Hiking on Table Mountain in the

Those of us who live in Cape Town have very little faith in the weather forecast. To be fair having a mountain on such a narrow peninsula stuck at the end of Africa forecasting is not easy here. So anyway, whenever we walk on the mountain whatever the forecast has said it is always worth taking a waterproof with you. Murphy’s law clearly states that it will rain if you don’t take a rain jacket on a hike. It is also worth bearing in mind that walking in light rain is really not that bad. In fact it can be very pleasant.

Best of all though is when you see a rainbow. Here is a rainbow we saw whilst walking up Agathas Gulley a few weeks ago. No rain was forecast of course!!
