Greyton in the Overberg, Western Cape

Greyton in the Overberg, Western Cape

Our Cape holiday Oct/Nov 2017

After an interesting stop in Genadenal, our plan was to have a leisurely walk-about and lunch in Greyton.   We had spent some time at the Moravian Mission in Genadenal, which, although terribly interesting, left us not much time in Greyton.   It appears that Sunday isn’t the best day to wander through the village, or maybe we picked the wrong Sunday as a couple of places were closed, one due to renovations.  I believe the weekly Saturday Markets are fabulous .. a must for our next visit

The Post House, a pub where we had planned to have a pre-lunch drink, was originally a Post Office – dated 1860, was closed for renovations ..

Our second choice for pre-lunch drinks was this bar.  That too was closed !!

Along Vigne Lane (above) are cottages and houses built between 1854 and 1860

The Oak and Vigne , a popular restaurant for both locals and visitors, where we had a light meal ….

Could this be a score board for the Greyton County Club Croquet ?   I have no idea !!

After lunch we took a drive around the village admiring old and new houses and their beautiful gardens …

Hubby and I are flying down to the Cape again this weekend to spend a few days with my sister in law, who is fighting cancer, and my brother.  Time permitting I shall endeavour to complete my Oct/Nov 2017 series before we depart.  It would seem a pity not to share photos from Stellenbosch wineries Ernie Els (wine tasting) and Rust en Vrede (wine tasting and lunch) and Saturday morning coffee and market at Somerset West’s Lourensford
