St Francis Bay
After a filling home-made breakfast at Seaview B&B and a greenhouse tour I hit the road continuing west on N2 enjoying glimpses of the Indian Ocean…
…and the rolling hills of the Garden Route headed towards Tsitsikamma National Park.
First stop of the day was a
tourist trap parking lot on the west side of Paul Sauer bridge with a 630 foot (192 m) arch over the Storms River.
Completed in 1956, the Ricardo Morandi designed bridge is unusual for having inclined spandrel supports that radiate out from the main arch rib.
The Paul Sauer bridge is one of the tallest bridges in South Africa standing 405 feet (123.44 m) above the the water.
I stopped into the “gift shop” and bought some cool refrigerator magnets of South Africa’s Big 5 for Berta. Then continued down the road. More coming.
