71kM from Tableview lies Yzerfontein, an area sometimes forgotten when dashing up the R27 to Langebaan! This area has grown and it’s time for Time Out to, once again, head up the R27 to see ‘what’s-cooking’ in the town! First off there is a new Lifestyle Centre which houses the Haus of Décor and the Rosemead Artisan Bakery (remember the day we left Darling and stopped in at the Padstal on the R27 to find him sold out! – well the baker now has his own premises in Yzerfontein). We will go down to the Lifestyle Centre first and visit the Décor shop who is asking a few of the local crafters to display their wares in the courtyard of the shop.
Spend some time at Rosemead Artisan Bakery – enjoy a cup of coffee & one of his Pasteis de Nata (Portuguese custard tarts), the best in the Western Cape and then browse the Décor shop and meet the local crafters.
There will be jewelry from Creative Pearls. Also, Sandy Wilkins, (a woman of substance) who has lived in Yzer for 19 years, will have her birdfeeders (using recycled material) for sale! Sandy has been very active in Yzer and is passionate about the little town—”She just loves the Yzer Wave” – perhaps she’ll show us how to do this!
After this we will have time to take a stroll along the beachfront before lunch.
