This morning we were due to walk Dot’s Dash, in the hope of seeing some of the wonderful ericas that characterise that area in Autumn. What a disappointment we had on arrival at Fairy Glen to find that the Reserve was closed, as there was some controlled burning taking place. We had driven a long way and wondered what to do.
Then someone suggested the Kleinmond coastal path, so we set off from the Caravan park at the mouth of the Palmiet River and followed the boardwalk from there to Kleinmond harbour. Then we joined the local cliff path and continued to the Kleinmond Lagoon, before retracing our steps. It was a far cry from Dot’s Dash, but nevertheless, a very enjoyable walk along a well maintained path with excellent sea views and in wonderful weather.
The walk was 8.8 km and ten of us were present.
