DOG SLEDDING & SNOW SHOEING - ANGLIN LAKE - CANADA

Dog sledding & snow shoeing at Anglin Lake, Canada

all seasons in one day 6 °C

large_IMG_4784-001.jpg
My best friend and I drove up to Anglin Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada for a day of dog sledding & snow shoeing ... 2 things which I've been wanting to cross off my bucket list for awhile! We live in Saskatoon, so it was only about 2.5hrs drive north to Anglin Lake. It is located about 65km north of Prince Albert.
This is a photo of the snow/ice covered lake.
large_IMG_4645-001.jpg
It was only $50 for a 1hr dog sled run, with complimentary snow shoe rental which we could use before or after the dog sledding. We chose to go snow shoeing first, as we had arrived about 1.5hrs early just in case the roads were bad ... but they were fine.
Here we are all geared up and ready to go. It was +6C this day in January, if you can believe it! No worries of getting cold thats for sure!

The snow was really deep ... up to our knees in some places. We were snow shoeing virgins, lol, neither of us has done this before and were under the assumption that snow shoes allowed you to walk on top of the snow! But with snow this deep you still sink in quite a bit, making for a good workout!

The dogs were SO EXCITED! And LOUD! So much barking & excited whining ... they just wanted to GO! LOL! In the next sequence of photos, watch the lead dog! She was like a bucking horse, so eager to go!!

large_IMG_4758-001.jpg
It had been really windy the previous day and there were a few fallen trees that we either had to go over slowly, or stop, get off the sled, and help move them off the trail.

CAPE PENINSULA, SOUTH AFRICA

African Penguins, ostriches, scenic coastline, Cape of Good Hope, lighthouse, and Table Mountain cable car! So much to do & see on the peninsula!

sunny 20 °C

I spent a few days in the Cape Peninsula (the area from Cape Town, south all the way to the Cape of Good Hope). One morning I took the train from Simonstown up to Cape Town. It took about an hour and cost $2 Canadian! Steal of a deal compared to a taxi which would've cost $46 Canadian. And very scenic as it follows the coastline for quite a ways before cutting inland. If you travel the way the locals do, you can save alot of money! From the train station in Cape Town I took a cab up to Table Mountain to take the cable car to the top.
large_IMG_0983-001.jpg
But it was too windy so the cable car was closed :( And here I thought I had picked a good day cuz it was sunny and clear, with barely a breeze, but at the top of the mountain that breeze was wind. I stuck around for 2hrs waiting for the wind to die down (no point in heading back to Simonstown just yet, I came all this way, I wanted to see something!). This was the view from the lower cable station.
large_IMG_0956-001.jpg
While waiting there were a few gift shops to look through, a place to grab a cheap lunch (chicken & mushroom pie for $2.25 Canadian), an ice cream booth, etc. After the 2hr wait I was in luck! The wind died down and they opened the gates. It cost $205 Rand ($26 Canadian). It only took 4min to ascend 1065m (3195ft)! It rotated 360 degrees as it rose, so no matter where u stand u get a good view, just make sure to grab a spot by a window ... unless your scared of heights, its really high!
large_IMG_0984-001.jpg
Follow the cables ... aaaaaaall the waaaaaay down! Thats how high 1065m is! If the cables look nearly vertical to you, thats because they are! By far the steepest cable car I've ever been on!
large_IMG_0993-001.jpg
Once at the top, it was FREEZING cold!! The sign at the lower cable station said it was +3C at the top, but with the windchill it was below freezing! Bring a jacket for sure! I had a hoodie & jacket, but could have also used a toque & gloves ... my fingers were freezing from taking photos. There were many trails to follow with signage explaining the flora, history, etc. I only stayed up there about 20min or so, cuz it was THAT cold & windy. Heres some photos I managed to get of the various views from the top.

One brave little birdie in the cold!
large_IMG_0978-001.jpg
The next day I made the mistake of going on a Peninsula Tour. I should've just rented a car, or even a taxi for the day. The tour was a waste of time, especially if you're a photographer. They advertized a huge list of places to be visited on the tour, but what they didnt mention is that you dont actually stop at them, you just drive by at high speeds as your guide says "Oh and that was an ostrich farm", or "Oh that back there was Long Beach", etc. We made a few, very brief stops, but thats about it. So I didnt take too many photos, as there werent very many photo ops ... unless blurry pictures taken through the vehicle's window at high speeds is your kind of photography.

