Weekend Greetings from Napier Patatfees

This weekend 16 and 17 June is THE annual weekend that many from around go to Napier to enjoy the Napier Patatfees. Lots of things to do like MTB-races, Scarecrow competition, Marathon, Parade (a sort of carnival), markets and lots of food. Here some pictures of the past two editions.

Also worthwhile a visit is Private Gallery Napier on the main road 100 meters pass the church towards Bredasdorp. Usually open by appointment but during this weekend both days open between 9 and 5. That’s where you can buy budget friendly prints of Overberg landscapes or original design (and handmade) jewellery made of South African Sterling Silver combined with naturally bonded earth.

That Gallery ….

… on the main road in Napier (first yellow building 100 meters past DR-church towards Bredasdorp)…

 

Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 June (Napier Patatfees) open between 9 AM and 5 PM (other days by appointment).

There is a little gift for every visitor!!!

Birdhouse weekend greetings

If Willemine J Lieuwes from Napier has her say the whole of the Overberg and the rest of the world will become one Birds Paradise. Willemine makes beautiful birdhouses for an affordable prize.
