          ... us and we liked what we saw. We sat and ate oysters surrounded by the water of the Knysna River meeting the ocean. After a walk to the mainland waterfront we couldn't resist heading back to Tapas and Oysters for some more oysters especially after they said they were showing the rugby and it was non-smoking, win, win.

          The following day was our final day in Knysna and we ate out at the waterfront for breakfast planning our day. We returned back to the hostel for wifi and ...

          We also visited a small shebeen, once an unlicensed (and illegal) drinking den, now pretty much a normal bar. This is one of the negative sides of life here, alcohol abuse is a major issue with many people spending their weekends drinking away their earnings.

However, the guys on the bridge were great about trying to motivate me to go through with the jump. They already had my money too, so I wasn’t going to chicken out. As it got closer to being my turn to jump, I got more and more nervous. I almost cried at one point but wanted ...
