Still time to enjoy a ride during Autumn: "the second spring"

It seems like ages ago since I put "keyboard to screen"!  The Southern hemisphere is adorned with the beauty of autumn colors, to borrow the quote
Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.
Lauren DeStefano, Wither

So has been my quest at the moment, soaking in everything autumny.  I have been pinning autumn ideas on Pinterest

We visited Cullinan once again on Monday, (see one of my earlier posts on this little town Having two days off in the week and being able to get back on the bike was pure bliss!  We left a little later than usual and instead of a breakfast run we ended up having lunch at Harries pancake Cullinan.  Reason for this is the cooler autumn mornings...

I ordered a Lamb bredie with basil pesto pancake, accompanied with a mint sauce...

Hubby ordered the savory mince pancake with grated cheddar cheese:

Although in South Africa we don't celebrate thanksgiving during Fall, I would like to use this time to reflect on the beauty around and am thankful for all the many blessings!

This is a beautiful video to end off which is set to the music: "La Petite Fille de la Mer" by Vangelis...


  1. Lorelle - Fall is my absolute, most favorite time of year ... until spring comes that is... then I love summer too and there is nothing as beautiful as the first snowfall of winter.....
    Love the breakfast montage, kind of makes me hungry.

  2. Lovely! What a great sunny day! I hope you have a long warm autumn!

  3. I must admit Karen I am not too fond of winter here. We don't have snow and everything dies in the garden, and the bike stays parked in the garage for most of the time. Luckily though, we don't have long winters!
    Thanks for the compliments :-)

  4. Thanks Dar, I am also hoping for a loooooong warm autumn :-D

  5. Lovely images, we have finally shed our winter and you are just starting into that's the way to eat pancakes. Have lovely rides until you are forced to park the bike for a bit!

  6. Thanks Suzi, we are going to do just that, get in as much riding as possible before the winter chill!! Enjoy your warmer weather and lots of biking to look forward to!
