Drive The drive from Cape Town to Wilderness took us through beautiful countryside that resembled a cross between California’s 101 and red rock country; wine lands and red mountains. We stopped along the coast for Dave to surf a picturesque right point break called Mossel Bay.

IMG_8293 Wilderness is a quaint seaside village tucked between forested mountains and a long thick beach. A national park stretches up the mountainside from town. We went for a wonderful hike along a river up to two waterfalls. The vegetation from a far looked so much like home, but on a closer look was obviously foreign.

IMG_8358 In the afternoon Dave scored some good waves at Victoria Bay. I walked around the small beach, took some pictures and entertained myself watching this adorable little bird catch insects in the cliff vegetation and in between the rocks.
