The road to De Hoop
De Hoop is a top Cape Nature Resrve
On 6th August Odette, her friend Dee & myself visited De Hoop for the day.
Odette having a whale of a time!
It is priceless!
The huge vlei at De Hoop, excellent for waterbirds.
Baboons feeding on the recently growing shoots
in the coastal habitats.
Bully Canary of the Cape race.
On the way to the coast.
At first you get a tantalizing glimpse!
Then a little bit more!
Magnificent coastal scenery.
South African Black Oystercatchers.
But this is why one comes here.
Southern Right Whales are seasonal visitors
along this coast.
At least seven were present in the bay.
Odette & Dee -best buddies.
A really good day out was enjoyed by all. Till the next time!
