Hiked up Klapmutskop on an overcast Sunday morning. The idea was to go wine tasting if it was raining too hard but the slight drizzle at the start passed over quickly and apart from a very short downpour of light hail, no rain on the rest of the walk. The 360 degree views from the top are quite beautiful with a multi-coloured patchwork of farmlands below. The cry of a fish eagle passing by while we had our tea was a bonus. The three and half hour walk brought us down in time for lunch which after finding most of the wine farm restaurants fully booked, we eventually found at the Blaauklippen Food Market (every Sunday for future reference). This was a good choice but we only just managed to scrape in a wine tasting at Neethlingshof at about 3.45, before the farms all closed up for the afternoon.
