    ... the harbour. Smart holiday homes, tennis courts and real estate agents. Next over to Brenton on Sea south of the town and approached by a long climb up then down to the south side of the Heads. Really just a lot of holiday homes but on a beautiful wild sandy beach. The rains started at 4pm as we returned to Paradise House. Went back to the Waterfront for another meal at el Pescador where we had local oysters. Superb. A very good restaurant and not expensive. Rained all ...

    ... took us up to the top of the Western Head where the views over the lagoon and down to the narrow, rocky estuary below are spectacular. A 2.2km walk down through the fynbos (small bush) and coastal forest was an unforgettable experience with breath-taking views around every corner. We clambered down to ancient Khoi-Khoi caves and then finished the walk along the seashore to a small restaurant which is built into the Milkwood trees. The trip finished with long ...

A nearby overlook gave us a very satisfying view of the beach where we were sitting just an hour or so ago.

    ... s no excuse not to do it.

    Our next adventure for the day was the local farmstall shop for lunch. Boasting homemade cheeses, salami, relishes, with some crackers thrown in too it was an easy decision to share a cheese platter watching the rain fall around us. With non-stop yummy food fuelling us we also rented some bikes to explore the forest (which despite our enthusiasm we weren’t very good at!)

    Leaving Altertina today and the Garden Route Game Lodge and making my way to Knysna where my friends Tanya and Marsel live. They couchsurfed with me in November 2010 when Marsel participated in the Ironman 70.3 even here in Clearwater.

    It's an easy drive along route N2 and there are plenty of signs that guide me to the Paradise B&B where I will stay for 3 ...
