On Earth, there is no Heaven, but there are pieces of it.
In my earlier posts, I’ve mentioned about our unforgettable South Africa trip, taken early this year, that left us spellbound and totally in love with the beautiful country. Of the many unique experiences we had, one that definitely stands out is the Sunset Cruise on the Knysna Lagoon. It was, in every sense of the word, an absolutely magical one— one that we had decided on the spur of the moment on our second last day, as we made our way back to Cape Town from Port Elizabeth.
Knysna, we discovered, is a town that is built on the northern shore of a large warm-water estuary—the Knysna Lagoon. The estuary opens to the Indian Ocean after passing between two large headlands. These are popularly known as “The Heads”, and have come to be associated with the loss of boats and fishermen that pass through their treacherous and unpredictable waters.
On the recommendation of our tour guide, Derek, we set off for the sunset cruise, to chill our aching feet from all the walking that we had been doing over the last couple of days. There was no better way to end the day than swaying to the gentle breeze, as we revelled in the magnificence of the Knysna lagoon, watching the pink haze spreading all across the sky. While some tourists were seen enjoying their wine and oysters, the rest of us were busy scurrying for vantage positions on the deck to grab those sunset shots, as the boat cruised along.
Somewhere, quietly, amidst the flurry of activities that kept us busy, the African sun started to set over the lagoon. Sharing, below, a few shots from that memorable evening.
Our skies here have been rather dull lately, so we’ve not had much colour that’s been worth capturing. But, now that it seems to be clearing up, I am collating a few shots which will be up on the blog soon. So, tell me, how has the sky been in your part of the world?
