To Mossel Bay

Today we start the fun part of the trip and go down the garden route to Cape Town.  We left PE and headed down N2 highway , it was still cold outside especially in the mornings. 

When we reached Storm River Bridge we started looking for the entrance to the Tsitsikamma national park so that we get close to the mouth of the river. 

The park entrance was 50 Rand per person (2 KD) and the view was spectacular. We rode down until the restaurant and had something hot to drink before riding on to Mossel Bay.

We passed many bays and seafront towns that were very nice and roads along the coast that reminded us of Pacific Route 1 in California. 

We arrived in Mossel bay around 3 pm and stayed at the Point Village Hotel which was right by the seafront, we had lunch at a restaurant that overlooked the ocean where we could see surfers trying to catch waves.
