Second day 3rd leg - Witsand

This continues the series of my Motorcycle Adventure travels from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth which is the first goal, over a two day period. Details of the whole trip here.

Witsand is an amazing beach at the mouth of the Breede River here: Witsand Google Maps location

I finally blasted into Witsand looking for more petrol, keeping topped up just in case. I first looked for a garage and then after finding an old petrol station attached to the local store I was told they do not sell petrol anymore. I was told where to go.

Old houses opposite the grocery store
On my way I found and stopped at a good view point overlooking the beach and the river that flows into the sea.

Nice house someone has retired to - the views are amazing

What an excellent place to spend some time on holiday overlooking both the river mouth and sea
From here I went to the local shops and found the Garage. Filled up and carried on out of town on the R322 looking for the turn off for a place called Vermaaklikheid.

Anyone for Pizza?
Short visit, making a mental note to come back here for a weekend sometime and chill out on the beach with some long beach walks for miles.
