Don’t confuse nudity with sex, my experiences at Naturist Resorts

A recently watched episode of Seinfeld, ‘The Apology’, reminded me of some past experiences. Stripping off my clothes in the car before entering a naturist (nudist) resort was terrifying.

My daughter’s fiance Duncan will make a great son-in-law.  He endeared himself even further when he took me to Leafy Greens for what may have been my best lunch ever.  Leafy Greens Cafe is a vegan and vegetarian restaurant in Muldersdrift.  Although I love vegetarian fare I am neither vegan nor vegetarian.  The buffet lunch was a visual feast which ...

Golden Rod Nursery in Pomona Gauteng

Sometimes it takes me an awful long time to discover places.  In my 14 years in Joburg I had often heard of Uncle Tim’s Cabin in Benoni, it was only a few weeks ago that we visited there for the first time.  Yesterday we planned to visit a nursery and I suggested that we try to find one which we ...
