Eleven walkers set out this morning from Vogelgat Reserve. We walked up via Sea Saddle to Mossel Nook Hut where we stopped for tea. On the way we were surprised to see the new swimming pool erected on the path below the hut. It will be a welcome stop for hikers on a hot day, but today the weather was far too cool to contemplate stripping off!
Walking conditions were ideal and we completed 10.2 km back to Fernkloof, on the route indicated on the above map. The fynbos has recovered well from recent fires and we were delighted to find a small orchid along the way.
