The Mother City

The four of us took off for Cape Town at 7am on Saturday, and a 2-hour flight later we were in the Mother City. Saturday was a relaxing day for us, as we were all tired and Ben was under the weather. So we had a big Mexican lunch (it wasn't half bad), and watched the two quarterfinals.

Today we split up, Ben and Bill went shark diving (there was only room in the group for 2), while Ron and I headed down to Cape Point/Cape of Good Hope, which is the southwestern-most point on the African continent.

Ben and Bill said they enjoyed themselves, but the water was quite cold. They were able to see two sharks, and returned with all limbs attached. Ron and I had a great day driving down to Cape Point, a little over an hour south of Cape Town. Stopped off for a seafood lunch on our way there. It really was picturesque and the weather today was magnificent.
