Visit to "The Stone House" - Market Friday hosted by @dswigle

Hello fellow Hivians, it's #marketfriday challenge once more, hosted by a very special lady @dswigle.
I would like to share my visit to the countryside in Bothas Hill Kwa Zulu Natal South Africa, which is a small town not far from where I live where craft markets are held on a regular bases.
My dearest friend @lizelle and her hubby Arthur, took Peter and I on a special trip to a quaint little place called the Stone House which is a Garden Shop and Cafe, tucked away from the hustle and bustle and noise from the traffic in a tranquil country style setting for lunch.
It was such a treat to see them again after a good few months due to lock down and covid. I felt like I was let out of prison. Lol!! Even though the weather was still misbehaving a bit, the sun trying it's utmost to peep through the gloomy clouds, we had a wonderful time together.
I would like to take you with us on our visit to "The Stone House"

Before sitting down for lunch, we took a stroll around the different sections of the house where they have all sorts of gifts and books for sale.

The entrance to the shop has lovely little souvenirs and hand crafted cards for any occasion to purchase.

The scent from a verity of fragranced soaps, lotions and sensual oils, is absolutely wonderful for the stress levels.

We walked through the outside garden shop where one could purchase garden ornaments, planters and Bonsai pots.

Beautiful ceramic hangers and bird feeders at a reasonable price, my next purchase will be the bird feeder, love lots of birds in my garden, they give me a sense of fulfillment.

We found a table outside amongst the indigence plants and trees over looking the beautiful valley of a thousand hills.

The views are magnificent, I feel very privileged to be able to share part of my world with my Hivian friends.

Lizelle and I had Pizza which was awesome, hubby had the traditional burger and chips, Arthur had baked potato with bacon.
We chattered catching up with old news and just chilled out, it was the best medicine I could have had to cheer me up in a along time, missed my friends immensely.

Me and my dearest friend of 40+ years whom I love very much, had to have our picture taken amongst the plants. Lol!!
