This is how we found and crossed the Bloukrantz in April.
I thought it was the perfect way to cross this infamous river.
We arrived there 30 minutes before low tide.
Only had to remove our shoes - what a pleasure.
I just had to share this image.

Jealousy will get me nowhere. We had low tide in the early morning and had no chance of making it to the river in time. At 10h30, when we finally arrived (after the rush of trying to get there), we had to contend with fast in-flowing water at chest depth, and both jellyfish and bluebottles with which to contend.

ANYONE that can walk that river has Not experienced the fury that the Otter can throw at them .... :tongue:

I agree Scott - although I'd prefer super low tide anytime.
We also had our share of swimming across - albeit not "furious" - with 60m of ski rope etc etc.

Here Pete, on a different occasion is "on the rope":
