... a bit disappointed, it was again worth the effort.
When it comes to catching up with Downton Abbey, we seem to have absolutely no self control. Once again (like in Chianti) we stayed up watching back to back episodes until almost 2 am. Totally absorbed in the fantasy of it all, we managed to conquer all of Season 3 in as many days and nights.

Still, Knysna did have some attractions. The town is at the north end of a large bay, separated from the Indian Ocean by a narrow channel between two headlands (known as The Heads locally). I decided to walk out there, which they told me at the hostel would take about an hour, but it turned out to be a bit further ...
