View on the town we live in
(Napier, Overberg district, Western Cape, South Africa)
Rocket Science in the village
My wife Yvonne makes the best truffles in town and the rest of South Africa and maybe even the best in the world. It’s an old Dutch recipe and part of the ingredients have to come from abroad such as the cocoa for the simple reason there is no premium quality cocoa available in South Africa.
It’s a hobby between her jewellery design and jewellery creating activities; all unique pieces and genuine handmade.
But this is about truffles. This morning she sold them on a market in the village and guess what? Sold out within the shortest possible time!!! Picture left: Yvonne flanked by Italian master chef Roberto and his South African wife Marissa.
Lawnmower in Elim
Why buy a mechanical lawnmower if we have many natural ones in Elim.

There you go!
Until tomorrow there is the art event Creative Napier.
17 artists from the village present their work in their home studios and in venues in the village.
My work can be seen at Studio98 along the main road together with that of jewellery designs by Yvonne de Wit, a few miniature steam engines by Kevin Doveton and ‘Tales of the forest’ by Marthie Gerber.
The first two days of this event were very successful.
Thank you for your support.
