Cape Point gate to Buffelsfontein

Leader: Kate McCallum 31 October 2017 Cape Point gate to Buffelsfontein

Sixteen members met just beyond the Cape Point gate on a day that promised to get hotter. It did, 32◦C, but not before a hearty north-west wind had got up to take the edge off the heat for a bit.

The path provided spectacular views, and undulated enough to provide 325 m of ascent. There was a bit of whinging about false advertising and not seeing the promised whales, but after tea one or two whales were spotted, and honour was satisfied. Honour was doubly satisfied as we finished before the U3A group on much the same route.

A single Disa graminifolia was seen cheerfully flowering very early. Thanks to Richard Ferguson and Graham Kilbey for Tail-End Charlie duty.
