It is always good to walk in Cape Point Nature Reserve. It is one of those places that you can walk all day and except for the occasional sight of cars and tour buses on the distant road to the point, you hardly see a sole – a real get away from everyone experience. At the same time there are spectacular views over False Bay, right across to Hangklip.
Saturday was a case in point, a beautiful, but slightly windy day and our party did not come across a single hiker during our 3½ hour hike. The wind seemed to have blown all the haze away and the mountains across the Bay were particularly clear against the background of a bright blue see. This section is a particularly rewarding one, as you can get quite close to the cliff face if you want to go to some of the viewing points and you have a view of both the Atlantic coast and the False Bay coast for almost the entire hike.
Leaving at about 9.30 after shuttling cars from the starting point to Bordjiesrif, we reached our lunch stop at Kanonkop by 12.30 and then the end by 1.30. A great morning excursion. Thanks Sue & Eugene for organising.
