Table Mountain Hike Devil’s Peak


Cape Town Vista

Yesterday was wonderful hiking Table Mountain for the first time since returning to Cape Town – a euphoric day! I was feeling tired from recent travels, but my friend Jenny encouraged me to join the hiking group – so glad I did!

It was perfect hiking weather and an easy-going group. We missed substantial rain on Friday and it’s raining lightly today – a welcome phenomenon for everyone!

The hike began at the Devil’s Peak trailhead. We climbed to the contour path enjoying spectacular panoramic views of Cape Town and the coast. The hike wasn’t difficult, but trails on Table Mountain are strewn with boulders and loose rocks.

Next week I head to Hermanus Bay – about a 1.5-hour drive from Cape Town. Hermanus is famous for the migrating whales that visit to have their calves in the safe, peaceful bay. July is a few months early for whale watching season, but the beautiful Bay is always active with dolphins, seals, and other sea life.

    • Yes – feeling very happy and relaxed here in Cape Town but sleepy Hermanus Bay will be a great opportunity to focus on writing – so many subject possibilities! Hope all is well in Australia.

      • Having a busy time of it driving up and down the coast for family events and helping a friend to move. Now another crisis will see Billl and I drive to Adelaide next week, 14 hours plus breaks. And I’m trying to push on with the manuscript. Ordered some research material up from Canberra, which I can access at my local libraryuntil 1st August. Hope the Adelaide trip won’t chip too much of that time away. Enjoy your writing.

  1. All best Gwen! Yes, hoping for some time to organize and rethink writing but am somewhat undisciplined. Getting banking organized here is an awful experience – very hard to get money deposited into your account if you’re a foreigner.
