glorious cape town and the brilliance of @theBookmarks

darlings

a lovely, lovely, time in cape town – the work bit is (almost) over so we’ve let who-we-are-in-RL have a sleep because she did Very Well giving speeches, judging (in a good way) and everything these past few days….(and the Ladies Brunch was very moving, so glad we were asked to participate).

there’s nothing like a Veranda to feel drifty and pretty over breakfast coffee occasions. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

now this is Very Important – it’s the Bookery and it does really good things here in South Africa and yes, we stopped by and had a chat and a think about how to write about them perhaps for a publication…. *putsthinkingfaceon*OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

because books are Crucial to small (and bigger) people. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

the Book Lounge is nearby and we bought a slim volume of fiction (more on that later) and enjoyed a small conversation with the excellent sales staff. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

          we decided that as we were in the doctor Martens we would take a chance and be in the streets after dark because we remember the Take Back The Night marches and felt Strongly about women not being confined to the indoors.
