On the Monday, we headed off to Storms River.
Here we are, set up smack bang on the waters edge.
Storms River is another special place on earth. I managed to book
a waterfront site which was brilliant. The sites are a bit small though
and could do with some "expansion". The activities here
are numerous as well. There are a number of walks and in particular,
there is a trail along the coast which is the first part of the Otter
trail and leads to a waterfall with a sea cove where the kids had
much fun jumping in and swimming around.
Lindsay and the kids did a lot of snorkeling in some of the pools
around the resort and in one particular pool, saw a sting ray. One
exciting day, dolphins were playing in the waves to our right. This
attracted so much interest from all the visitors that before long,
there was nearly a solid line of people along the coast watching them.
If I lived near Storms River, I would be there on a regular basis,
if not every second month. Go there and visit, you will love it.
we are set up on the "water front". Every night
we were lulled to sleep by the waves and thoroughly enjoyed
and sounds of the sea.

caravan and looking towards the camp site.
is Storms River restaurant and shops. Here one can have a
meal on the deck in the photo on the left or get supplies
from the shop which is to the left and behind the restaurant.
Unfortunately we found the shop to
cater more for tourists in the way of Curios then basic
supplies. I know it was holidays, but we were unable to
obtain potatoes for over 3 days once we arrived.
The beach and pool in the photos is
a snorkeling area and both John and Lindsay spent 2 or so
times here. Unfortunately though, it was a bit murky and
not the best snorkeling that they had
is some of the cabins available for visitors and including
I know that this is an National Park, but this was totally
unexpected. These guys popped down most times in the evenings
and ate the grass in front of the Caravan.
Although they came very close, if someone
tried to go a bit too far, they would move off. As you see
in the bottom left photo, If one just sat there and observed
(Lindsay in this case), they would simply go about their
is John getting his daily dose of adrenalin.
When I offered for him to go, he jumped
at it. And if he could go again and again, he would have.
He loved it.
Luckily he does not work there as he
would never give the paying customers a chance!
the Wednesday, we took a ride into Plettenburg bay. This is
as we were leaving
Till next time keep well, travel safe and enjoy.
