Dave and Meredith's Excellent Adventure

I enjoy hearing about hiking trips, way more than having to do one. Well, if a golf cart is involved, I'd be all for it.

Got an email from Meredith of "Day 1" of their hiking trip with four moe to go.  So here's the report.

Meredith writes:

Dave and I just wrapped up our first day of hiking on our 4 day hiking trip with friends. We're in the Green Mountain in the Overberg region of the Western Cape. According to our guide the region has more than 1,500 plant species, which is greater biodiversity than all of the UK. Luckily we had a decent amount of cloud cover which made the ascent part of the 18km we hiked today manageable. We are also in. The winelands and farm lands so we've enjoyed wine tastings and locally produced foods.

Ok, so I've googled Overberg region and here's where they are. This is the tip of Africa:

View over the Elgin valley. Somewhere out there is Hermanus, where we {Michelle, Tom and Mary]went in October:
