Pear Tree Cottage - Cam Theme - 42

Pete'sCam goes a little further afield for a while...

The village of McGregor has been described as "the best preserved and most complete example of mid-nineteenth century townscape in the Cape Province".

It's also known as the town where "time stood still".

Nothing like a comfortable place to rest one's head after a 'busy' day of touring around the town and surrounding areas of McGregor

A great little bathroom... the shower is to the right

Looking from the inside out for a perspective view
under the grape-vined pergola for a shady spot to sit and enjoy a cold one
Adding a little quirkyness with one of the ornaments of Pear Tree Cottage on the wall of the BBQ area and back garden

Looking out from the BBQ area of Pear Tree Cottage onto the back lawn, garden and beyond

The little wall under the grape vine pergola is the BBQ area
