3 January I joined the first hike (12 km) of the Strandveld Hiking club. The hike followed a coastal stretch between Die Kelders and Gansbaai in the Western Cape, South Africa. It was a surprise hike that lead us through some public and private caves. This first post this morning consists of blue tinted B&W pictures (portraits) of the hikers. This second one of some images of the scenery and the third one (tomorrow) with underground cave scenery.
