On Saturday the 10th of November 2018 we did a circular walk from Fisanthoek Hut and back.

In the group:

Members: Gonny Houtsma (Meet Leader), Fred van Berkel (photos), Evie Bowen, Sandy and Clive Louw, Mike von der Heyde, Romy Foster, and Ann Mc Gregor (Cape Town section).

Guests: Hillary Appelgryn, Patrys van der Walt, and Estelle Leonard.

Stats: Distance about 9 km, an easy grade 2M walk, mostly on jeep tracks and sections of the Outeniqua Hiking Trail.

Report: Everybody gathered at the beginning of the path to the Fisanthoek Hut: Outeniqua Trail. From there we started on the track towards Garden of Eden.

When we reached the Petrus-se-Brand mountain bike trail, we followed that in reverse until we hit the road. Halfway we met three cyclists, luckily one of them was the husband of one of our group, so they knew we were on the route. We stopped for a snack, at the intersection of Petrus-se-Brand and the jeep track back to the hut.

This was an ideal time to browse through the flower books to ID some of the interesting flowers seen earlier.

A songololo, a lunch guest, was most intrigued with a piece of carrot!

After that we followed the road back to the hut.

It was a nice walk, with lots of time for talk and laughter.

Coffee at the Coral Breeze Café at the Sasol garage afterwards.
Thanks everybody who joined me!
