    I have taken to walking along the beach for an hour in the early mornings, as lately I have been generally feeling down and thought it would help. It has been marvellous for me I recommend an early morning walk to anyone!.I come home feeling very fresh and exhilerated and ready for my day :). This morning, the tide was out and I was lucky enough be able to walk on to the rocky island opposite the Blue Peter. I came up on this seal sunning himself. I was sad because I had inadvertently "chased" him away, it is not usual to see them on our beaches , and it was a real delight to come up on him like that. It was around seven in the morning and the beach was just about deserted so I think he was very surprised to see me. The sun was shining but there was a fresh wind blowing, not strong enough to be unpleasant but it was a wee bit cool! also here are some photos of the mountain and surrounds. I walked from Bloubergstrand's "Ons Huisie" cafe/ restaurant, I walked about 2km of beach and back, so 4 km's in all. I also made a short video of the seals escape. I put this up under the "wildlife" thread but thought I would share it here too!

    The path made by the low tide to the rock island, this is where I came upon the seal.
