Franschhoek Bastille celebration

We went on Sunday, which was very civilised, although the music was a bit loud. 
We were told that Saturday was a maelstrom of enthusiastic consumption
We started with tastes of bubbly from Boschendal, Topiary and Graham Beck

Oysters from Wild peacock, pancakes from the Hospice and venison Bitterballen from Le Quartier Francaise

The best value lunch came from Mont Rochelle

There was amusement for all ages

The barrel rolling race was a popular diversion

and there were plenty of other things to enjoy

Neil Jewell showed his delicious cured meats
Nicole from Glenwood with their delicious chardonnay

Solms Delta attracted a crowd of enthusiasts
after a most enjoyable day.
