Onyesha encore.....!




Oui I did it again! Another portrait shot.. I'm finding this resolution so much easier than the 'lose five kilos' :) Hayley (right) and Shani looked after Aimee and I so beautifully yesterday when we paid a return visit to Onyesha Spa only 30 minutes on the freeway from home, merci beaucoup girls, we will be back.. perfect for that special treat, believe me after the last few weeks we both needed a little 'cocooning' :).  You can read my post describing our last visit here.


Driving through the gates of Onyesha is almost a little surreal, like entering into a secret Eden.. verdant comes to mind! After a refreshing herbal tea we were led down through the tall trees, alive with the chatter of birds, to the lakeside villa.. our view below, where we were brushed, massaged and polished to a state of total bliss.. niiiice! that's so much more than just nice :) We have a 44C day ahead of us today, bet you the beaches will be packed.. madness! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, take care and stay warm..or cool depending!

  13. Great photos. I love your little red monks. There is the perfect place for them in my garden I tried to find them on the internet but could not. Where did you get them?

  14. I remember the place and being ever so slightly jealous the first time round! Could you tell me how you do it? I mean ask people? I occasionally get out of my shy shell but still not enough...

  15. Such a beautiful setting and the girls are cute as well! You might get another painting similar to your water lily one, out of that fourth photo. The colors are nice and it should work with your style!
