... obviously invaded their territory, they were letting us know it. As a result, any ideas of a relaxing swim from the back of the boat were extinguished. It didn't seem wise to go jumping into shark infested waters. With that, all there was to do was await customs to clear us in and take in the view, before inflating the dinghy and heading for lunch on Home Island, a three mile dash across the very choppy lagoon, dodging coral heads the whole way.

And Nick, despite us saying "Nick, please let's go. Nick please back up. We don't like this." He sat there. UGH! I couldn't believe it.

... short. On the drive home, we stopped at the famous Boulders Beach, were a colony of African penguins live. It's definitely bizarre to see penguins hanging out on the beach! We snapped a few pictures, then made our way to Fish Hoek, where we took an hour or so to relax on the beach, and dip our toes in the very very cold water.
