Going through many of the beach towns (Simon’s Town, etc) on False Bay. You can see the european influence and some of the houses were amazing! Feels meditterean. Once we reached Cape Point we made the trek up for some outstanding views – it is the southeast corner of the Cape Peninsula, which is a mountainous and very scenic. It north-south for about thirty kilometres at the extreme southwestern tip of the African continent in the Republic of South Africa. After we stopped at Boulders Beach to check out the penguins. Boulders Beach is a sheltered beach made up of inlets between granite bouldersthat house a colony of African Penguins. All the trees down by boulders beach grow at about a 45 to 60 degree angle due to the wind. When you first see them you think, did I smoke something funny?

Today we went great white shark cage diving. We got up at 5 am to make the trek out to Gansbaai. Had our briefing, boarded the boat and put on some super thick wet suits. I asked our marine biologist if I happen to shat in my suit if it would be ok…because these

sharks are BIG. I went in once, 5 minutes was enough for me but Ryan went twice and spent a total of 30 minutes in the water. The water is super cold and murkey – you can almost see more on top of the boat. We saw 11 sharks in total and the biggest was 3.5 metres. At one point one of the sharks bite right onto the cage, it was crazy. Asides from that, they do seem like calm, curious, and inquisitive creatures….

Hoping to get out to Robben Island and Table Mountain in the next few days..stay tuned.
