Piraeus Port

In my last post, I posted some pics of the Aegean sea from the Ferry to Aegina. Here are two pics of the port, the first of the actual port where the boats dock, and the second is of the seafront apartment buildings just outside the port. I am sure that you have a fantastic view from those apartments, although it looks a little crowded.

Langebaan at sunset

Yesterday I posted a photo of Langebaan lagoon on a really calm¬†morning. Although it was freezing cold, the still weather continued throughout the day, and we did not have any wind at all. We were also blessed with a glorious sunset, so I grabbed my camera (this time the SLR), and rushed down to the water’s edge to grab a shot or two.

Here are some of the results.

Diving at the Cape Town Aquarium

Ragged Tooth Shark

Today, my brother and his wife arranged to go scuba diving in the shark tank at Cape Town Aquarium. I don’t have a scuba certificate, so I was unable to dive, but I went along with my camera, and I managed to get a couple of nice shots in. If you have some free time, pop down to the Aquarium, the exhibits are remarkable, and they have a fantastic selection of marine life, and plenty of activities for both little and big people.

By the way, even though the sharks look (and are) very scary, last year only 9 people worldwide got killed by sharks.

Warning, we got there at 9am and it was empty. But by 10:30am, the queue was outside the door and around the corner, so best you get there early. Full details and costs etc are here.
