A poor start to the day became a wonderful morning anyway.
Terry Quirk, from the Knysna Knights Chess Club, and i were to give another chess lesson in Khayalethu but none of the kids turned up – apparently there’d been a festival in Plettenberg Bay the day before and the kids had chosen to sleep over.
To make the best of wasted plans, especially considering Terry had driven all the way from Sedgefield, we took advantage of this perfect weather day by going for coffee on Knysna’s famous East Head…
…which is synonymous with the East Head Café where we were reminded that they definitely remain one of the exceptional restaurants in town.
Service was excellent! Maricharl Kriger, our waitress, was perfect… and kind enough to laugh at all my jokes.
Jerome Simonis, East Head Café’s owner, then delighted us with a complimentary breakfast special of strawberries and cream on thick, yummy banana bread.
Leslie Pieters, co-owner of 4 restaurants in Knysna, was there with his family for a good meal too. It’s a definite compliment when persons such as he take time off at a fellow restauranteur’s establishment.
The view of the blue sea, turquoise estuary and sunny sky completed our wonderful morning.
