Afternoon outride 01

Took the road yesterday afternoon to Rooisand Nature Reserve, between Hermanus and Kleinmond
The famous Kleinmond wild horses roam here
Wonder if I will spot them?









Entrance to the walkway, it's wheelchair friendly up to one of the lookout points for a great view over the Botriver estuary





And I'm in luck today, as I stopped, I spotted a group of horses, nice

Got fairly close to them



The bird hide, where one can spend hours sitting and watch the birds



From the bird hide I spotted some more horses



On my way back, this little foul was relaxing in the afternoon sun, no problems of the world for him



Just had to get a afternoon sunset pick before it's too late



On my way back to Hermanus, the sun was setting in the West, turned off at Hawston and went to the harbour for the last light of the day





Thinking of Louis Armstrong, "What a wonderful world" and that last few words - "Oh yeaaaaaaaaaah"

Nice pics, dualthing! My first thought upon starting to read your post was, "He rode into a nature preserve in South Africa on a motorcycle! He's insane!" I was picturing a "safari-type" scenario with large and dangerous beasts approaching vehicles.

Looks like a nice place.
