          You pay your money. You take your chances. Whale were impressive, but we didn't actually get to see a whole lot of them at once.

          Those National Geographic shots are sure hard to get.

          Kayaked in the sea with the hope of seeing whales. Unfortunately didn't see any. But we did see sea lions swimming right past us and penguins swimming and diving.

          Was told before the trip that we may see great white sharks but it was unlikely they would attack us as they tend to go for seals.

          Later explored the little shops that the town offered. Lovely little town with lots of nice places to eat and whale watch.

          ... wetsuit and a mask. You don't even need a snorkel since you can stand on the bottom of the cage. We went with Shark Lady Adventures because Deanne liked the name. Turns out, she is one of the first to open this type of business in nearby Gansbaai (pr. HANS bye). They were a top notch organization and I can highly recommend them.

          We got up early on dive day and drove 45 minutes or so to Gansbaai ...

          ... Town. It was really interesting but of course also very sad. The building now housing the museum was home to the majority of Cape Town's slaves back in the 17th/18th century when slaves were used to build the city. The were kept in appalling conditions and literally locked up at night to prevent any attempts at arson. Sunday was a gorgeous day so I headed down to the beach at luxurious Camps Bay for lunch on the strip and a bit of sun worshipping. No signs of winter just yet!

          This past weekend was filled with beautiful new sights, wine, sharks, and plenty of laughs. Friday, Corey, Tim, Megan and myself played soccer with some teenage boys that were actually pretty good! It was a nice little break to split up our day and it was a pretty good workout. I hope we are able to play with more kids again before we leave. Tim looked like he was going to pass out afterwards though. After working in Manenburg for a few hours, we decided to take a taxi back down to ...

We were just deciding to paddle back, when right next to us the water got all bubbly and out of nowhere a baby calf came up to breathe, swam around the kayak, bumped in to one and left again. Not quite sure if we should have said, wow that was amazing, or let’s get out of here, but the memories stayed with us until now.

          It was a great experience, some might say, ...
