Our Annual Holiday 2013 - Part 2

After we had packed up in Storms River, I felt that we need not immeadiately rush the 600 kilometre drive home and that it would be nice to break the journey up with a stay over in Jongensfontein, some 10km past Stillbaai.

Several people had recommended the caravan park there and I had ridden past it a few times in the past while on a motorcycle rally in the area.

However, I was not prepared for what we had in store there. It was absolutley stunning. We arrived there without booking, stopping off in Stillbaai on the way to replenish supplies of food, wine, beer and braai wood. 

It was in the middle of the week and we expected the park to be very quiet but suprisingly it was quite busy. We were lucky to get a site right on the seafront that had just been vacated that morning. The ablution blocks were ample and spotless.

If anyone who read this blog considers going there, the only unusual thing is that there are almost no built in braai's and one needs to take a portable braai along. We purchased a very nice one in the little shop next to the campsite, which now comes along with us on all our trips. This shop is quite amazing and sells everything imaginable that one could need or may have left at home while on a camping holiday.

We stayed there for only 2 nights and in hindsite, should have stayed there much longer. We will definitely be back again for a longer stay. The sea is lovely and warm for swimming and there is a natural tidal pool just to the right of the campsite.

Here are a few images.
