Traveling from Dwarskersbos to Eland’s Bay

From Laaiplek we traveled about 12 km further to Dwarskersbos.

This building style gives the holiday accommodation an interesting look and the name says it all…No hurry what so ever!

 Junior - so tired...

We decided to overnight in the caravan park and our old Labrador took his afternoon nap.

Bruno - "what is this?"

Bruno – “what is this?”

While Junior was snoring away inside the motor home, Bruno (a Pointer) was busy exploring outside.  He has never seen a tortoise before and he was so intrigued by this  creature…

We left early the next morning to continue on our journey.  We are on our way to Eland’s Bay.

As we followed the “loop” Road and got closer to Eland’s Bay, the Atlantic Ocean with it’s White, Sandy Beaches stretched out ahead of us.

We all did a bit of exploring and after a while our four legged ones were peaceful and happy.  We made our way to the Eland’s Bay Cave.

A path is laid out to the Cave, but it is quite steep.

Once we reached the Cave, we knew that the slight short of breath and aching calve mussels was a small price to pay for what we saw.

The view is Breathtaking! One can see for miles… To me this was an ideal spot to pitch a tent.  Unfortunately it is NOT ALLOWED!










Eland’s Bay Cave is a Rock Art Site dating back 10 000 years.

Here we could learn a bit more about the incredible Rock Art in the Cave.



We were intrigued by the different shapes, sizes and colour of the rock formations.

One last look at the Dirt Road below, the Atlantic Ocean reaching for the Horizon and the water filled Rock Pools, shimmering in the sun… Time to Go!



Driving around Baboon Point,  little fishing boats form part of the flora at the foot of the mountain.

Accross the road more fishing boats…each with their own number.

Typical of the Coast, the mist can roll in off the sea at any time….We made a quick pit-stop and while I got the kettle going for a hot cup of coffee, Bruno and Junior checked out the environment. 

OK ! I'm ready to go again!

OK guys,  I’m ready to go again!

Wait, I'm still looking for the right spot!
