Knysna Sunset

The Knysna Heads is one of the best know landmarks on the Garden Route. The sea pushes into the Knysna Lagoon through the Heads, which is short for headlands. The Eastern Head has a very - and I mean VERY - upmarket residential area on it, while the Western Head is a protected area called Featherbed Nature Reserve.

  12. Oh wow - my favourites .. sunsets! These are 'just' beautiful! You made my day! I haven't had much time to 'blog' this week - Bradley is on half-term so we are spending quality time together - he wants to go shopping as he gets a bubblegum milkshake out of the 'deal'! Monday was a bribe .. now it's his idea to go out! And then we pick up the 'wild child' Connor ......
