Hike over Vlakkenberg

 

Hello! Thought I would show you where we hiked the last two weekends. Last Sunday we hiked from Groot Constantia to Vlakkenberg and the views were spectacular.

 

Overlooking Constantia…. a little to the right of this picture is Groot Constantia, the oldest wine estate in South Africa.

And we saw this Disa (Cape orchid) Disperis Capensis also known as Moederkappie or Granny Bonnet…

So cute!

On Saturday we hiked from Hout Bay to Constantia Nek. This hike was 10/10 for its beauty and diversity. We hiked from about 10 in the morning until 4 in the afternoon and it was so, so beautiful. Everything fresh and new from the rain…

 

 

 

We started here at the East Fort, Hout Bay….
