*Sage* Ballito {Café}

I had a very quick visit to Ballito a few weekends ago, to a) fetch my lovely Save the Dates for our Wedding from the oh-so-talented ladies at Ruby and the Swallow, and b) to have a coffee and catch up with one of my oldest school friend, Sandra. She suggested we head to Sage, just on the outskirts of Ballito for some good food and a vibey atmosphere.  Here are just a few snaps of our time spent drinking cappuccino's, wandering around the lovely premises, and eating the odd slice of cake...

Sage is so much more than just a cafe, complete with garden and lifestyle decor, kiddies play area, boutique clothing store and salon, you could easily find yourself spending your whole day there. And with lots and lots of goodies to keep the kids busy, Mom can relax with a good cup of coffee and have her nails done, all without moving an inch :)

*Barn Swallows* Mount Moreland, KZN

A few off ramps up from Ballito (back towards Durban on the N2) is a wonderful place to watch the over 3 million barn swallows settle down for the evening. The reedbed roost site the Barn Swallows have chosen is a wetland, locally known as the Lake Victoria Wetland, it is covered with indigenous Phragmitiesreeds. The Barn Swallows at Mount Moreland and their roosting habitat are now recognized as a world famous Barn Swallow site and IBA (International Birding Area). Now doesn't that sound impressive. 
Not sure where the swallows were yesterday, because we were only graced with the presence of a few stragglers. So no pictures of a blackened sky, but instead a few cheesey pic's. Enjoy!

Our friends Carmen & Abrie joined us for the weekend, as well as Farmboy looking handsome.
A very sweet little begger, with the most incredible eyes.
