If you live in Cape Town you will just have to agree with me that this weekend has just been STUNNING! Seriously, two days of blue skies, warm air and glorious, glorious sunshine! What more could an outdoor loving family want?
Yesterday, we set off to hike to Noordhoek Peak, just above the Silvermine Dam with some dear friends...

The 'short cut' was stunning - incredible views, but we ended up ABOVE the jeep track and not on it, and I'm fairly sure we walked along Steenberg ridge instead!
|A very well kept trail|

By the time we had scaled a few more peaks, the little people in our group were getting decidedly hot and bothered....
|A somewhat fed up Aragorn!|
But look at these views, in spite of not having reached the top, they were just incredible...and the kids loved paddling in the dam when we got back to the bottom!

Sea, sun sand and delighted giggles - isn't this what weekends are all about?
|can you believe they were actually getting wet, in a cape sea,|
in the middle of winter???

A fabulous wonderful winter (?) weekend! Hope yours was good too!
