Zandvlei Wetlands

Date: 13 June 2010

Location: Zandvlei wetlands, in Muizenberg

Walkers: Helen, Claudia and Richard with Roxy and Daisy

I happily joined Claudia and Richard on one of their daily dog-walks. They are lucky to live close to Zandvlei in Muizenberg. This nature reserve comprises the river estuary, wetlands and surround land. It is a popular place for walking dogs. Roxy and Daisy certainly knew their way there!

We walked down to the pedestrian bridge and crossed over to the far side.

From here one gets a good view of the peaks above Muizenberg.

It feels as if one is about halfway between the Simonstown mountains towards the south and Devil's Peak to the north.

The dogs had a wonderful time charging around, sniffing interesting smells, running and swimming after tennis balls..

... while we strolled around, chatted and admired the dramatic skies.

Until the heavens opened and we had to run home as fast as possible. We still got pretty drenched!
