Look beyond

The Cape coast is characterised by having enormous forests of kelp (Ecklonia maxima). These remarkable plants grip the substrate with a holdfast and grow rapidly to the sea surface, where they maintain their position by way of a gas-filled bladder that ensures that their fronds are maximally exposed to sunlight for photosynthesis. Besides being a characteristic feature of our shores, these kelp forests are vitally important in the ecology of the area. They act as a baffle, reducing the strength of the high-energy currents and providing a protected zone in which...

An adventure with David Livingstone

This week I enjoyed a peach of a day with David Livingstone - Seriously! His family came along as well, and his wife's name is Debbie - not Mary Moffat. He hails from New York rather than Scotland and he is not exactly a protestant missionary. You see this is a contemporary David Livingstone but nonetheless he was exploring Africa and we hiked in the Table Mountain National Park on a fat juicy perfect day. [caption id="attachment_2477" align="aligncenter" width="300"] A peach of a day in paradise[/caption] We were fortunate enough to see two...

Into the Big Blue

I promised not to post any more about Great White Sharks, but I didn't say anything about Mako Sharks. Earlier this week I was privileged to do another ocean trip with my friends Chris & Monique Fallows, and it turned-out to be an absolutely incredible experience. It's impossible to decide what was the highlight of the trip. How does one choose between seeing albatrosses, Shearwaters, Storm Petrels, Common Dolphins or diving with Bottlenose Dolphins,  False Killer Whales, Mako Shark or Blue Shark? Since I didn't have my camera with me, Chris kindly provided...

We finally came down off the mountains and I had made a lunch reservation at The Restaurant at the End of The Continent The views were exceptional, in fact they were even better than usual for this venue After lunch we continued along the coast. The weather was so good that even the Ostriches were out for a walk at the sea As we continued we saw many handsome Hartlaub's Gulls. Although the distribution for this Gull extends all the way up into NAmibia, half of the total population is...

Driver, Guide, Botanist, Mechanic, Marriage Counselor, Doctor, Cobbler

Everyone has been waiting with bated breath for the post about my last day walking with Olympia's last group. The truth is that (a) it was such an incredibly beautiful walk that I will require at least two postingcialis buys to do it justice and (b) I have been very busy adventuring since then, so as usual there are many exciting blogs about baby whales, flowers, snakes, dogs, wine and other adventures waiting to be posted! Well our last day on the 'Mountains In The Sea Trail' was glorious. Right...

Mountains in the mist

After many idle promises we finally feature a contribution from a guest writer! Thanks to Rachel Aspden for the latest article. Last week we spent an afternoon walking in the Cape Point national park with Brooke from New York and Georg and Maribuy cialisa from Vienna. Winding along the False Bay side of the peninsula, the trail led us up high above the ocean and down steep rocky outcrops, from bright summer sunshine into fierce autumn winds. Flowers were easy to spot. The cliffsides were covered in bright yell0w-green sunshine cone...

The Far Side of Cape Point Nature Reserve

When Susannah and Jo from Farside Africa in Edinburgh came to visit we decided to walk at the southern tip of the Table Mountain National Park - in the Cape Point Nature Reserve. Of cocanadian viagraurse we avoided the mainstream attractions and instead went to the Farside of the park, where we had a wonderful walk. We did not see a single person on our walk even though we were in one of the most popular National Parks in the country! We did however bump into a small herd of Bontebok...

Cape Point – on the rocks please

I received a message from Anders Holmberg in which I was politely chastised for not featuring his wife Annica sufficiently in the previous blog postings! So she features quite prominently in todays blog posting. Once again the weather was unpredicSeduction For Guys In Relationships.table but we did have the opportunity to have a rest on these enormous rocks. Anders - please note Annica sitting on the far left! The tide was very high and this made our progress along the rocky shore even more exciting than normal. (Yes Anders that is Annica...
