Our walk in the Kogelberg this morning via Dot’s Dash was pure pleasure. The weather was perfect and, as anticipated, the endemic, scarlet, Erica pillansii was in full bloom. Not since the devastating fire of 2011 has the spectacle been better! Not only was this Erica showing well, but the Erica perspicua was also looking very good.
We were privileged to have some out of town visitors with us and they really enjoyed the spectacle. It ended up being a four hour hike as we stopped many times to take photographs and also to have a well-earned tea break at Spooknek
