Saturday Spot: In Search of Spring at Silvermine…

September 11th, 2012 · 17 Comments

The sun came out and so did we!!! We went in search of Spring… The thing about Cape Town is that you can escape really quickly from the hum drum of city life… we have a mountain after all. We headed for Silvermine on a glorious day…
