Cape Point Cycle ride on Sunday
After a week of stormy weather, Midwinter 22 June was a sunny morning. We loaded the bikes and drove to Simons Town to meet a friend for breakfast at the False Bay Yacht Club. After a delicious breakfast, the sun was still shining and there was no wind so we drove for 20 minutes, along the coast to the Cape Point info centre.
We unloaded the bikes and cycled down to the sea in False Bay. We took the fisherman’s path from Boordjies pool to Venus Pool. The sea was calm with fisherman in 10 boats and 6 groups of fishermen on the rocks. We did not see any fish. There were no waves in Venus Pool.
We cycled back to Buffels Bay where there were lots of baboons. It was so peaceful with just a few people and the baboons. At the end of the road, we carried our bikes to the rocks. There in the warm winter sunshine, we enjoyed a simple picnic from my basket. In the road, there was a young dead puffadder. It had beautiful skin. Then we went to see the accommodation for hikers high up on the hill with wonderful views.
