Monday March 27th –
The view from the surf lodge was taken in one last time that morning before we drove off, looking for breakfast in the town of Jeffrey’s Bay.
During the drive there, my first flamingos were spotted 😁
They’re actually super weird… which I pretty much knew, but seeing their spindly long legs work in real life brought it more into perspective😋
‘InFood – Coffee Society’ was where we sat down for a drink and bite to eat and though it was one of the cooler ‘looking’ dishes and drink serving, it was probably the one of the least tasty 😬
It was a nice sunny spot though and we enjoyed the weather from our table beside the window.
I was also able to get a blog posted so it worked out well.

Desserts made right there, graced display tables near the entrance.
An eclectic energy surrounded us as we sipped our lemon grass and spinach juices and enjoyed their taste, which I described as a deliciously sweet yard in our mouth 😋
Breakfasts were ordered and after much contemplation over the large and interesting selection, I opted for the semi adventurous option, the Super Bowl.
