My house has the most amazing trees. They are over 100 years old, as is the house, and you can spot them in any postcard of Fish Hoek or in any history book (although much smaller).
My house was first bought by my grandparents many years ago and has since been passed down to my grandmother and now to my mom. It was the one of the first homes in Fish Hoek so it really has a monumental history and not only one made by family. Sadly this is where the chain will end but these trees will carry on growing and always be beautiful.
My house looks out over the ocean towards the rising sun. These pictures of the tree were taken early this morning when there was still a golden glow to the air, hence the glow to these pictures.
The tree’s are a type of Mountain Cypress. My grandmother declares that they are one of a kind here in Cape Town but we are all certain that there are more of them around although nobody knows for sure.