We made a 5min stop at Camps Bay Beach. Once we were back in the van and on the road again our guide decided to mention that the mountains in the background were the 12 Apostles. Would've been nice to know that while looking at them.
large_IMG_0995-001.jpg
Next up was Hout Bay. We actually stopped here for an hour ... for an optional boat cruise out to Seal Island. This was an extra cost. I chose not to, since Seal Island is where my shark boat anchored offshore from a few days prior. So I wasted an hour looking at the many souvenir stands, and had some toast & coffee at a nearby restaurant.
large_IMG_0999-001.jpg
Another 5min stop at a lookout point overlooking Hout Bay.
large_IMG_1004-001.jpg
Then we drove along the very scenic Chapman's Peak Drive. It was absolutely gorgeous ... but we didnt stop even once to take photos anywhere of it! Ugh! So this is a 'drive by shooting' of the twisty turny road that clung to the mountainside.
large_IMG_1009-001.jpg
We started to see some wildlife the closer we got to the tip of the peninsula. We actually stopped for 2 bontebok (a type of antelope I never knew existed), 7 ostriches, 5 eland, and an itty bitty tortoise on the road.

Bontebok ... crappy photo I know, but they were far away. I only bothered to take a photo cuz I've never heard of, nor seen them before.

Ostrich on the road!

Eland, the largest of all antelope.
large_IMG_1080-001.jpg
large_IMG_1088-001.jpg
Then we stopped at the Cape of Good Hope ... The south-western most point of the African continent. There was really nothing there but a sign ... and at least 50 ppl lined up to take a photo with it. I tried uploading the photo, but it wont post :(

We then had lunch at the very expensive Two Oceans restaurant at the lighthouse at the tip of the peninsula. The menu was mostly seafood & meat, so I got a milkshake and headed to the snack shop next door for cheap pizza, lol! Thats a backpacker's budget for ya! I'm glad I did though, cuz while everyone else was wasting their time waiting for their expensive meals, I took the funicular (like a cable car on a train track) up to the lighthouse at Cape Point. Only $6 Canadian, or you can walk the whole way up for free. If I'd had more time I would've. By the time they were all done eating, they only had about 10min to look around, whereas I had a whole hour. This is the view from the restaurant.
large_IMG_1065-001.jpg
The funicular only takes you this far ... then you have no choice but to climb those steps to get to the very top.
large_IMG_1049-001.jpg
large_IMG_1060-001.jpg
The sign at Cape Point, right before you start climbing the stairs. There were also 'Beware of Baboon' signs, but I didnt see any baboons.

large_IMG_1074-001.jpg
View of the cliffs. This is where the Indian & Atlantic Oceans meet! Very turbulent waters!
large_IMG_1056-001.jpg

The last stop on the tour was my fave ... Boulders Beach, home of the African Penguin!! Again, we only had about 10min here, which is most definitely not enough, so the following day, the last day of my whole trip, I walked 20min from my hotel in Simonstown to this beach, and spent the WHOLE day with the penguins :)
large_IMG_1090-001.jpg
It cost 45 Rand ($5.60 Canadian) to access Boulders Beach. They give you a ticket which also gets you into Foxy Beach, so be sure to hold onto it. Boulders Beach is where 99% of the penguins are. They can be founding nesting, swimming, sleeping, suntanning, etc. The African Penguin is a protected species so you have to stick to the boardwalks. Theres penguins all along the walk, but if you just walk straight to the very end of the boardwalk, thats where the majority of them will be!
large_IMG_0758-001.jpg
Beautiful Boulders Beach!

FALSE BAY, SOUTH AFRICA

Great White Sharks, Cape Fur Seals, 1000s of Spinner Dolphins, and Orca Whales!

