    Must say Pieter said that, tongue in the cheek. We do welcome visitors, especially those who will spend money here as we need it. That is why I find it sad that some people are so upset when they now cannot holiday on the beach and complain about the prices of alternatives. You use our local resources (roads, water, food, etc) but wants to drop zero into the local economy towards maintenance and improvements?

    I have just read the article on News 24 and have similar thoughts.

    Why not punish just the guilty and close only the facility that was used for the "party" ?

    Now everyone that would have been in a much safer environment in terms of spreading COVID will flock to the shops, restaurants and other "risky" facilities.

    Just a last thought before I leave the garden route

    Banning people off the beach did not send them into the malls etc. They went home, Knysna was like a ghost town yesterday.

    Hotels and retailers I chatted to is talking about a 30 percent season.

    There is already many open retail space in town. Sadly I expect a lot more empty spaces.

    I have to assume that this is what Cyril needed was for most to go home asap to reduce travel and spreading, without actually closing the borders.

    Good luck to any Southern Cape tourism businesses, I hope you make it.

    To those that were here or who cancelled and whose holiday did not work out, "More is nog 'n dag" (We will holiday again next time.)

    Well! As Cobus rightly mentioned. The Garden route has much more to offer than only the sea and lagoons. Forest walks and drives. Birdwatching, abseiling, 4x4 routes, ziplines, bungee jumping, museums, game drives, berry farms, golf, cycling, kayaking, kloofing, and of course the national past time. A good braai! As for the covid regulations and peoples opinions. I am not a conformist, neither am i one of the sheeple, to be brainwashed with BS. Watch out for the 3rd wave 4- 5 months from now!
