The Hike at Silvermine

Because we landed in Cape Town later in the week, we only had one day of ministry before the weekend. And because we had just arrived in Africa we hit the ground running. Looking back, we did WAY too much at first, but we had a blast doing it.Saturday we hiked in Silvermine. It was COLD and WINDY!! The area were we were staying gets blown away by the cold Atlantic wind, The girls were troopers. Sarah walked most of the way..... she had help occasionally ;)
As you can see by the viedo I think I need to find a better word to describe how windy it was. One of the best parts of the trip was having built in aunts and uncles that helped out ALL the time. "Uncle" Nate helped Sarah up and down the mountain while Kent and I traded off carrying Emma. We didn't make it all the way to the top, mainly because after a certain elevation, you couldn't see much anyway because of the clouds.

Here we are after the adventure. We went back to Fishoek for dinner that night. Our group at right on the beach.... we even had a "guest" in the restaurant. There was a pigeon that always cleans up crumbs in on the floor, I guess he is now a permanent fixture in the establishment. ( I forgot to take a picture :(
