Break downs

Last weekend we had Norm (from the Fish River Canyon) stay with us before he left for Canada. It was so good to catch up on all his news since the hike and so long until next year.

We planned an easy hike from Rhodes Memorial to Kirstenbosch Gardens, ending in a picnic in the gardens. For this hike you need to take 2 cars (unless you really motivated to hike back). We had taken my boss's car for the weekend, for a test drive after it had been repaired. Just before we arrived at Kirstenbosch, steam started to pour out of the bonnet. Luckily we were close to a garage and managed to get someone to tow the car in.We now had to re-think our hiking plans. Being Cape Town, there is never a shortage of great places to hike and so we settled on good old faithful - Lion's Head.

It was a wonderful walk and we ended by having our picnic on Signal Hill.

We stopped at Bonjour Patisserie (in De Lorentz St, Tamboerskloof) on our way to Lion's Head and bought the best croissants I have ever tasted and a few other heavenly tarts! If you are ever in Tamboerskloof this is a must stop.

I could not help taking this picture of the new stadium. While there might be a lot of controversy surrounding the stadium, it is still very impressive.

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
C.S. Lewis
