Enjoy a fabulous new week.

The best way to describe the Cape Glass Eye is to say the bird is highly alert and active.  But sometimes with patience in hand one’s luck holds.

Shoppers donated stacks of money and the music was excellent.

Being the festive season I did not bother to enquire about the price per flower.

Midweek again, enjoy the day.

The final hike ended with a well earned picnic under the trees next to the reservoir.  There was food in abundance and the wine and champaign did not stand back.

The kids had a ball climbing the trees and some even swam.

Enjoy a super day.

The Crags trail itself can be described as being a moderate to somewhat difficult especially the stretch covering the Crags itself.  Here it called for nifty foot work to keep one’s balance and eventually I put my camera into my back pack as the swinging camera dangling from my neck hampered my balancing act.

We had our final hike of the year Thursday past.  The chosen trail was the Crags which is not a long trail as we also had a planned picnic to end the years activities in style.  The hike took us just on an hour in weather conditions planned for the outdoors.  While waiting for all participants to arrive at the rendezvous point we were entertained by the sharp whistles of the Southern Boubou, a very alert bird hiding in the trees and bushes.  Not a very successful photo but for sentimental reasons I kept the focus lacking pic of the couple.

As is custom children are more than welcome on this the final hike and we had quite few.  When all the hikers were assembled we took to the Crags trail which starts with a gentle slope up the mountain.

Not in abundance, but the flowers were there to sooth the eye.
