    ... passed within touching distance of the cage. Near the end of this session, Ingrid, a large great white breached very close to the cage, giving everyone in the cage a rush of adrenalin.

    During the introduction to the tour we were informed that great white sharks are now becoming an endangered species, hunted by man namely for their dorsal fin (shark fin soup) and their jaws. Expecting some 1000 great whites in their area, only about 500 have been documented. ...

    ... way over to get out of the tank, it became quickly evident that this, like rowing, is not an activity for short people. Therese finds herself precariously perched on top of the tank. One large wave and bye-bye, she will become the delicious lunch to a shark. Luckily, the guide was able to lift her up into the boat without incident.

In fact, the area surrounding Gansbaai is known as the best land-based whale-watching destination. Sure enough, as we were drinking our wine and watching the sun lower on the horizon, we saw a whale surface not very far from shore.

    ... and had some interesting tastings... ostrich, crocodile, venison sausage, chicken, springbok, and warthog. Our unanimous favorite was...ostrich?? It was really good and we did not expect
