Hike Up Lions Head

It's almost Soccer 2010 time people! The vibe is infectious! Another wonderful advantage of living in Cape Town is the surrounding hills and mountains. One of our favourite hiking spots is Lions Head. You walk around the mountain so as you get higher the view changes and gets more spectacular around each bend. You can see all across Cape Town, over Camps Bay and Greenpoint, across to the majestic Table Mountain. In this photo below you can see how it got its name...

Recently we went for a hike during full moon-- up Lions Head as the sun sets then down by the light of the moon. It was a bit nerve wracking as the clouds rolled in and visibility decreased. Poor Lauren had injured her foot so the climb was painful and the climb down even more so. Nick carried her for a lot of the way (Mountain Man) but we all a fright when he tripped over a rock on the way down with her on his back! We wanted to send her back to the UK with a fond memory but alas, we failed. Sorry Lauren! :( But Ros got some great shots of our little adventure.. :) (NB. Click on images to see them larger)

This shot was before the pain...

How blessed am I to live in this city!!

Gratitude: Friends

Today I am so grateful for my amazing friends and family. I don't know what I would do without my incredible support base :) So here's a post with some niiice images for you all, with my deepest thanks and lots of love.

'A friend is one to whom one may pour out all the contents of one’s heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that the gentlest of hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping, and with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.'
