Perfect weather on Robberg early morning. Along the hike : Greg and Janet Moore, Fred Nicky van Berkel, Sandy Louw, Cheryl and Greg Devine, Rina de Leur, Wolf Schneider, Irmela Kohlsdorf. Apparently some new members were planning to join us but didn’t let me know – so we took off without them! I suppose it is a club first to lose some MC hikers in the car park already – next time I hope they’ll enjoy the hike with us!


At the gap


The wind picked up on our return journey and got steadily stronger ahead of the cold front. Somewhere near the Fountain Hut, the lost hikers passed us from the opposite direction. I didn’t know them but Fred told them to hurry up if they still wanted to make it around Robberg!

It took about 4 hours to complete the hike, and according to Fred’s GPS the distance covered was about 8.5 km. We did take short cuts along the coast as the tide was near spring low.

A hike well worth doing!
