This is the view of the East Head of Knysna, as shot from the West Head, over the watery passage between the estuary and the sea. A reminder of magic history and ever present, wondrous geography.
Far below the photographer is a cave where Stone Age people lived 120,000 years ago, occupied by San people 3000 years ago.
Beneath the water, lies the 1904 wreck of a German ship called the Paquita. But don’t try swim to it from this side cause when the tide changes, 19-million cubic metres of water rushes through here (frightfully powerful and fast).
To the right, on the opposite shore, is Coney Glen. If you travel less than one kilometre further, in the direction of Noetzie, through bush and up and down dangerous rocks, and half way up a cliff, you’ll find a cave with a remarkable view of red earth reaching out to the Indian Ocean. Have any of you stood inside it, feeling like God of the Rocks?
