      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.

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

I turned, so that Jackie could get the binoculars out of the rucksack on my back, only to see a 2nd whale breach, but this time into a back flop with both it's flippers in the air. This was amazing. We found a handy rock and sat down to watch a whale pass close to shore, grazing on the ...

      ... nowadays how they actually mate

    • The worldwide shark population is estimated less than 5000 (not funny, sad!)
    • For the business people:
      • A death shark’s worth... about 2,000$ max.
      • A living shark’s worth... about 2,000,000$ of ecotourism (funny and true and good!)
    • Sharks are probably among the least dangerous animals on earth
      • 5-10 kills from sharks a year all ...

      ... on the mainland in Southern Africa. The variety that live here are the African Penguins and they have been here since 1982, even though the area was well-populated with humans when they arrived. Then there were only 2 breeding pairs and now there are about 2200 penguins. This variety is considered an endangered species.
