Farewell to Cape Town

Many of the Comminution '14 delegates are staying on for a few days to enjoy the sunshine, which has blessed us over the past week, and to explore this beautiful part of the world.

Amanda and Jon fly back to the UK tomorrow, while Barbara and I have an early morning flight to Namibia, where we will be touring for 8 days.

This afternoon Jon and I were joined by thirteen conference delegates for our hike to the top of Table Mountain, via Platteklip Gorge.

Congratulations to the 10 who made it to the top, particularly to John Starkey, who at 77 is our oldest ever Table Mountaineer.


  1. A great walk up and the beer at the top was well deserved!

  2. Fantastic walk (climb!). A great day for it but very hot. Well done to John Starkey, that was amazing. Thanks to Barry and Jon for arranging it. Cheers, Mike Battersby p.s. I must have missed the beers!

  3. Congratulations John. You are a legend. Last time I was in Cape town I took the cable car.
