    ... was a bucket of grain by our feet, which we were expected to feed them with.

    Later in the afternoon, we headed back to the coast to Mossel Bay. We relaxed at the point of Mossel Bay amongst the rock pools with an ice cream. I found a quaint self catering apartment called Gewel Guesthouse, which gave us stunning views of the sea where we could watch the sunset. ...

    ... to feed the Ostrich out our hand and mouth, Rachel got an ostrich neck massage, we were able to stand on ostrich eggs. We actually wanted to find an Ostrich omelette for breakfast but had no luck - we also didn't look too hard since breakfast was provided at the hotel.

After the ostrich farm, we were planning to go to the ...
