Most of the group arrived late last night via flights from Spokane to Atlanta to Johannesburg to Port Elizabeth. The 4am wake up was a little rough to head out fishing with Big John Charters in Port Elizabeth. What a day!

We saw the sun rise, caught a variety of Indian Ocean fish, saw a pod of dolphins, the colony of penguins that call St. Croix Island home and then topped it off with 2 battles with massive Raggy Sharks on the reef.

After cleaning up, we took the 2 hour ride to our home, The Golf Lodge B&B, for the next few days in Alexandria.  We will be helping install the computer lab at J&J Orphanage tomorrow.  The home owners, Jennifer and Brent, just prepped us for what to expect with the kids.  I think we will make them smile!

What an amazing experience thus far and we look forward to meeting the children tomorrow.
