Lately our family has taken to walking, hiking and exploring the natural surroundings of Cape town, as we all know, Cape town is known for its aesthetic beauty, the Mountain, the Oceans, and of course the Forest, in this case, Newlands Forest.
Once or twice a week we take the opportunity to immerse ourselves in the freshness of Newlands Forest, and each time, its a treat and a half, which leaves you hungry for more.
This morning we decided to have our morning coffee as close to the mountain as possible, as far away from the city as we could get, and as up close and personal to the woods.
This, we had done once before and decided to make a tradition of it.
As we climbed higher and higher and got closer and closer to the mountain, we delved deeper and deeper into the forest where we eventually found the ‘perfect spot ‘ to sit down and have our morning brew.
There is something about reaching higher ground and distancing oneself from the hustle and bustle of City life, that just goes beyond words.
On seeing the view that spread out before our eyes, these words came to mind. Magnificent, Divine, and Spectacular!
The beauty of this city knows no bounds, from that vantage point of view, you can’t help but feel almost transported to another realm.
What a breathtaking experience! one we plan to repeat as often as its humanly possible for
there is endless beauty in our surroundings, and no end to how far one can explore.
Any given chance one gets to discover this beauty, should be grabbed with both hands.
We certainly did:)
