The classic view of Table Mountain is from the north, across Table Bay, looking south, so that the flat table part is front and centre.
Pictured here, from my mom's garden is the cooler, eastern flank of the mountain, dominated by Fern Buttress, a sheer, cliffy face of rock and bracken and moss.
As with any mountain, every day and almost every hour brings a new dimension and colour to the rocks, while unique clouds form above and beneath this peninsula-dominating mass of sandstone.
It's too easy to sit in the garden and stare, and forget to move. Especially with a nice, cool drink.
But there is countryside to conquer...
Well, maybe later.
We did take out the map today. Then we had another sip of cold beer.
