Plunge boldly into the thick of life, and seize it where you will; it is always interesting.
- Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749-1832), German writer and statesman
When I realized Cape Point is practically the southern-most tip of the continent of Africa, I thought it was neat that I got to see it. John and Tina took me there for a lovely afternoon, and although the sky was gray and the temps were chilly, we enjoyed walking around the area.
While I captured a shot of the beautiful flowers (above), Tina noticed this caterpillar in the foliage. As I got closer to take a picture, the furry spots near the head puffed up... I guess to scare me away!
