Our walk to Mooiwater, which John has been promising for the last few years, eventually materialised this morning. It was worth waiting for, as eighteen Hurriers discovered on arrival. We were greeted by Nicky with tea and coffee, after which we set out up a stream to the source of the farm’s domestic water. The weather was perfect and we were treated to a view of four Klipspringers on the mountainside above us.
On our return we gathered next to the dam and enjoyed our picnic lunch, before returning to Hermanus. The promised swim in the dam did not occur as it was a bit chilly, but the surroundings were beautiful!
