Having recently returned back from a weekend away in Barrydale with my mom, (not forgetting our two Yorkshire terriers that accompanied us) I thought I would share some of Barrydale’s best stops.  Barrydale is approximately a 3 hour drive from Cape Town. Its a small farming village situated between the Overberg region and the Klein Karoo.  Its not a very big town in comparison to other “dorps” we have been too.

This weekend (Saturday and Sunday 19-20 March and each day between 10AM and 5AM) art of numerous local professional artists and guest artists (like Yvonne de Wit) are on display at diverse locations in Baardskeerdersbos in the Overberg, Western Cape, South Africa.

A stroll between the diverse artist houses gives the visitor sometimes the impression that the BBossers live and work in a different time period. Park you car somewhere, walk and see.
