Mozart and Connie’s Cottages

There is an exquisite garden in Montagu in the Western Cape of South Africa. The garden is part of Connie’s Cottages which are self catering. The garden is much more extensive than shown in the one picture below. The beautifully planned garden reminded me of the theme from Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto. Recently we stayed at the Cottages. When we returned home I played the clip below as a small thank you to the owner Connie, for a really happy visit. And. Thank you Connie for allowing me to play your precious piano.

This post was not solicited. It is a genuine thank you

Montagu. An exciting tractor ride. A delicious meal.

Just outside Montagu in the Western Cape you can go up a high mountain. It is amazing. You go in the trailer pulled by a tractor. What a view! At the end of the ride you come down to a magnificent lunch. Have a look at the pictures and you will see why it is a great thing to do. There are 7 pictures.
