One year later I’ve finally managed to figure out to recover my old site database. I’ll be making some changes around here for the purpose of nothing in particular. Frankly, I’ll probably not write much of anything and instead focus on JB Woodruff Design and my new JB Woodruff Photography site.
Hard to believe it’s almost been 2 weeks since we left Cape Town. Been going through the photos and found one that I never got to post. It’s the outside of the building we lived in; 220 Westside Studios. Our place is one floor down from the top and the one with the windows open.
Been back home for over a week now and settling back into life. One thing I immediately noticed when we returned is just how green it is around here. Not that things aren’t green in Cape Town, but you don’t really have the forests or trees everywhere. Perhaps it’s the different types of trees, city… Continue reading Green
Crunch weekend before the big day was held at Kresten’s place. Here are the photos: http://photography.jbwoodruff.com/Travel/Cape-Town-2013/2013420-Demo-Day-Prep-Weekend/
If you happen to make your way to Plettenburg Bay along the Garden Route in South Africa then I highly suggest you make a stop and walk around the Robberg Nature Reserve. It’s a nature reserve on a small peninsula extending from the oceanside town. The hike will take you about 2 hours if you… Continue reading Robberg Nature Reserve
After two long flights we are now officially back in the States. Uneventful; just the way I like it. Feels like it was all a dream. Luckily we were able to change our flight from Minneapolis back to Cincinnati. We now have the whole day to enjoy with Mike, Sara, Aasta and Sigg before our… Continue reading Back in the U.S. of A.
What you’re seeing is the remains of our second helping of triple fried chips from Birds on Bree street. Easily top 5 fried potatoes I’ve ever had.
The end is in sight and we’re enjoying our last full day in the city that has been our home for the past 3 months. Lists are my specialty so I’ll share a bit about things we loved in no particular order: – The seafood – Table Mountain to wake up to – Sunsets and… Continue reading My Ode to Cape Town
So we have one more full day here and we thought we’d pack a picnic and hike up Devil’s Peak. We woke up to this sight. Now on to Plan B > Figure out what Plan B is.
I have a mountain of photos to get through and upload, but here’s a gallery I’ve uploaded from my second hike of Lion’s Head on April 20th. Got some great shots this day. Photo Gallery: http://photography.jbwoodruff.com/Travel/Cape-Town-2013/2013420-Lions-Head/
I know my posts have been all over the place and things haven’t been in order. The first step is admitting I have a problem and it’s something I’m working on. But seriously, we saw some cheetahs today! Sure, they were in big cages, but pretty cool stuff nevertheless.
5 times in 10 days. Not too bad.
Clouds this morning so we thought we’d do some meditating.
The program has officially come to an end. It culminated with our Demo Day this past Thursday, April 25th. The format was 10 startups pitching their business ideas to potential investors and media.
After hiking Lion’s Head this past weekend we decided that once a week isn’t enough. We woke up this morning at 5:30am and headed out in the dark. I was joined by Arnaud, Stefano and Rahul. What a great way to wake up and watch the sun rise.
Nice hike this morning with Arnaud, Stefano, Eliana (Stefano’s daughter), Nick and Jess. Great times, but we found a pocket on the mountain where you could float. Pretty wild stuff.
The night before Shannon headed off around the world, we headed to The Greenhouse for dinner. An amazing place with very creative dishes. I suggest it if you’re really in the mood for something different and special.
