The walkway between Muizenberg and St James on a cold and misty morning.
On Saturday I did a very interesting run – there and back again through the Huguenot service tunnel. Of a 20km run, just less than half was in the pitch black tunnel.
We ran on tar, dirt roads, single-track, drainage canals, and of course through the tunnel.
It was a most excellent adventure!

Here are two pictures of St James beach. The first when the air was completely still, and the second just before the rain.

The Grape run will be on October 18.. It is an amazing but tough 21km trail run, and a rare opportunity to run through the Constantia Vineyards (there is also a milder 14k and 5k race). I have completed the past 2 runs, but I will miss this year because I will be on holiday in Greece, which I think is a pretty good excuse!

If you are a runner it is an amazing run to do. Groot Constantia (the oldest wine farm in South Africa) even have wine at the water tables!
