... in the river, but we never saw anything untoward!!
After about an hour and a half downriver, the driver pulled into the rushes and lit the bbq, before long we were enjoying steak marinated in soy, worcester sauce, apple cider vinegar and olive oil, chicken with cherries and bacon and fresh bread which was heavenly and then JT, Hannes, Sam and Stefan all jumped into the river for a swim despite the rumours mentioned ...
... this was a little over the top and if he was too scared to shark dive he should have just said so.

It must have only been 30/40m out and was doing these big jumps for a good 5 minutes. We came back to Ouma late at night with our tales of Whales and went out for a birthday dinner at a local restaurant looking over the sea. All in all it was a pretty swell birthday for mr Tim! Bring on the next adventure! ...
