This was the glorious site that greeted us as we started our hike above Simons Town a while back. Little did we know that that same sun would be on it's way down by the time we got back to the car! A long but wonderful hike. We parked vehicles at the start and finish, as we ended our walk almost at the entrance of the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, quite a way from the start of our walk.
We enjoyed glorious views of False Bay and the surrounding mountains the entire day. The only surprise was the steep descent at the end of the route and to say that the sight of the vehicle was a welcome sight for sore eyes (and knees!), is an understatement!
Southern Right whales frolicking in the cold water in the bay, elusive little buck disappearing in the bushes around us and a canon shot announcing midday down in the naval base - just a few of the highlights of the day!
And as always - the customary hearts on our route...
