Hiking, squirrels and a lot of Picnics in Deer Park

We’ve been all about deer park lately! Its our quick lets go hiking somewhere place that’s so close to the city and just amazingly beautiful.  Walking around beautiful trees, little streams, being pleasantly surprised by the endless ocean with just a touch of urban feel and being made feel small by the monstrous table mountain.   After our hike we usually go find a place to sit under the trees to eat some treats and have a talk before heading back and getting started with our day.  I wish I could just sit there forever.

We’ve gone to deer park quite a few times and I have not seen one deer, it feels like it should be covered in deer, maybe its an ironic name and I guess squirrel park doesn’t sound as nice.

^^ A little stream among the trees.  I almost broke my neck after this photo I turned around and didn’t see a gigantic rock, but somehow managed to save myself from serious injury.  Carl grabbed my arm somewhere in between all the commotion.
