Family Reunion at Somerset Gift

The whole family got together for a long weekend at Somerset Gift, a beautiful farm getaway outside Swellendam, in the foothills of the Langeberg Mountains.  We occupied three very comfortable cottages and were able to enjoy wonderful mountain walks and all manner of fun and fishing on the lakes.  Wading through the Buffeljags River allowed one to reach the mountains with their forest and fynbos walks and deep dark pools to cool off in.  Many fish were caught and released and we managed to identify around 80 birds in the immediate area.  Given the wonderful camaraderie and plentiful good food and wine, we all had a great time and were able to reaffirm our family ties.
