A dam wet walk

Today's rather wet walk took us past the Lewis Gay Dam which is easy to get to, but feels totally isolated in the mountains above Simons Town. Charles Gay was Mayor of Simons Town for 25 years and also Member of Parliament for the South Peninsula for 25 years. He is buried in the Gay family grave in the Old Burying Ground off Runciman Drive. The dam was constructed in 1952.

  1. I'm just always amazed at these wonderful open areas so close to the city. Like you are hunderds of km's away from it.
