Hiking and story


Extract: The Whale Trail is named after the over 100 Southern Rights that return each year to mate and calve in the Indian Ocean waters alongside the De Hoop Nature Reserve. The reserve is some 4 hours outside of Cape Town, and the 5 day slack-pack hike covers 55kms over 5 days. Mainly coastal, the highest point is 611m. Along the way are clear tidal pools with abundant marine life, unique flora, birdlife, Bottle Nose dolphins frolicking in the waves, and of course the whales.
Here are some reflections on the connections between the act of hiking and stories - with thoughts on movement, being in the flow zone, mindfulness, obstacles, halo people and noose people……….
Mountain is quiet,
Water is flowing,
Moon is bright,
Flower is blooming.
At midnight a good smell fills the world –
A good time to drink tea (Kyong Bong)
