Thanks to Lea’s (Imar’s cousin) initiative, we were able to take advantage of one of Cape Town’s beautiful Autumn days. We headed off, all four of us crammed into the Jimny, to Silvermine Nature Reserve which is situated along Ou Kaapse Weg. There we met Lea and Jaco and soon started off on our little adventure. It is really a beautiful walk. It’s like a sensory overload. You get to enjoy the scenery, bird life, flowers and the nature whilst walking on a reasonably easy path to the lookout point for Elephants Eye. Along the way we stopped along the river and had a delicious picnic treat. Freshly baked scones, oranges and mango. Yummy! Once we reached the end of the path and were able to catch our breath we were entertained by a beautiful Verreaux’s Eagle soaring just below us with out a care in the world. A stark contrast to the Pollsmoor prisoners in their orange uniforms, which you can see in the background.
