One of the things Michael and I always try and do on the weekends is hike somewhere and this time we decided to the Diagonal cave hike. We have done this one before but its right by us and has such pretty views we decided to do it again.
This weekend the weather wasn’t the greatest on Saturday but Sunday was crisp and sunny with only a few clouds lingering by table mountain in the morning. We decided to start our hike at our apartment which is just one road away from the entrance to Table Mountain on the Twelve Apostles side in Camps Bay. We walked the jeep tracks up to the top pipe track route and headed up to one of our favorite chill spot, the Diagonal cave. The cave is kind of half way between the the start of the path and the top of the mountain but we were in a relaxed mood and didn’t want to walk all the way to the top.
We took some photos and meditated for a bit soaking up the sun and nature while sitting on a huge rock in front of the cave. We walked 9km in total which wasn’t too bad for a Sunday stroll especially because a lot of it was uphill so I definitely didnt feel bad having a glass of wine and a burger for dinner!
