And eventually I started to descend into the Knysna forests ....

I really love this riding under a canopy of branches ...

And ended up at the Knysna Waterfront for lunch ...

Just to complete day 2,

After Lunch in Knysna I turned right onto the Seven Passes route, Phantom Forest road and drove through the Phantom pass and the Homtini pass before descending down towards Sedgefield were I met Eisbein.

Eisbein organised accommodation for us with family.

While on the Seven Passes route on Saturday, I saw the smoke from the fires around George.

It did not look good and we saw the effects the next day...... :-[

OK, so day 3 would complete the Seven Passes route, include the Montagu Pass which I have never done and then a route parallel to the R62 towards Calitzdorp ...... :deal:

From Caliitzdorp we would go towards Vanwyksdorp over the Rooiberg pass and on to Warmwaterberg for the night
