In a traffic jam on Lion’s Head…

Last night, myself and a bunch of beautiful friend-people decided to take a hike up Lion’s Head…

My beautiful friend-people, Table Mountain (background) & I.

Now if you’ve ever been up Lion’s Head you’ll know that the best time to take the trip would be on a night of the full moon.

That way you watch the awesome Cape Town sunset as you ascend. And when you get to the top, you can stare in awe at the full moon shining off the water in the bay.

Last night, this was hardly the case. Although we did see the sunset and did catch a glimpse of the full moon (through the mist now and again) , we were pretty much in the clouds most of the way back… and in the rain!

Thanks to Danika for the pretty pics (and for clearing up the spelling of ‘queue’!) @ Nicole: Much love… it was great having you there Ms Intuition!

Did I mention the queue on our way up AND down!?

The rest of the hikers coming down while we make our way up... Notice the queue?!

It took us between 19:30 and 11:30 to climb up and down. Does anyone know what the average time is? Something tells me it shouldn’t have taken more than 1h3o min.

It was an awesome experience nonetheless and I’d do it again any day!

Due to the fear of boredom we resorted to singing and dancing in the rain during our stroll down the mountain! Haha. Amazing how some people always make the most of a seemingly unpleasant situation.

This quote by Tim Robbins pretty much sums up what I gathered from the experience for myself…

“Our lives are not as limited as we think they are; the world is a wonderfully weird place; consensual reality is significantly flawed; no institution can be trusted, but love does work; all things are possible; and we all could be happy and fulfilled if we only had the guts to be truly free and the wisdom to shrink our egos and quit taking ourselves so damn seriously.”

And here's to the misty moonlight shadows ("moooon shaadow, moon shadow").
