Shapes in Franschhoek

This is the official description of Franschhoek for those of you who have never been there! "Nestled between towering mountains in the beautiful Cape winelands lies the magnificent Franschhoek Valley. This is the food and wine heartland of the country, where splendid wines are grown and our top chefs create international cuisine. Here breath-taking scenery, warm hospitality, world class cuisine and the finest wines all combine to create lasting memories.
Spectacular vineyards cover these mountain slopes settled more than 300 years ago by the Huguenots, who brought with them their age-old French wine and food culture. This is a valley rich in history centered around a picturesque village of friendly, welcoming people.
The wonderful spectrum of visitor accommodation ranges from internationally renowned auberges and guest houses to self-catering cottages on wine farms and much more besides.
In the village you will find wonderful crafts, art and antique shops and galleries. The main street is lined with coffee shops and restaurants. Only 45 minutes from Cape Town Franschhoek is the ideal base while you explore the entire Cape winelands."

For us it was a day of visiting the famous Car Museum and having lunch in the village. These are some interesting geometric shapes and arrangements I noticed while we were having lunch. I love things that are systematically arranged creating patterns with shapes and colours.

Wine, wine and more wine with a few bottles of softdrinks added in for a bit of colour!
