We spent a few days in Sea Point and then went to Rondebosch for the weekend, allowing us to enjoy some really great walks. The first was a hike in and around Kirstenbosch Gardens, including the base of Skeleton Gorge, the Contour path and part of Nursery Gorge. What a beautiful part of the world this is, with wonderful trees, fynbos and birds everywhere!
Being in Sea Point gave us the opportunity to walk along the Atlantic seaboard and we must have done around 20 km along the promenade at various times. We spent a morning walking above Muizenberg with Tanja and Gillian and they put us through our paces with some steep climbing and descents. We were completely blown away by the wonderful Mimetes that grows on Muizenberg Mountain – not shrubs, but big trees and all covered in beautiful blooms!
