Some people sleep late on their birthday, me on the other hand... I was up at 05h00 to meet a friend at Constantia Nek. Last year Ake had joined me for 3 hours of mountain trail running... This year I didn't have that sort of time as the day was full, in fact the weekend was full and it was only Thursday!
While I had asked a couple of guys if they had wanted to join me only Katya found the time. (It could have been the early morning or the fact that it was a week day, I don't know!)
It was such a perfect morning we could have met at 05h00, the mountain was ready for us... We weren't the only ones up there as we caught someone else venturing out before the rest of the Mother City woke!
|the first bit of sun!|
The top was deserted and full of morning magic, will have to do this again...
I would have love to have spent 3-4 hours exploring every single track again, but my day was not ending there I had places to go and people to see...
|Katya took the picture...|
By 09h30 I was home after fulling the car with petrol and a case of beer! That is not all the bags were packed and I was infront of the PC...
With the entry confirmed we packed the bags and the dogs and headed out to the wine country for a few days...
|Hurry up with the key|
|What more could a man want?|
|Running on the mountain|
|Let's go wine tasting!|
|OK I took this as we were leaving in the morning|
It was after 13h00 when we got home (maybe we shouldn't have stopped at another wine farm!) and with guests arriving from 18h30 there was no time to sit around... While Dawn hit the shops for a few things I headed for the kitchen!
Remember I had bought beer before leaving? Well other than needing a couple of beers to drink I also make a beer bread...
|It didn't last long|
