We had to be at the Reserve early today because the Wednesday Walkers had told us they wanted to give us a donation as a thank you for laying out trails for them and what a generous donation it was.

They will probably make even more use of the Reserve now that other places such as Groendal and The Island Nature Reserve have pushed up their prices to a prohibitive level.

As a thank you I offered to guide them along the Boulder Trail which was much appreciated and they enjoyed the views even though it is very desolate after the fire and some sections of the path were a bit scary.

Further we busied ourselves with looking after the trees, trying to make the Aloe koppie a little more respectable and working in the nursery.
