at the Noisy Oyster.

We both love Paternoster and Doreen had a big Birthday celebration there two years ago at the fabulous 4 star B & B - Dunes.  I would call it a  Boutique Hotel and simply cannot describe how glorious it is.  There is so much attention to detail.  The owners - Dion and Gavin - were interior designers in Jo'burg who fell in love with Paternoster and decided to move down and create their own little haven.

I've been to Paternoster many times, usually taking my son or one of several friends to savour this beautiful little corner of the West Coast.  Mind you, I've never encountered such fabulous weather as we had two weeks ago. Usually you get a free exfoliation when you walk on the beach - this time the weather was sublime. 

We've watched Paternoster grow over the last few years.  In some ways it is a shame but they do insist on keeping to the spirit of the Fishing Village which it once was and still is.

Everything is getting much smarter and there are one or two great eateries particularly the Noisy Oyster which just gets better and better.

Doreen was going again next week with a friend who has had to return to England and cut short his visit - so I'm very willingly filling in.  This time I'll take some photos of the courtyard of the Noisy Oyster - it's so attractive.

For the meantime, you'll have to be content with this picture taken from our room at Dunes.
