Marthina and Francois

We went to down Cape Town for a December holiday to visit my cousin (I talked him into going about 3 weeks prior to going on leave – so I obviously did not suspect anything).It was the evening of 23 December that I’ve asked my now fiancè, if we could go to the beach the next morning to watch the sunrise (can I just mention that he is not a morning person at all) and he agreed. As the days are very long in the Cape Town summers, we arrived at Bloubergstrand at 5:00 AM, still quite dark outside. Without my knowledge, he researched the perfect spot on the beach with the most amazing view including table mountain and the ocean in front of us. This was done the day before. As I was blown away with the beauty of nature and not paying much attention to where he was, he set up the perfect picnic on the beach. I thought that it was a bit strange and couldn’t understand why my cousin and aunti would’ve done this for us. He, once again without my knowledge, liaised with them the week before to arrange a basket etc. Anyway, to cut a long story short he continually persuaded me to eat something. With much effort from him, and me explaining why I don’t feel like eating anything (because it was so early and my stomach was still asleep), he suggested to skip the meals and eat the desert, and there it was, a white gold ring on top of the chocolate mousse desert. He was down on bended knee, slightly old fashioned but okay. I was very surprised. He popped the question, I said yes, and from that moment I was the luckiest girl in the world!
