Christmas at Kirstenbosch

Date: 25 December 2009

Location: Kirstenbosch

Walkers: Dorothy, Helen & Michele

For my previous walk in Kirstenbosch see here.

A gang of us met up in the botanical garden for a picnic lunch on Christmas day. It was a lovely sunny day and we had a delicious feast. We didn't manage much of a walk, but a couple of us did stroll around the upper reaches of the garden between courses.

The beds were looking wonderfully lush and green for this time of year.

We didn't see much wildlife although we did watch a large wasp carry off an even-larger spider. Wow, that was rather amazing to see.

Most of the day was spent chatting, laughing, eating and relaxing together on the lawns. It was a lovely day. Thanks everyone for a great Christmas!
