It’s not difficult to stay here all day. Coffee and croissant from very early in the morning, lunch, sandwiches, brownies, and beer and bubbles in the evening. The finely tatooed ‘captain bread’ is the maestro here.
Every full moon we walk to the top of Lions Head. It’s a part walk, part climb and we invariably return once the sun’s set and the full moon risen, so the journey down can be quite interesting. The view from the top is spectacular. I often sit here high above the city and watch the late night flights to Europe carving their way through the thick, liquid purple sky, happily accepting that they’ve left me here.
