LOOK OUT FOR THOSE GOLDEN OLDIES
Do you like golden oldies with a story? Then this is just what you were looking for at Mauritz Lammers Antiques. From crockery brick-a-brac to stately old furniture and much loved books. Take your time to marvel at all the pieces on display and take some home if you wish. You just might find something that you like here.
A good place to keep you busy on those unexpected rainy days.
Where? On the N2 opposite the Sasol garage Kraaibosch, George.
THE OLD TOLL HOUSE ON THE MONTAGU PASS
This is a historic building that was lovingly restored by some local enthusiasts and also the very first toll road in the Garden Route. On a Saturday morning you can have pancakes and coffee to support a worthy cause.
What to see? Admire the lush green mountainside and fynbos.
WORLD FAMOUS POTTERY
Did you know that the world renowned and sought after Wonki Ware factory is situated right in the heart of George? Yes, those magnificent masterpieces that you buy at Poetry and the likes are made here right on our doorstep. Spoil yourself and warm you heart by visiting the factory in York Street.
Really? You can pick up less than perfect pieces at reduced prices.
CAST IN STONE
Near the top-end of York Street you will discover the stone church of St Marks Cathedral with its interesting history. Read more about it on another blog of mine under the heading St Marks.
It is always difficult to tell the erratic times that it is open for visits, but try your luck!
Reason for a visit? Because the stonework is well preserved and stained glass work is outstanding.
TAKE A WALK AT THE GARDEN ROUTE DAM
If you feel like some exercise, take the family, the dog or a canoe down to the dam and enjoy the scenery. Remember this is the Garden Route and we have four seasons in one day so check the weather forecast before leaving home and inform a friend of your estimated time back at base.
