Lunch at Tokara

On our last day in South Africa
we drove from Franschhoek to the airport
and stopped for lunch at the Tokara vineyard.

It was the last in a series of spectacular meals,
and we enjoyed every delicious mouthful.

[A strict regime is required
now we are back at home.]

Tokara specialises in contemporary cuisine
and there is a strong Japanese influence:
sushi rice, fresh fish, oriental seasoning
and lightly steamed vegetables.

We sat at the window, looking down the valley
talking about our wonderful holiday,
It was only eight days since we landed
but we had squeezed a lot into
the short time that we were there.


The most important event was Graduation Day
and if you look through the trees
you can see the university campus
where MasterM studied for the last four years.

So many photographs to organise,
so many memories.
