Photodiary | Cape Town and Kalk Bay

It’s a very special thing to have friends in your life that are as valuable to you when you were ten, and first met when nervously discussing Goosebumps, as they are now. My friend Rachel is one of those people. She recently moved to Cape Town to do important doctor things, and as a special treat bought me plane tickets to come visit her.

It was a really wonderful weekend, and I even got her to model with the herringbone cowl I knitted for her as a thank-you present! I’m going to publish the pattern on my Runny Babbit  blog and on Your Family magazine soon.

Here are some photos from a pretty special weekend.
