It was a spur-of-the-moment idea for us as MCSA group to see flowers this year without going all the way to Postberg with all that that entails. So off we went to Grotto Bay, between Koeberg and Yzerfontein on a perfect day for viewing flowers. Warm and windless. At 11:00 (to maximise open flower viewing), eleven of us, with several very knowledgeable members, began looping along the various paths, ooh-ing and ah-ing at the diverse and colourful range.
A tea/snack stop next to an abandoned house providing the only shade on the beach at Grotto Bay, gave us a break from viewing flowers, after which we continued with the figure of eight route back to the cars. Lunch on a cliff provided a pleasant breeze, overlooking churning seas below.
Another, shorter, loop gave opportunity to see different flowers, but the afternoon sun was rather hot by that time, so, having had out fill of all that that area could provide, we headed back to the cars and back home.
It could be that this was a first for MCSA, hiking in the Grotto Bay area?
