Day 115: East London to Port Elizabeth 314 km 22.5-25.5°C

It only takes a moment to smile
But it opens up another world
Friendship 

From east London we ride along the southern eastern cape route,
Long straight roads...
Swooping with  yellow garlands.

Clouds make big statements in the sky
They deliver no rain today,
But keep the temperatures down.

We stop at Kenton-on-sea
Following a big pink blown-up swan
On its way to the river to float upstream on the incoming tide.

A wonderful warm welcome from new friends,
Family of our relatives Grant and Penny,
New members of Team Kiwi -  Nick and Katie.


 
Simphiwe in East London. A superb forecourt attendant for BP . BP should 'clone' him and his magical personality.
 
 

 

 

 
 

 

 
Nick...Team Kiwi member.
 
Getting ready to go and float in the river.

 
We stoppedd along the way and met a relative of Orlanda. Alas we didn't meet the owner.
We have started to see a few more touring bikes on the road now.

 

Port Elizabeth has a magnificent golden horseshoe beach.

 
 
Teddy the Newfoundland.
He smiled,
Reminded me of Riley.
 
Security fencing  is ubiquitous.

 
A referrees whistle?
 
This is one of a series of paintings in our hotel based on the Football World Cup in 2010 by artist, Duncan Stewart 
  
 

 
One of my precious pearls...