overcast 18 °C

Heres my fave photo from this leg of my trip!!!!!
large_IMG_0654-002.jpg
After 3 nights in Swakopmund, Namibia, I flew back to South Africa. I landed in Cape Town at 7:30pm and took a prebooked shuttle (with Centurion Tours) 45 min south to Simonstown, where I stayed for 6 nights. I stayed at the Simonstown Quayside Hotel. It was located right on Jubilee Square (main area of the town with lots of shops & restaurants).
large_IMG_0949-001.jpg
My room looked over the harbor, main pier, and mountains.
large_IMG_0396-001.jpg
My first full day here rained. Actually it poured. Sideways. It was SO windy! But the next day was sunny/cloudy, albeit a tad chilly (only 10C). But the good news is, my shark diving tour with Apex Predators wasn't canceled! Woohoo! I prebooked my tour online, but if you'd rather book in person, the Apex Predators office is actually located in a 'mall' beside my hotel. Quite convenient. When choosing a shark diving operator, dont cheap out! The last thing you want when dealing with Great White Sharks, is a flimsy cage! I chose Apex Predators because the owner/operator & marine photographer extraordinaire, Chris Fallows, is known worldwide. Just google his name! If I remember correctly, it cost just under $200 Canadian (I was there in off-season though, it costs more in high season). My hotel was located at the pier where the dive boats departed, so I literally woke up, rolled outta bed, and walked to the end of the pier to meet the group of ppl who would be joining me :)
large_IMG_0418-001.jpg
The boat departed the Simonstown harbor at 7:45am. We left 1hr later than scheduled due to wind in the morning. This is the view from the boat looking back over Simonstown.
large_IMG_0421-001.jpg
We anchored just offshore from Seal Island ... basically a massive rock absolutely covered in Cape Fur Seals!
large_IMG_0449-001.jpg
Just look at all of them! Those arent rocks, those are ALL seals!!
large_IMG_0476-001.jpg
large_IMG_0472-001.jpg
large_IMG_0473-001.jpg
Then the cage went into the water, and the crew started chumming the water (throwing fish guts overboard to attract sharks).
large_IMG_0419-001.jpg
large_IMG_0464-001.jpg
The chum, aka shark bait.
large_IMG_0420-001.jpg
Chumming the water.
large_IMG_0458-001.jpg
And then we waited. And waited. And waited & waited & waited. The entire time the crew kept chucking fish bits overboard trying to attract a shark. In movies they make it seem like if you put even one toe in the water you will get eaten by a shark. But in reality, it takes forever. Eventually one Great White came relatively close to the boat cuz there was a dead seal floating nearby. But just as it was about to raise its head & massive jaws out of the water to eat the seal, (and I was ready with my camera zoomed in & focused on that dead seal), someone else stepped in front of me to take their own photo and I completely missed seeing the shark!!!!! By the time the person moved, all I got to see was the side of the shark :( So disappointed I coulda pushed that person overboard, lol! This is the most I saw of a Great White. (If you want to see incredible photos of Great Whites breaching, google Chris Fallows' name!)
large_IMG_0471-001.jpg
Mr Chris Fallows doing what he does best! And yes, I was very jealous of his lens!
large_IMG_0577-001.jpg
So I didnt actually bother getting into the cage in the freezing cold water (only 8C). No point in getting hypothermia if theres no sharks to see :( After 6hrs of nothing, we headed back to the harbor ... and guess what we saw along the way?!!!! NINE Orca Whales (aka Killer Whales)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!large_IMG_0614-001.jpg
large_IMG_0562-001.jpg
They were hunting a pod of 1000 Spinner Dolphins! Chris was driving our boat as fast as it could go, and we could barely keep up with them! But eventually he got us into the middle of the pod of dolphins! It was unreal ... jumping dolphins and frothing water as far as I could see in every direction! This was definitely a major highlight of my entire trip to Africa!!! (And worth all the money I paid to see sharks).
large_IMG_0692-001.jpg
Adorable baby Orca & its mama :) Notice ALL the dolphins in the background!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
large_IMG_0654-001.jpg
This one was no more than 1 meter from our boat when it surfaced!! I actually gasped cuz it was SO close to my face when it surfaced!
large_IMG_0566-001.jpg
large_IMG_0671-001.jpg
large_IMG_0672-001.jpg
large_IMG_0675-001.jpg
So all in all, even though I didnt get to see Great Whites, the Orcas and ridiculous amount of dolphins totally made up for it :)

NAMIB DESERT, NAMIBIA

Sand dunes, camel trekking, chameleons & many other desert critters

sunny 22 °C

At the southern edge of Swakopmund is Desert Xplorers. From there I rented a camel and went on a short trek into the desert. For $300 Namibian Dollars ($37 Canadian) I rode a camel for 45min in to the desert. (There were various options for shorter / longer treks too).

large_IMG_0148-001.jpg
large_IMG_0156-001.jpg
large_IMG_0160-001.jpg
If you've never rode a camel before, its definitely something to cross off your bucket list, but let me warn you, it'll be the most uncomfortable ride of your life!
large_IMG_0159-001.jpg
Another day I went on a 4x4 jeep safari, booked threw Living Desert Tours. I did the half day tour for $600 Namibian Dollars ($75 Canadian). My guide was Chris, who was fantastic, and an expert on all things desert-y.
large_IMG_9756.jpg
The Namib Desert is massive. Over 2000km long! A single dune can be up to 32km long & 980ft high!!!! I would have really loved to have gone to Sossuvlei (where those really, really big dunes are), but only having 3 days here, I only had time to visit the 'small' dunes of Dorob National Park (the outskirts of the Namib, between Swakopmund & Walvis Bay). If you've never seen sand dunes before, the 450ft tall dunes here are still incredibly impressive!!

