The Cape a Trip…..part 1

This Easter we decided to go road tripping. Our eldest daughter, Isabelle, decided to ride from Cape Town to Pietermaritzburg with her school adventure team and we decided to follow her. We left a week after she did, they had a few days off before starting and visited Table Mountain and Robben Island before starting the long ride to Pmb. We left and travelled via Richmond, a small town in the Northern Cape. We spent three days in Cape Town, the first was lovely and ended with. Walk up Constantia Neck. A steep walk and quite a tough decent. Anyway, I found. Few lovely insects going up and here they are….

    Great, Simon. I’m sentimental about autumn Browns. They’re overlap with Xmas butterflies (Citrus s.tail) still on the wing in the garden.

    I look out for them now in the long kikuyu grass below the tennis courts at UCT upper campus where they’re abundant. Gives me a lift.

    Takes me right back to my collecting days at school in Grahamstown. tjeers deryck
