Newlands Forest – Flickr pic of the day
Jonty says, “This image is of my wife running on the upper contour of Newlands Forest.
“I grew up in Newlands and used to run this path often, so it has a lot of memories for me. We did this run from Sea Point (where I live now) through to Newlands across the mountain on Christmas morning, and it makes you really appreciate what we have in Cape Town.
“I can leave work and in 20 minutes be running on a mountain overlooking some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. I’ve travelled to many cities in my life, but few can compare with the variety of experiences, sheer draw-dropping beauty and general quality of life that Cape Town offers,” he continues.
From the nature trails to the Peninsula’s bird and sea life, there’s an abundance of attractions in Cape Town for lovers of the natural world.
Do you have images of Cape Town you’d like to share with us? We’d love you to join the Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group!
