A sisterly chat on the patio

Aww!! What memories!!

We also had time for meals again at the delightful Stokers' Inn - a restaurant at a previous train station. Kloof has at least two restaurants that have become favourites amongst Patsi and Joe's visitors namely the Stokers' Inn and Pot and Kettle with its spectacular view of the Valley of a 1000 Hills but Spriggs - with delicious health foods - is catching up fast on them... 

See how we enjoyed our meal at the Stokers' Inn. I have a separate page for Pot and Kettle where Kait and Joe played host and hostess to Malisa...

With Patsi's family

Glen, Patsi's son-in-law, treated us to a wonderful braai...and the children instantly too to Malisa as another granny...while Emma had a special affinity for Kalie - maybe he reminded her of her grandpa?
