Vacation!!!! Garden Route

Last week, the American volunteers of Beautiful Gate and one of our friends from Mission Aviation Fellowship went on vacation.  It was a great week with all kinds of new experiences.  We went to the coast of South Africa along the garden route.

I saw the Indian Ocean for the first time!

It was such a beautiful area.  A wonderful vacation.  We also got to go swimming with seals, don’t have  pictures of that yet, but I might be able to amend this later when I do.  Now I’m going to leave you with this, a beautiful view of part of the garden route.
