Cape Town: 27 December 2019.

After our two rainy xmas days inside we were all ready for some fresh air so what better than a hike on ♉ ♉ Devil's Peak 2 links , especially as it is so prominent from the tTs back garden.

We started from the entrance to ♉Newlands Park and [approximately] followed the contour path up to the King's Blockhouse. Then straight down to the Rhode's Restaurant and Tea Room and memorial on the edge of the ♉University of Cape Town campus. Then through the campus to our late lunch destination, the ♉Newlands branch of the ♉Mykonos Greek restaurant
