December 4, 2011-Birds of Eden & Prince Alfred Pass
On Sunday we fired up the merc and hit the road, eastbound out N2.
The Birds of Eden aviary was the first destination and that was the star attraction as far as we're concerned. Click here to see more photos.
After lunch, maybe a bit late it turned out, we headed northward to cross the Price Alfred Pass and take R62 home.
We crawled over the rough gravel road for hours, climbing higher and higher, and wondered if we get across before dark, and that was only the first pass. The second one took us through a narrow gorge and the afternoon shadows had us into darkness.
But at 6:00 PM we came out onto R62, a long straight road through the dry rolling hills on the other side of the mountians and we let the merc stretch its legs.
Getting back to Mossel Bay before dark was easy with that car.
