No work weekends at Amara Farm Cottages

No work weekends at Amara Farm Cottages

This past weekend was a No Work Weekend, so we packed into the car and sped off down the south coast of South Africa to the Amara Farm Cottages just outside Plettenberg Bay. The Amara Farm Cottages were very comfortable, and being the only guests for the weekend, very private. This was exactly what we needed to relax and unwind.

As always, I had my camera with me and got to capture the weekend. I had taken both the Olympus OM-d E_M10 mk2, as well as my Minolta X300 35mm film camera, loaded with some Illford FP4. Those shots will take a bit longer to upload as I still need to send them off to be developed! No Kodak six-20 Jr. on this trip, but definitely next time.

As with most farms in South Africa, there are cats

We were lucky enough to have some great weather for the weekend. Sun, Sun and some rain. This let us enjoy the pools and get in some tanning, as well as bring some glorious rain to the region, which is in a drought at the moment.
