"Audentes fortuna iuvat", was indeed the case on Saturday morning because although there was a little rain falling as we drove up Kloofnek road, it let up as we entered the parking area and soon the bold were favoured as the clouds lifted and revealed the majestic view along the Atlantic seaboard with clear blue skies to seaward. It was a perfect spring morning as we ran through the fynbos glistening with crystal like drops and encouraged by the lusty singing of the birds as they dried out in the rising sun.
Mandla and the main group soon forged ahead and from their report had a good run to Slangolie ravine and back. On the return leg they trotted past the recovery group in fine style and later we found them basking in the sunshine in the parking area as they waited to ensure our safe return. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable and dry run.
Special thanks to Mandla Moyo for turning out to lead the main group
