The other day Melanie said she had walked along the Fish Hoek ridge to the beacon and back. I had never heard of it. She explained where it was and on Saturday Julian and I tried it out.
Mike dropped us off at the traditional start of Elsie’s Peak. You set off on the path to Elsie’s. The view is already fantastic…
And up again after them, you will arrive at the Beacon…
At this point, you can turn back and retrace your steps. Julian and I had been dropped by Mike so we planned on continuing. If you do, you actually start on the trail back for a very short distance and look for a path going right. Taking that you curve around the beacon hill and start downwards towards Noordhoek. You literally from there are walking along the entire ridge that runs from Elsie’s Peak to the reservoir above Harrington Road. The sun made photos a bit tricky…
From the reservoir, it’s an easy walk down the road, then down Harrington and we were just about home.
Distance about 6.5km. It took us 2 hours. A lovely walk! I’ll definitely do it again. No snakes were spotted!
I love this Bible verse. Psalm 102:18
“Let this be written for a future generation, that a people not yet created may praise the Lord.”
I don’t know the future of technology. Perhaps these words won’t be able to be viewed in 100 years time. But perhaps they will. Let me write for a future generation that a people not yet created may praise the Lord.
There’s a thought!
These are the days!
Keep the smile going.
God bless you!
In His Grip,
