Perfect Endings...

Our first day was rapidly drawing to a close. After our exploration of the beautifull Western Head we had a quick and scenic lunch at the Western Head Restaurant. :) 
On our way back to Teniqua we took a detour to the old Belvidere Church, also known as the Holy Trinity Church.

Affectionately known simply as the Belvidere Church, it was built largely as a result of the love affair between Thomas Henry Duthie, and his wife, Caroline. 

The tiny Belvidere Church - it seats no more than about 20 people, and its nave is only 5.3 metres (17’6”) wide - was modeled on the Norman churches of the 11th and 12 Centuries, and is built of locally mined sandstone and locally felled timbers (look out for the stinkwood beams and ceilings). Its foundation stone was laid on 15 October, 1851, and it was consecrated on the 5th of October, 1855




After a short visit we got back into the car and headed towards Brendton on Sea.  Brenton-on-sea is a small seaside village due west of Knysna. It is popular with holiday makers, fishermen and paragliding enthusiasts.













We arrived back at our little log cabin high up in the trees just in time to enjoy the sunset... and then we shared a grass of red to end a perfect day. :)
