Eleven happy walkers hiked along the beautiful Palmiet River in the Kogelberg Reserve this morning. This has to be one of the most picturesque areas in the southern Cape. The river was flowing strongly and there was much evidence of recent flooding, with all the fords on the jeep track washed away. We were lucky with the weather, managing to walk 10.5 km with partial cloud cover and a cool breeze, but as we arrived back at our cars the rain started!
Audrey was the only one courageous enough to swim, and said the water was warm. The rest of us just enjoyed our tea on one of the small beaches.
