Goukamma nature Reserve hike - Love Knysna Projects 1l - Skimmelkrans Beach6

The latest Love Knysna Projects trip found us hiking in a World Heritage Site, the Goukamma Nature Reserve and Marine Protected Area which lies in between Knysna and Sedgefield. Sunday reminded us how lucky we are to live in the Garden Route! After we crossed the river by hand-pulled pontoon, our route was a mixture of the Bushpig Trail, through the Milkwood Forest, and the Galjoen Trail, along the coast via Skimmelkrans Beach. In between,from the top of a fynbos covered hill, we experienced a magnificent view of the Goukamma … Read the full article…

Kindness for Knysna Schoolgirls

Knysna kindness

A wonderful thing happened this week. I made an appeal on Facebook for help in purchasing school shoes for twin teens in need. Strangely, sadly, no one responded. But then, coincidentally, someone who had owed me R200 for months, paid me. So off we went to PEP Stores (opposite Checkers), thinking that’d be the cheapest place to get them. Unfortunately, i wouldn’t be able to get them socks as they’re the striped kind that costs a fortune elsewhere (R35 each, R26 more than a sock without a stripe) – why … Read the full article…
