Today Rob, Carl and Moggs, Biddy, Debby, Lynette, Robin and Deirdre, and Renee and I made the most of some wonderful still weather and walked around 8 km from the Kogelberg Offices to Harold Porter. This area suffered a recent burn and, whilst the immediate post-burn vegetation had come and gone, the ground was well covered with rejuvenating fynbos.
The recent rains meant that there was plenty of water underfoot and all the streams were running well. Unfortunately some strong winds had brought down a number of big trees in the kloof forest, but otherwise the area was as beautiful as ever, with many interesting plants along the way.
On reaching the Harold Porter Reserve, we all stopped at the restaurant for a pleasant lunch before heading for home in fairly thick sea mist. Fortunately we had walked above the latter and had warm sunshine all the way.
