Knysna --> Plettenberg Bay forest (SA)

My apologies to everybody as I can't YET describe this day to you. What started with a cereal breakfast at the Overlanders Lodge in Knysna ended with a 5-course dinner at the 5 STAR Hunter Country House, located in the the beautiful green forest between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay.
This day was so unique and so different from my ordinairy travels - was not really used to the luxury and comfort this special place offered me complimentary!

I was being spoiled all day long and it felt very good, of course.

I am thankful to all the people at the Hunter Country House because I had a really very very pleasant stay in their Oak Tree cottage, but I just cannot put this day into words yet. It's so undescribable.

It will take a while. And as I am trying to write this report a couple of days later, so much else had also happened that the words of this day are blocking my thoughts.

Look at the photographs and you might understand it. I hope to tell you about this day later.

Good night Hunters!
