Turffontein Charity Mile

Here in Gauteng, when you speak about “a day at the races” you’re usually referring to spending a day watching horses race at Turffontein Racetrack.

It is one of the oldest horse racing venues in South Africa, built in 1887.

So in November 2016, my best friend Tiffany arranged a day out for our group of friends at the races for a charity event. We got to eat, drink, bet on horses and have fun.

We had the most delicious pulled pork sandwiches. And sipped on pink champagne like the true ladies that we are. All while raising money for charity. There’s a lot to be said for what good it does for the soul to spend a day with friends close to your heart.

I let the photos do the rest of the talking…

Coffee Flavoured Ice Cream

Best friends are the family we choose for ourselves.

 

We ended off our great day by going to Starbucks and Krispy Kreme for some delicious coffee and yummy doughnuts.♥

 

This was such a fun day out, and if you are looking to do something similar check out THIS website. They host these type of events regularly.

The Galley Beach Bar in Ballito

Late in 2014, we decided to have a spur of the moment holiday. We wanted to go to the Dolphin coast and visit our friends there too. And we obviously took Django, our Jack Russell along.

Because Django was only a few months old, accommodation wasn’t really a big problem.

So we went on a mission to find cool restaurants and places we can go where we can take him with. We came across The Galley Beach Bar and Grill in Ballito. Such an awesome place.

Not only are they pet-friendly, but they are right on the beach as well. Which meant a beautiful view while you enjoy your lunch and drinks. They also have a menu for your beloved pet! How cool is that?! Not to mention, we went back there twice.  Another bonus… it’s wheelchair friendly too!

I will definitely recommend this place if you are in Ballito. Bring your canine, enjoy a delicious meal and a walk on the beach.
