... do it again and again Therese and I barely move. Finally the guide gives up on us and the shark diving experience goes on without us. Eventually we are able to dive under when the sharks swim past and they are even larger than they appeared above the water. I am now under water, holding my breath, looking straight into the eyes of this great white beast swimming at me. I then feel what I can only believe to be an intentional kick from Therese. I soon realize that my dream ...

We took the R43 out of Hermanus, past Bots River Lagoon, then turned left on to the R44 and followed the coast through Betty's Bay. The winding road was spectacular with crystal blue sea on one side and steep mountains on the other. We stopped at one beach car park and had to scale large sand dunes to get to the actual beach but we were buffeted by flying sand. So after a ...

... the cage though.

Then it was mine and Laura’s turn. Getting into the water was probably the hardest bit, not because I was scared but because the water was like an ice bath and the thought of having to put my head under the water was not appealing.
