Drinks at Cafe de Port

Four figures came waffling down the street with their dim lit cigarettes lighting the way. They aren’t the only curious fellows you see floating around Cafe de Port in Brignogan. Sprawled on the jet red chairs are two American tourists, drawling loudly. Behind me is an elderly couple, and just to their left, a group…

A Winter Country Getaway in McGregor

A Winter Country Getaway in McGregor

It felt good to be nestled in my corner of the world again. It had been a while since I was back in the little village of McGregor where I grew up. I take a moment to breathe in the silence. I arrived on Friday night a while after sunset. The road trip up from McGregor…

Weekend Coffee at Mischu Cafe, Sea Point
