We’ve had some internet connection challenges for the past few days. It’s hard enough to get a cellphone signal in the Wild Coast areas, let alone internet service. Here we are in George for a couple of days, and here are some images that represent some of the places we’ve traveled through on the trip from Durban – approximately 800 miles of mostly rural roads, littered with goats, sheep, cattle and dogs.The wreck of the Jacaranda, a 2000 ton Greek coaster that ran aground at Qora Mouth in 1971.

Unfortunately the old steam train that used to use this line is no longer in service. Another casualty of budget cuts.Petal, Grace’s cat.
