I took this photo from Muizenberg Peak, just above Lakeside. I see this mountain from my bedroom window, but it as a magic peak for a trail-run destination. My house is in the little suburb on the bottom left, just below the grass in front of the lake. The lake is actually an estuary that is fed from many of the rivers the flow off the mountain. It empties into the sea on the right, at Muizenberg beach.
Here are a few more pics from the run.
Part of the trail
I saw this written on the trail. Just something nice, and in a zen way – impermanent.

Lakeside from above. Zandvlei in the front,with the Muizenberg mountains in the distance.
From the bottom right, you can see a little of Muizenberg beach, and the exit of the vlei in to the sea.
Towards the back, you can see Marina da Gama on the right, and Zandvlei (the lake) in the middle, with the little village of Zandvlei (where I live) on the left.
The Muizenberg villiage is bottom left.
