On their first day on The Mountains in the Sea trail, Stuart & Lysanne learnt just how changeable the weather in Cape Town can be. They started their epic walk in fine weather but by the time they had reached the summit at Maclears Beacon, the mist was thick and the visibility was poor. As a result we have no photographic evidence that they actually summitted Table Mountain!
However, day two was pretty close to a perfect day – great visibility and not too hot. They clearly appreciated it!
The flowers were fantastic. Have a look at this beautiful wild hibiscus (Hibiscus aethiopicus).
. . . and these exquisite ninepin heaths (Erica Mammosa)
The scenery was spectacular. In the picture below you can see Chapman’s Peak in the background. You’ll have to ask Lysanne about Chapman’s Peak . . . because my camera batteries died before we arrived there.
