I for one love heights. I have no time for enclosed spaces being a bit claustrophobic myself. But heights? They are a different thing. I love those lifts that are all glass and go all the way up to the 10th floor (that’s as far as I’ve been in one of those lifts). I stand with my nose pressed against the glass looking down. It gives me quite a thrill. I’m looking forward to the time I can walk on one of those glass platform over the Grand Canyon. It may sound weird because I don’t like lifts, but the fact that I can see out (and people can see in in case it gets stuck or something) makes up for it.
Looking towards the old Jaffa Port – this is a gorgeous walk along the Tel Aviv promenade. I was approached by a man while I was photographing and he struck up a conversation. I brought that conversation to a screeching halt when he asked me where I was going. He was probably harmless but I kept looking over my shoulder as I walked.
This is one of my favourite places on earth! I’ve written ad nauseum about this piece of bliss in the middle of Cape Town. Well, I hope it hasn’t been ad nauseum. Here’s another pic, this one taken from the top of the Boomslang Tree Canopy Walkway. I’ve also written about that one, just click on the link in the previous sentence to read it.

When a brace of ducks – mamma-duck and her ducklings – decide to go for a walk in the middle of a Sunday afternoon it is inevitable that they are not allowed to do so in peace. As soon as I saw this happening, I knew what was coming.
Snaking away above the forest floor the Boomslang Tree Canopy Walkway at Kirstenbosch botanical gardens offers uninterrupted views of the southern Cape Peninsula. Boomslang is the Afrikaans name for a species of snake called the tree-snake (pronounced bw-om-slung).
Ent-like, the gnarled branches of the tree in the photo belie its age. I have no doubt it’s been around for many many decades.
When I took this pic I was cognisant of the fact that all I had was an iPhone. There was a wall behind me preventing me from walking backwards enough to capture the immensity of the outstretched branches.
I tried to show how far the branches stretched in the pic below.
Bliss: complete happiness, great joy, paradise, or heaven.
Via the shortest route, Cape Town is 1 399,6 kms from Joburg. 12h53 minutes by car on the N1. I prefer the 2 hour flight, after all my bliss place is waiting, the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens against the eastern slopes of Table Mountain.
