From Wilderness we drove to Knysna (pronounced "Nice-Na"; pronounced by me, to everyone's great irritation, "Ka-Nice-A").
Our new hostel looked just lovely, the people were kind, and best of all, they produced a key to our door immediately upon check-in!

The plan was to meet Ted & Sarah and do some hiking (with Ted and me being Supertrekers, we were thinking a 20-30 KM jaunt), perhaps some diving, and definitely some relaxing in this small harbor town.

Mostly we ended up relaxing. We found more amazing deserted beaches, stumbled upon a local brewery and did a tour and tasting, and swam in the icy cold Indian Ocean.

Both the Meshkovs and the Martens were successful beer tasters.

Sadly, the diving was canceled due to unfavorable water conditions (really rough and really cold), but we did manage to introduce Ted & Sarah to the deliciousness that are oysters. I know, I know, all you taste is the Tabasco, cocktail sauce, & lemon – I am still not sure why we need a $3 delivery instrument….
