--> Wilderness (SA)

I can't write a comprehensive report about today, but I do share the photographs with you. I need to "dry" something first....
I stayed another day with Paul and Sue Nicolas in their Bed & Breakfast in Wilderness and got on a 3-hour Wilderness Heritage Hiking Trail and after a little lunch I peddled on the serene waterways in this area in a canoe, even into the deep wildlife forests where I got thrilled by the fauna hiding out here.

Unfortunately I went head down the water after reaching the waterfall at the end of the 30-minutes Greater Kingfisher Trail that started when I couldn't canoe any further.

And it wasn't only me that went down... even my digital camera made bubbles. Oops! World problem! Uhm...

Tomorrow you'll see the results and how I continued my travelling.

Good night Wilderness!
