Description

I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

01 Stormsriver peaks Tsitsikamma NP Eastern Cape ZA (1024x768)
In addition to indigenous forests Tsitsikamma National Park incorporates 50 miles (80 km) of rocky coastline with spectacular sea and landscapes where I headed next.

You've shown us such a variety of landscape and now seascape, South Africa is a wonderland for those who enjoy natural beauty.

You said, "The park is one of the largest Marine Protected Areas..."

That's a heckuva double-entendre. (lol)

Karen said...

Gorgeous scenery, must have been an awesome trip!

Great shots of some stunning scenery. I really need to make it to the ocean before too long.

Tsitsikamma reminded me slightly of the Oregon coast with the crashing waves and rock formations. I enjoyed this post!

Aaaaahhhhh.... The Tsitsikamma National Park is such a stunning place. The big rock the waves crash against that you photographed is called Skietklip which means Shooting Rock in English. The camp site at Storms River Mouth is one of my favorite camp sites because you are so close to where the waves crash on the rocks. I notice that you don't have pictures of the suspension bridge, so I assume you didn't have time to do the 1km walk down to the river mouth.

Beautiful....I love the ocean and crashing waves.

Gaelyn. Wonderful captures and facts of one of the most beautiful areas/provinces(the Western Cape) in South Africa. My children are on holiday there now and intend to do the Bungu Jump off the bridge if they can take little Joel (who turns one at the end of this month)! The flower is Tecoma Capensis (Cape Honeysuckle) Too beautiful. It shouldn't grow in the Free State but I had several thriving shrubs in the large garden next door. Thanks for the trip! (((hugs))) Jo

The open road is always so appealing. The crashing waves, brooding sky, rocky shores, lush valleys and forests are visual delights that are appreciated best during a road trip. Thanks for sharing your wonderful journey.

Oh, my heavens what a beautiful place on our earth. Thankfully, it's preserved. Those waves and foaming water, those dense rocks, amazing....amazing. Thank you for sharing your adventure.
