A walk in Tokai

Today’s walk took us to the Tokai conservation area again. Part of the forest has been removed so that the fynbos can regrow but alien vegetation is creeping back – lots of work still to be done. We like walking along the inside paths where you can better see the plants and Vida loves running on the sand. Today we even saw cranes but they were too far away for good photos.

Walking towards the pine forest

Walking towards the pine forest. Several bridges over the stream that zig-zags the area but there’s no water at the moment.

Stupid sign, dogs don't read and anyway it was all scrunched up on the ground

As can be seen, this is not a natural forest

A lot of work is needed to remove the alien invasive plants but it's still pretty

Anything surrounded by these beautiful mountains is lovely and we’re so lucky to have open spaces like this minutes from busy suburbs.

About Francoise Armour

I run a small touring company (Tours du Cap) at the bottom of Africa, to show visitors the beauty and vibrant culture of the country I have lived in since my parents brought me here from France as a child. I enjoy taking photos and wish I had learnt to do it properly. I enjoy writing but don't do enough of it. I enjoy walking in the mountains that surround me and I marvel over the views and the flowers and the amazing rock formations. I have a small, cute, clever, black dog of indeterminable breed, named Vida, who reminds me regularly that walking and getting out is not only for when tourists want it.

A note to all accidental visitors:

I am not a photographer and do not claim to have any particular skills whatsoever in that department. I have enormous respect for those who can see the potential in a scene and can create a great photo. Good photography is an art, in my opinion.

I am just a happy snapper, I have no special lenses or accessories, my camera is very simple and it's usually best to leave the setting on auto.
