    Wonder how long till it's gone. I've seen some pics of it, no ways anyone can swim in that water.

    I have also seen some pics, a buddy is on holiday on route. Plet looks bad. Such bad timing.

    Yip. Luckily this is the only year in the past few years we haven't gone to the garden route. Feel for the other guys though.

    Can clearly see the red tint on the surface of the water. This is Plett.

    Ill try to send up my drone today and get some pics. Weather depending though. We had some rough seas the past few days and looked like it faded a bit but will see once the sun is out
