A quick family hike up from Silvermine to the Elephant’s Eye cave overlooking the Constantia valley and Cape Flats this morning. It was 7.5km of rocky paths and scrambles, together with almost 400m in ascent: hard work, but we enjoyed ourselves and the views were superb.
Sadly, we appear to have broken Colin, who needed to be carried the last few hundred metres, having lain down and refused to get back up again. Or was unable to. Whichever.
Colin is still asleep, three hours after we got back.
I’ll try and do a longer post on this sometime this week. Photos here.
