Lunch at Franschoek

We have just returned from an outing to Franschoek  the town established by the French Huguenots when they settled in the Cape in the 17th century following the persecution that followed the final revocation of the Edict of Nantes by Louis XIV.  The town is in a beautiful valley at the foot of the Boland Mountains.  I did the watercolour as we waited for our meal.
