Heading inland from Knysna along the Prince Alfred Pass road, one encounters a totally different landscape. We took a drive out there to see a property on which our Knysna friends were contemplating building a small cottage. As you can see, this would be an incredible place in which to wake up every morning, but a bit of a schlep if you run out of milk or sugar at 9.00 pm.
This is an area where proteas grow in wild abundance.
While we were there some wildebeest on the adjoining farm ambled past.
At the bottom of the property there’s a river which one can reach via a steep descent. The problem with this is that the one thing one always faces with descent like this is that there’s always a steep ascent afterwards. However, mindless of the hardship to follow, butr ever mindful of the snakes one could encounter, we made our way to the valley floor.
After a long, hard slog back up the hill and a somewhat dusty drive home, a perfect end to the day.
Until next time… 🙂
