I felt like a bloody tourist hurrying to the next sight to take a few photos, jump back in the car, and speed off to the next stop. Not my usual mode of slow and take it all in travel.
After almost a month of exploring from Johannesburg to Kruger National Park, Monks Cowl in the Drakensberg, and the Garden Route along the Indian Ocean I would finally visit the Cape of Good Hope before this journey ended.
I’d been gifted with multiple rainbows and only a few drizzles along the coastal drive from Hermanus. But even a downpour wasn’t going to keep me from getting to the Cape. This lush landscaped peninsula must experience amazing storm activity situated between two major ocean currents.
And the last thing I expected to find here was ostriches having last seen them, and ridden one, back in the dryer Oudtshoorn area of the Little Karoo.
At any stop along the way I could have just sat listening to the surf, watching the waves and birds.
But alas, I was in a hurry and Needed the obligatory photo above. In fact everybody kind of politely waits in a makeshift Q taking turns being photographed and helping out those folks who are traveling alone like myself.
Wanting to get to my accommodations before dark I only explored one of the many side roads in this part of Table Mountain National Park.
The beach at Buffels Bay shows only a part of the amazing variety of marine life found in this region.
And could be a shell collector’s dream, if not in a National Park.
There is just so much to see I’ll have to return.
