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...

Finns in the mist

The weather today was not as fine as yesterday, but forunately it was not as hot as I have experienced it here before.   We were very fortunate to still have most of the magnificent views of this walk because the mist lifted when we approached Hout Bay. Kili loved the walk but was misbehaved and so he & I had an argument. As usual I set-up a safety rope at the ladder and everyone used it and appreciated having it there. Toward the end of the walk the mist settled-in...

Table Mountain Ice

The Laveroni clan has toured with me before in Cape Town. Last time they were here, the weather prevented them from going to Robben Island and from ascending Table Mountain. This time the weather was PERFECT - one of those incomparable Cape Town winter champagne days! So while Jerry & Ty went to Robben Island I took Sherry, Shelly, Maddie & Gracie for a walk on the mountain. Here we all are at Maclear's Beacon.   It was a magnificent day and although the temperature was ideal, we could see from the...

Of dogs, dolphins, docks, dazzling beauty and dyes

If you've been following the eternal sunshine of my random mind, you will recall a character who featured in one of my recent posts. His name is Ovid Jacota and he enjoys walking and he loves animals - especially dogs. I think that he trusts them viagra salebetter than he trusts humans - which is wise. Anyway he went walking with Kili & Meru, and we tagged along. We were extra privileged to see this enormous school of Dolphins swimming in the ocean below. They weren't very close nor very...

The Lost City of Cape Town

On a recent Table Mountain walk we looked down to where we expected to see the city but it was immersed in fog, with only the notorious towers visible. It was indeed the lost city of Cape Town. Whereas the mythical lost city of Atlantis was supposcialis onlineedly a marvel of architectural triumph, what architecture was visible of the lost city of Cape Town could hardly be described as "marvelous" nor as an architectural triumph. None the less being above the fog provided a unique and special view. When we...

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...

Hanging out with the Spiderheads

We were walking in a favourite part of Table Mountain National Park, when Shoshi took a leap of faith and decided to literally "hang-out". I can't say I blamed her. The view was superb and its always great to have some space under one. The day was made all the more special by these hairy Spiderheads (Serruria hirsuta). Belive it or not these beautiful flowers are members of the Protea family. They are extremely rare and this is the only known population of the species in the world. There are approximately 1500...

Special places with special people

There is something extra special about walking with close friends and family. In perfect weather I walked in the Table Mountain National Park with such people, who have managed to to tick both boxes by being in my life for so long - these are closbuy cheap cialise friends who have become family.
