    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.

    ... the 1500s for fresh water and the Dutch in 1778 for timber. It was also the location of a whaling station until the early 1900s.

    We are now ensconced in the Whale Song Hotel, in thatched accommodation, reminiscent of the TV series Upstairs and Downstairs. We have exchanged appalling jokes across, above and below balconies.

    ... I haven't seen before, though the snake varieties change from one continent to the next. But seeing them in glassed-in pens is probably better than coming across them in the wild.

    Knysna and Elephants!

    We left the game lodge reluctantly to head back to the coast. We stopped off for a quick lunch in the seaside town of Knysna, and browsed some of the shops a bit. We'll be back in Knysna tomorrow to see more of the ...

    The drive from Somerset West to Plettenberg Bay afforded us gorgeous views of the undulating countryside. Fruit farming, sheep farming some ostrich farming, and later some cattle farming was scattered by the roadside but it was the rolling hills that impressed me most. On the way, we stopped at a small bakery and bought Koeksisters, a delightfully sticky white deep-fried pastry. They ...

    Monday 2nd April

    First day of work, started at 7am (******* early!). We basically followed some guy around all day and learned what he was doing. Our first mission was to find the resident domestic cat and give him his meds. We searched around the cafe and office where he would usually be found that early but no luck. We headed through the gate towards the main house as this ...
