Eleven Hurriers turned out this morning to walk Dot’s Dash. The weather was cool, with quite a cold wind blowing, and it was partially overcast, so good walking conditions. Our climb on the initial section reminded us of our advancing years, with many stops to mend bellows. Once up on Spooknek, however, we were relieved at the prospect of some downhill hiking. This we did through the magnificent fields of Erica pillansii, which is once again back to its pre-fire splendour, along with good showings of Erica perspicua, whilst the entire walk was characterised by wonderful, colourful fynbos.
