The weather seems to be cooling off (just a little!) and I am starting to feel more energetic than I have in weeks. Brenda and I took a walk up Lion's Head, with lots of chatting along the way. Good test of fitness that... can you walk uphill and carry on a conversation? Huff puff.
The vegetation had that late summer look: scruffy and dry.
Without flowers to look at I turned my attention to rocks. I do love the colours and textures of the weathering, and the lichens on the surface.
Brenda is not keen on the ladders either so we went round the front. For some reason today it felt steeper than usual. I really don't have a head for heights; some days I manage this section fine and other days it feels like I'm teetering on the edge and could fall any minute. Today was one of those days, but luckily no missteps or slips. It is a long way down.
Good walk. Exercise and these views make me happy every time!
