I hike up Table Mountain on a regular basis. And I get to meet many special people.
Yesterday I hiked on Table Mountain with a very special couple – Chris & Margot Brauchli. They are special because they are the most senior people ever to hike The Mountain with me. Chris hiked the entire route – Tafelberg Road to the highest point on Table Mountain and down to Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. What is more, the temperatures in Cape Town hit 32 degrees C yesterday (for those of you left behind in the last century, that’s almost 90 deg F). It would be rude for me to divulge their ages, but let me just say that (if you read this column real soon) they are not yet 80 years old.
