    ... cool watching their trunks reach out towards you looking for the food and then gently taking it from your hand with their big leathery trunk. Once the buckets were finished the elephants were called out from behind the bar so that we could pat them and meet them. There's nothing like being so close to an elephant when the trainer says "watch he doesn't step on your feet" or "watch behind you the elephants trying to get passed" Then it was time for the ride!! ...

    ... here!

    Finally the rain had cleared and we made the most of it by going on a long walk through Natures Valley, down towards the coast and back. The walk was very varied, walking through thick forest, along a river bed no longer flowing and along coastline. Amazing.

We then stopped and the trainers introduced each elephant before we went up and stroked/learnt about the elephants. ...

    ... this is what everyone had been waiting for. This was most definitely a day for us to turn spectators with waves easily topping 12ft, and the surfing was unbelievable to watch.

    Next stop was Plettenburg bay, where the surfing wasn't up to as much so we had a go at body boarding. The town felt more upmarket, with a lovely high street and the scenery was beautiful. We took a big walk out to the peninsula about 3km out ...

    ... especially at night!

    The countryside here is very scenic. In the heart of the Garden Route, it has lovely long stretches of shoreline, behind which stand hazy blue mountains. Lovely. Except it was just too cold most of the time to get out and explore. Warm feet by the fire = mmm.

    From here I go to Port ...
