The Whale Trail is a remarkable Cape Hike. The first days take one through beautiful fynbos vegetation and over hills with magnificent vistas, but then it drops to the coast and one walks along the sea for days.
Here the focus shifts away from flowers to marine creatures and breathtaking scenery. Although there is less fynbos to see, this collection of gooseneck barnacles were reminiscent of an abstract flower arrangement.
Dolphins are reguarly seen on along this section of the Whale Trail.
And we also found this nesting colony of Cape Cormorants that manage to raise their chicks on these dizzying cliffs battered by the wind.
