A-hiking we will go!

Hellooooo, loyal reader!

I’m sure you giggled at our short-lived ‘healthy jogger’ lifestyle from last year. We’d jog around the block in the evenings some days, then glug a sugary drink to reward ourselves.

Things have changes drastically since moving to Cape Town.

With the beach right there, you can’t help but walk a little bit more each time. And oh, the wonderful walks we’ve had!

I’ve posted a few pics below… our most recent hike was up Lion’s Head this past Saturday – it’s about 5km in total, so we’re most pleased with ourselves! Have a looksie:

***UPDATE***

Who would have thought – we made it up AND down Table Mountain this past weekend by climbing Platteklip Gorge! NOT for the faint of heart but VERY proud of ourselves:

Not really a hike, but we walked quite far to see the penguins at Boulders Beach a few weeks ago.

Lol at this shot. Dad says it looks like I'm crushing a cable car with my foot. That's the highest I could lift my leg!
