A Perfect Afternoon

It's a lazy Sunday afternoon. We enjoy a bottle of chilled white wine overlooking the valley on an expansive rolling lawn, dotted by vineyards below. After the bottle is finished, we move onto the terrace for a lovely brunch. Then back to the lawn for more wine and finally coffee. Now the sun is going down and most of the restaurant guests have left. It's our paradise of fading sunlight and a slight wine buzz. It's just me, my friend and his girlfriend and the restaurant owners and their parents who are visiting from London with all of their children frolicking on the lawn. Did I mention we're on a hillside overlooking Franschhoek? Such a perfect afternoon.