I cant remember the name of this dune beetle, but it stands on its head in the early morning so that the dew runs down its back and into its mouth. Clever.

large_IMG_9586-001.jpg

large_IMG_9593-001.jpg
large_IMG_9596-001.jpg
Chris put a worm in his hand, and the chameleon climbed right in! A completely wild chameleon! We also got to see her change from light pink to dark grey right before our eyes! Amazing!
large_IMG_9607-001.jpg
large_IMG_9608-001.jpg
large_IMG_9612-001.jpg
Then Chris put a second worm in his other hand so we could watch her super long, super fast tongue in action!
large_IMG_9609-001.jpg
large_IMG_9604-001.jpg
Then he put the chameleon back on the sand, and placed another worm a few feet away, and we watched as she stalked her prey, lol.
large_IMG_9624-001.jpg
large_IMG_9636-001.jpg
large_IMG_9639-001.jpg
Her tongue was just too fast! i couldnt capture it!
large_IMG_9640-001.jpg
large_IMG_9644-001.jpg
large_IMG_9647-001.jpg
large_IMG_9678-001.jpg
Chris had an amazing way of finding creatures out in the desert! When you look at the the dunes, all you see is sand. But we'd be driving along in the jeep, and all of a sudden he'd slam it into park, jump out, run up a dune and start digging, and voila ... an adorable Palmetto Gecko!
large_IMG_9708-001.jpg
large_IMG_9707-001.jpg
large_IMG_9699-001.jpg
He even got his very own photoshoot :)
large_IMG_9720-001.jpg
large_IMG_9717-001.jpg
I absolutely love the patterns & ripples in the sand!
large_IMG_9740-001.jpg
We made a stop at the base of a 450ft sand dune, took off our shoes, and all ran to the top!

large_IMG_9790_CR2-001.jpg
large_IMG_9761.jpg
large_IMG_9797.jpg
Our last stop was atop a dune overlooking the Atlantic Ocean ... world's biggest beach thats for sure!!! You can barely see the road, but that is the hwy from Swakopmund to Walvis Bay, and onward to the airport. Quite a scenic drive with sand dunes & ocean the whole way!
large_IMG_9810.jpg
That's it for Namibia. Three days is most definitely not enough time. I only saw a tiny portion of this amazing country. Some day I hope to return and see the massive dunes at Sossuvlei, Fish Canyon, visit the Skeleton Coast, hike in Spitzkoppe, and go on safari in Etosha. Still so much to see & do there!

WALVIS BAY, NAMIBIA

Bay cruise with loads of Cape Fur Seals, huge pelicans and more flamingos!

sunny 23 °C

The owners of the apartment I rented for 3 days in Swakopmund helped me book a spot on a cruise departing from the harbor in Walvis Bay, out to Pelican Point. It was $500 Namibian Dollars ($62 Canadian), which included pickup in Swakopmund and roundtrip transfer to Walvis Bay, a 45min drive, the cruise, and a light lunch.
large_IMG_9917_CR2-001.jpg
Once on board we sailed towards Pelican Point. Along the way a Cape Fur Seal hopped on board! Turns out this seal was orphaned when he was young, so the employees took to feeding him so he wouldnt die. Now he makes an appearance every time they sail across the bay :)

The lighthouse at Pelican Point. It used to be located right at the tip of the sandy peninsula, but due to Namibia's ever-changing coastline of shifting sand dunes, the lighthouse is now 3km from the tip! Thats how much the coastline has changed! Crazy!
large_IMG_0014.jpg
There were 2,500 Cape Fur Seals at Pelican Point! I could hear them well before I could see them. They sounds like barking dogs ... imagine 2,500 barking dogs!!! They were everywhere on the beach & in the water! (But of course the 1 photo I took of the whole beach full of seals won't upload).
They were quite curious and would come right up to the boat, peek their heads out of the water at us, then dive back down.
