Day Four – Anticlimatic walks and as far south as we can get

sunny 24 °C

Went for a walk to see the great Storms River Mouth crash down dramatic waterfalls in a hellfire of fury into the ocean only to get there and find the bridge to the view point was closed. We got close and even though we didn’t see it, I could sense that it was amazing. Got back to camp and told some Dutchies that the walk was pointless, they schmiled as Dutchies do and carried on regardless.

Nipped into Plett for some beach fun and laughed at the beginner surfers missing every wave. I can’t surf either, but I was dry...

Went to Knysna and bought some world class Argentina flip flops for two quid, leftover from the world cup no doubt but a definite result.

Somers almost lived the dream with her 5.7km coast that broke all the rules I laughed as we then got pulled over again for Police Engagement #3 this time they were very polite, and although they had clipboards and there were lots of them I think they just wanted a chat.

Anyways, today was largely a day of driving, but we have internet access and are camping ten kms from the southernmost point in Africa, superlatives will abound tomorrow, for now its dark and we have beers that need drinking.

Can't help but notice you are now further from Norfolk than when you began. If you're heading Franschhoek way you should pick up the Glen Carlou Chardonnay which has won some serious kudos in the decanter awards (also have lunch- as much raw game as a man can eat). The bordeaux blend is also stonking value for money. Also, Best wine tour ever: De Toren.
Sat at work with a room of dead poultry and envious! Ian
