After seeing elephants and warthogs in the wilds of Addo Elephant National Park (see previous post) I just couldn’t bring myself to head into what looked like a big city to me, Port Elizabeth. So I continued west and pulled off N2 at the first sign for a B&B in Seaview. A very interesting old house that’s been used as a B&B in the same family over 50 years.
My room was around back to the right. Very private with a place to park the car. My host and hostess let me use their computer and get online to check in at home.
There is a swimming pool in the yard and a huge tent was still erected from their son’s wedding a few days before. The bride and groom were married under this huge and ancient fig tree.
Breakfast was served in a separate building (pink building to right in first photo) used for banquets and Sunday brunch for the public. I got private service for a breakfast way to big for me to finish. My host has a big greenhouse where he grows greens, tomatoes, strawberries and other vegetables used in their restaurant. He also makes compost and raises worms. I got the royal tour and was so engrossed forgot to take photos. I hate when that happens.
From here I continued west in the Eastern Cape to Storms River along the coast. I’ll try to post that soon.
