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 m m Devil's Peak 2 links , especially as it is so prominent from the tTs back garden.

We started from the entrance to mNewlands 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 mUniversity of Cape Town campus. Then through the campus to our late lunch destination, the mNewlands branch of the mMykonos Greek restaurant
