March 14, 2013 (Cape Town, RSA) A little more about the early morning walk. Dr. Pons is an avid outdoorsman with an eclectic knowledge of the environment around us: flora, fauna, history and the geography of the Cape. Morning walks with him are a great learning experience for us. He took us through the area around his father-in-laws house that has many vineyards on the hillsides - all in full harvest. We sampled a few very sweet grapes on our trek. It included a spectacular sunrise view of a historic Dutch farm laid out with a long promenade entrance with a boulevard of oaks lining the driveway opening to this classic Dutch white washed farmhouse. I took a GoPro camera attached to a chest harness that I wore, and made my first time-lapse movie of the walk - a shot every half second. For the most part it turned out quite well, with some sunny shots quite bleached out. I'll edit it down and hopefully get some of it posted here...I only hope I got the footage of BKF being attacked by the nasty Cape Town Wine Spider!
