To the quiet hills

My life has been inspired by mountains. I was born in Camps Bay – that picture postcard view everyone recognises. The Atlantic Ocean stretched away with the Cape to Rio yachts sailing to South America, or the SA Agulhas heading South to Antarctica. As a child our family home was at the bottom of Lion’s Head, beneath the Atlantic end of Table Mountain with the cable station. The chain of mountains stretches away along the Twelve Apostles to a hidden Hout Bay.
