Before I continue with our visit to Ushaka Marine World, I have something for you guys. It's nothing big, just a little contest for something from South Africa.
All I need you to do is name the Big Five animals of Africa. I don't care if you have to google or not, it doesn't matter to me, I just want you to name them and you will be entered into the drawing for a genuine African Wildlife fridge magnet handmade in Tshwane, South Africa. I brought it with me from South Africa, so if you're interested, just leave me a comment with your name, email or blog where I can contact you and the list of the Big Five. It's open to US and Canada!
Let's go back to Ushaka Marine World, I have some great photos to share with you including one that is mine and Curt's favorite....this purple fish, it's just beautiful.
No clue what it's called, I forgot to check the name so if anyone knows what it is, I would love to find out.
All the kids listening to one of the aquarium staff explain about the little sharks in the tank
This turtle makes me laugh, I can't look at her without hearing that voice from Finding Nemo "DUDE" lol
Love the jellyfish
Ok now the seal show LOL This guy above was the cop
This guy was the prisoner who escaped, he then stole the hate from the cop while he was sleeping and took off running. The cop came out with the seal and they were looking for the prisoner which made his way to the crowd and then took the hate off and dropped it off on an unsuspecting audience member...........yeah, you know where this is going LOL
I was sitting there minding my own business and next thing I know I have the cop yell out "HEY YOU" and call me towards him. CRUD was my first thought, I didn't want to go but everyone pushed me towards him, I could hear Curtis cackling in the background with the camera in hand LOL
I just stood there not knowing what the heck was happening, he accused me of stealing his hat LOL
Then he asked me what I had to say for myself and put the microphone to my mouth and before I could say a word, this loud Yodeling comes on the speakers LOL I about died LOL
He took me over to the wanted poster and told me that it was me, of course it wasn't, it was the guy in the orange suit LOL
And then it ended with him asking me if I like Sushi and I said yes, so he reached into his fanny pack LOL and gave me a little candy bar and sent me on my way....OH after he removed his hat from my head LOL
The seal show ended and it was time for us to head back to Scottburgh, leaving behind this want to come back again and spend more time exploring the Ushaka Marine World.
Dylan and Nicholas
Heading out, they have this great little strip mall with all sorts of great shops and restaurants etc.
The next morning was time to return back to Johannesburg but it was also Curt's birthday. The night before we had talked to the staff at the restaurant about singing Happy Birthday to him etc. He had NO idea what was coming and his reaction was priceless LOL
He looked up at me and said "why didn't you tell me?" LOL Well because if I had, he would have found a way to skip breakfast LOL
We even got free champagne....
My sister in law Lilian
My dad and stepmom
And with that, it's goodbye Scottburgh and goodbye Durban. I will DEFINITELY be returning next time I'm in South Africa.
