Discovering secret spots in the Tsitsikamma

Geocaching is the ideal activity for people who love to travel and discover new places.  Yes I know I've said it before and I will say so again many times in the future.  On a visit to the Tsitsikamma I went in search of a cache called Elands Delight (GCX2QF) and even though it was raining (yes we geocache come rain or shine) I was very keen to find it.  The coordinates took me onto the old road a couple of kilometers east of Storms River Bridge and down a steep set of cement steps into the Elands River gorge. WOW! What a beautiful spot.  I really have a very soft spot in my heart for the Tsitsikamma and discovering a place like this was very special.

At the bottom of the gorge is a weir damming up the black forest water of the Elands River into a swimming where I'm sure the local kids hang out on warm days.  Looking up to the left (top picture) is the old bridge and to the right (above) is the N2 bridge.  I really would have liked to spend some more time but by now I was soaked and didn't want to get my camera too wet.  In the words of the Terminator... "I'll be back".
