Winter Solstice-Watchman’s Cave

June 21, 2013- I was invited by the Sacred Sites Foundation of South Africa to join for a winter solstice mid day hike to the Watchman’s Cave on Lions Head. At 12 noon exactly on the winter solstice day the sun comes thru and lights up the eye of the watchman. I was so excited for this hike as I’ve been to one of the hikes before with Dean Liprini on last years solstice and it was wonderful. This time his partner Fiona Hinds led our group. I invited a few friends, and we met another woman on the hike named Regine who does spiritual work and is in Cape Town. Our group was wonderful. When we got to the cave, the clouds covered the sky so we didn’t see any light coming through the Watchman’s eye. The Watchman is a rock formation in the shape of a man’s head which covers the cave. We had a little ceremony, played music and soaked up the energy on this special day. I love what Fiona and Dean are doing. They are bringing awareness to all about our sacred sites on Table Mountain and beyond. Thank you.
