Over the Hill

There were no less than 20 walkers (including 4 visitors) who accompanied Mick on his new route – ‘over the hill’ – which took us from the Visitor’s Centre, along the contour path and over the mountain to Hemel-en-Aarde, ending up at the Forest Adventure Centre.  He kept us amused with his commentary on all we saw and ultimately gave us a great and informative talk on the work done by the OTI (Overstrand Training Institute) which gives hope and direction to many young people who might otherwise have given up.

Not only that, but we were given a wonderful tea with sandwiches and scones at the about to be opened restaurant.  We had walked 6.5 kms and seen a mixture of fynbos and alien forest, along with a good bird or two, including a Peregrine Falcon and a Black Sparrow-Hawk.
