Adventure to the Coast

Saturday, June 6, 2009

Wow! Today was day filled with action and adventure. We left the hotel at 6:20 a.m. and took a 2 hour drive to the tip of the African continent. When we reached our destination, our grouped was briefed about today's activity, the shark dive. After our brief, we traveled out to sea. The water was a little choppy and made some of our party "sea sick". Overall, the experience was thrilling; the sharks came so close to the diving cage and even bumped it. It was an once in a lifetime experience that we will never forget.

After we returned to land and docked the boat, we had lunch and did a little souvenir shopping. After lunch and shopping, our group took the scenic route back to Cape Town. The mountains and coastline were so beautiful. On our drive back, we even saw whales. This was extremely fortunate considering it is not the height of whale season. It was a perfect photo opportunity.

We concluded our day with a African drum circle and traditional African dinner at a local home. The drum circle was very fun and all members of the group participated in making beautiful music. During the drum circle several members of our party participated in an African dance. The instructor did a great job of teaching the dance to our group. After the drum circle and dance, we ate a delicious African dinner. The meal consisted of three courses and was very filling. On the ride home nearly everyone fell asleep after our adventurous day. Tomorrow we will finish our activities in Cape Town and travel to Johannesburg.
