It's a pity I didn't bring any swords
Coming soon: A ghoulishly lekker local adventure on the Garden Route coast
A water-crazy kid, his loyal dogs, and his friend Blueberry - the ghost of a sailor boy - set out to find Blueberry's lost grandfather, last seen 150 years ago.
All the way up and down the coast - from Noetzie Beach, east of the Knysna Heads, to Mossel Bay far away to the west - this story weaves imagination around actual historic events.
… But then our heroes meet the most famous ghost ship of all: the Flying Dutchman. And her captain doesn’t like dogs...
