Listening to the Beach Boys, Willie Nelson (and Dennis Prager) made the time pass quickly. The rolling hills were so green and velvety they reminded me of an old home-screen …

Lazy Sunday in Plettenburg Bay

A travel blog entry by amydeb


Today we took the short drive to the last stop on our trip, Plettenburg Bay. Given that it is a Sunday and the views from our guest house are so nice, we are just going to hang out today - walking on the beach, sitting and looking at the bay. Tomorrow is our last day, and we'll be filling it up, so today we rest. ...

... my leg on a stick without breaking it and walked off limping.

So I'm pretty sure Joey isn't scared of me and I'm also fairly certain what he's doing now counts as bullying.

Apart from that it's been a good couple of weeks. We visited the elephant sanctuary which was lovely and walked with elephants in hand and got 41 likes on my profile picture (yeah I can tell you're impressed). We also visited the beach which means I now wear several layers of makeup to try ...

A Relaxing Day in Paradise

A travel blog entry by eldonsteeves


... We were thrilled. We also talked to the Visitor Info Center yesterday and she shared with us about Robberg’s Fish, and another deli in the same area, the Industrial area.. The only things we bought there today were some smoked venison (Impala?) and black pepper salami for our lunch.

When we got "home" we had a lovely lunch of meats, cheeses, fruit, olives, pate and of course a loaf of that wonderful bread and a half ...

... the boat for the day and did the tour guide patter – really relaxing for Nick and I who sat back looking at beautiful scenery. Did get stung on my bum though when we stopped on shore for a pee – mind you I was glad it was a wasp not a snake after hearing stories at the snake sanctuary.

Met an artist – Malachi Smith in Knysna – quite a character, also a writer and gave us a book of his about women in ...

    Carolyn Cooney is such a wonderful, warm, informative hostess. I am so impressed with her entrepreneurial spirit and savvy. Her home was our home, we felt so comfortable here. Her staff were extremely attentive and anticipated our every need. The breakfasts were fantastic and the real silver flatware and Spode China made the meal extra special. Just lovely.
