We were completely alone in this valley of peculiar rocky sculptures ~ from the turn-off from the Constantia Nek path, up up up through a jungle of cliffside trees and bushes, with vistas of oceans and masts of distant peaks in the odd clearing. Our hearts beat strong and fierce and our eyes kept searching for something camelly. The back of Table Mountain made an appearance here and there. But before you even reach that camel, there’s a whole world of weird caves and canyons and trails leading off in other directions. We’ll have to return for those. There’s only so much coffee in one flask.
Huge shout out to the best dog in the world! Luna turns 2 today! She has had a great day hanging with the pack, chasing sticks and sea weed, running around enjoying every step!
"Everyone should have a camel"
My thinking place. My happy place. My sad place. My go to place when things are tough. My safe place. Day or night. Summer or winter. The place that grounds me and helps me make sense of the world. 🐪
When I was Mainland based for 15 years (not entirely sure what madness made me do that!) each time I came home (which was often!) this is the first place I always walked.
Now I'm back home Porth Hellick still gets many visits, almost daily, and if I don't make it for a few days I start to get twitchy...
Where's your camel?
#jumpintoanewage wieder ein Geburtstag in Berlin 😍 und damit #happybirthdaytome ❤️. Ich freu mich schon total auf meine Jungs heute Abend und jetzt erstmal auf einen Vormittag mit lauter lieben Mädels in der City 😀. Für mein neues Lebensjahr nehm ich mir mehr Gelassenheit vor und ansonsten soll bitte alles so bleiben wie es ist, so ist’s am schönsten 🙏🏼
It’s our second Sunday hike for the year and it was up and up. Once we got higher, the people got less, which I loved. I’m sooo grateful for the time in nature and the incredible flowers and rock formations. But especially the quality conversations with my peeps. To me when we walk together... the words seem to fall out, for me to pick up and gather and hold close. The highlight of my week. #happyhappyheart#365tinycaptures2019#365tinycaptures#camelrock 🐫🐫🐫 #tablemountain#capetown#polaroid
This morning I was sitting at Camel Rock waiting for the sun to rise at 2am. A slight miscalculation on get up time! 🤪 I still can’t work out how I stuffed it up and I didn’t want to go back to the caravan park and wake everyone up again! I’d already done a big skid on the wet grass as I left. Sorry campers! #camelrock#visitnsw#seascape#moodygrams#sunrisers
