It was early morning when Paul and I picked a dirt road and drove for almost two hours to a place called Marracuene, where the sky is cleaner and the air has the softness of unpoluted spaces. Once arrived, we crossed the mighty Incomáti river thanks to a small ferryboat dated from World War II, and then followed another country road until we reached the perfect spot around 11am. To give you an idea of how perfect it was: our back, left and right.
We went picnicking to celebrate the arrival of summer with a bottle of SA red wine, the best chips in the world and fruit. On the way we also bought wild bananas and home prepared cashew nuts. Nice day and a serious candidate for best of September! You don’t have to envy us if you celebrate autumn or winter. Winter picnics are great and our fave for evenings at home!
