Discover Scuba  - 23 November 2002

Amanda and I are actively involved with one of the houses, House 5, of the local Children's Home. From time to time we take a few deserving kids on a Discover Scuba to give them a glimpse of the wonders of the underwater world.

One of the rules of the Home is that a child must leave at the end of he year during which he turns 18. As Henri and Thabo turned 18 in 2002 I decided to take them as a sort of a farewell gift. We also used the opportunity to complete Amanda's last water skills for her dive master certification.

Although the weather was not ideal, everyone had fun.
