    Drove from the stunning setting of Wilderness to the beautiful Knysna, where we are staying in the quaint St James hotel and they upgraded us to the Presidential Suite. The perks of travelling in low session. Wow the weather here is very different to rest of the trip. For the first time we have felt cold, which is lovely as we get to be find ways …

    ... England who have been in SA for 14 years. To be honest, it's not quite what we are used to but it is adequate, although lacking and sound insulation!! Being s/c we had to pop out and buy some bits for breakfast and then went down to the Quays for sundowners. Back for a quick shower and then back down for dinner. Seafood of course! Weds we went to Plettenberg Bay (Plett) and had a 2 hour walk along the beach and back. One of us had a swim at the turning point! Then we went ...

The scenery is beautiful. The drive along the windy clifftop roads over looking some of the bays have a ...

    ... First sighting is of a right whale and to our pleasure she has a calf along side. We are treated to some lovely rolling and fin slapping and the pair of them swim right up to within feet of our boat! We see several more right whales through the day and a couple of pods of dolphin. All in all a glorious day on the water which as you all know is the perfect way to make me smile!

    Unfortunately for me the side effect of the sun is ...
