Coffee Bay in the Eastern Cape. That is where I last reported walking.

In the meantime life happened and I am still in the armchair, recuperating from a foot operation.

This did not prevent me from doing research and deciding where my next destination will be. I found these wonderful pictures which again inspired me and whet my appetite to visit this beautiful part of our country soon.

The Hluleka Reserve is situated about 20km from Port St Johns on the East Coast of South Africa.  It consists of a diverse range of eco systems, ranging from rocky seashores, golden beaches, lagoons and lush forests of quinine, coral, stink ebony and Natal fig trees . The main attraction of the reserve to nature lovers, is the abundance of birdlife which can be seen in the reserve.

There are seven seven double-storey wooden chalets each with a loft room that offers from-your- bed views of the Indian Ocean, a fully equipped kitchen and a lounge leading onto a long balcony overlooking the  rocky coastline, rolling hills, thick bush and changing tides.

I trust that in a few weeks time I can resume my walking programme , but in the meantime I can enjoy the wonders of our country by letting my fingers do the walking on the internet.
