    The town is next to a river so they have water to keep it so nice and green.
    The rest of the surrounding area is quite dry.

    To the right are the docks. With 4 cranes.
    The Eastern Cape / PE area is quite dry at the moment, as you move down towards Wilderness, Pletternberg bay and Knysna / George you get
    beautiful forest areas with hardwood trees and dense fern undergrowth. Absolutely green :) there are hiking trails and tree to tree walkways and slides that I still have not been to.
    I will try and post some pics of the Gamtoos Valley some time. It is our grocery basket and supplies a lot of export oranges.
    South Africa is a vast country and you can experience almost all climates in it.
