Another amazing weekend in the much loved Struisbaai. I've been coming here for Summer holidays since 2006. Over summer holidays this sleepy Town becomes incredibly busy, even buying a loaf of bread becomes a hassle with all the people around. But, the rest of the year it is just perfect for a quiet weekend away to unwind and get your thoughts in order.
So of coarse I had to stop buy some of the stores for some shopping while I was there, how else? One of my favorite shops in the whole world, South Bound, is situated in the ironically tiny “Struisbaai Mall”. The owner of the store definitely has incredible taste and I always find myself wanting to take home half of the store. This time I held back and just bought a Mothersday gift for the most incredible mom in the world! But it was tough.
Next to south Bound is a little craft store which I find very useful each time I’m in town. I always have something I want to make and this place stocks all the crafting necessities.
In this Mall there is also a nursery and Hardware store, but I didn't need anything from there this time round.
Around the corner the are also a few treasures. Gifts & Gold has beautiful Jewelry, clothes and a few other random gifts. You can just imagine how crowded this place is in December with some last minute Christmas shopping, oh the joys of summer holidays!
What would a coastaltown be without a Shellshop... sigh... Like the name says it’s a shop full of shells, and icecream.. and.. ok a whole lot of other random thigs!
Oh what a weekend , full of family, the ocean, board games, reading, sleeping more sleeping. Just what the doctor ordered!!
