Me, Rachel Swailes. My blog about stuff I get up to in and around the Western Cape, Cape Town, George, Wilderness, Hermanus and other cool places :)

Sunday was a beautiful day so we decided to get up Table Mountain again. This time via Skeleton Gorge through Kirstenbosch Gardens.

The climb is basically uphill with no level bits along the way. But as you get out of the forest you get this awesome view stretching out behind you.

Once at the top we took the option of walking to the reservoirs. You wouldn’t guess that the picture below was taken at the top of the mountain. It looks like it should lead to a beach somewhere.

And the boys, Sean and Richard. Again, hard to believe this is on top of the mountain.

Being the girl, I am permitted the random photo of the cute lizard. Although, being a girl, it sould really have been a random photo of a flower or something :p

And on our way back down before our legs turned to jelly.


At least it felt like we accomplished something this weekend. Along with a well deserved nap.
