    ... were anticipated.

    After a short boat ride, in quite choppy seas (the wind had picked up during our drive to Gansbaai), the anchor was set, the tourist cage lowered into the water, and the crew began chumming for sharks (chum consisting of ground up fish stuff, mixed with water, and pumped into the sea around the boat). One of the crew also loaded up a decoy with fish heads ad began tossing it into the water, to lure the sharks closer to the boat, while 8 ...

    ... came equipped with its very own braai. We immediately headed out to the grocery store to pick up some steaks to barbecue over the woodsmoke grill. When we returned, we poured ourselves each a nice big glass of red wine and settled in on our veranda to watch the ocean.
