Location: Road trip Knysna - Oudtshoorn, South Africa

MapDay 2 began with a drive down to the harbour at Knysna to get breakfast. Again fantastic food in a fantastic location. We sat at the Waterfront where all the boats come into the harbour. Went out in a catamaran to see if we could spot any dolphins but they weren't playing ball! Had a great time though as the weather was good enough for us to sai between the Knysna Heads & out into the Indian Ocean(yes, that place...again...) Spent the rest of afternoon pottering round the town & spending money (of course) It's a beautiful seaside town with a lovely vibe. Again highly recommended. From here we took the Wilderness Trail through to George. Stopped off at the town of Wilderness so I could dipped my toes in the Indian Ocean (does anyone else feel a theme coming on here???) By this time is was getting late & we needed to head up into the mountains to get to Oudtshoorn to find somewhere to stay. Funnily enough we again fell on our feet & stayed at the most beautiful B&B with the most comfortable beds - at almost half the going rate! Me & Nat stayed i nthe garden room which I later found out is actually the owners, Dez & Liz's, bedroom! Freshened up & went out on the town! Lovely pub down road - great food & beer! Was a very long day so we had an early night. Need to make sure we're fresh for the ostriches tomorrow......
