Early wake up call today - 0330. Yuck. Off to Gansbaai in a van for the great white shark adventure. On arrival at Marine Dynamics we were warmly greeted by Pieter and directed to have breakfast. Pieter wondered about our decision not to take seasick pills (but we didn't have time to get them anyway), and then directed us to breakfast, consisting of plenty of fried foods. We sat with a fellow from England, David, enjoyed our breakfast and conversation. We then had a ...

... back on the road for Gansbaai, that night's destination. Before checking in at our guesthouse, we tried to visit the Gansbaai lighthouse, but it closed at 3 p.m. and we couldn't even access the grounds. It was pretty even from a distance, though, so we satisfied ourselves with that. When we arrived at our guesthouse, we learned that they had to bump us to another location due to overbooking. Apparently, they had emailed us about this two months ago, but we think the ...
