Driving Along the Garden Route


The Garden Route is a stretch of the south-eastern coast of South Africa running from Mossel Bay in the Western Cape to the Storms River in the Eastern Cape. It is known for being extremely scenic, as you wind your way past vinyard, lagoons, mountains, and beautiful views of the ocean.  We drove part of the Garden Route making our way from Groot Brakrivier to Plettenberg Bay. 

During our drive it was quite rainy which made the scenery seem quite mystical, however it unfortunately did not make for great picture taking weather (as I was also in charge of navigation). We did make a quick stop in the small town of Wilderness to snap some pictures of the beach. 

We also stopped at the Scarab Craft Village in Sedgefield for lunch and enjoyed checking out the locally made crafts and foods there. After speaking to a local about her decision to move there from Cape Town to get away from all of the hustle and bustle, we too were tempted to find a place to rent and just stay there.

I'd definitely like to revisit the Garden Route and get to know more of the towns along the way since I was only able to get a tiny glimpse of it.
