Last week we took a week off with Red and the Christian Surfers interns to visit Coffee Bay in Transkei. It’s about a twelve hour drive through the “Wild Coast” from Jeffrey’s Bay. This part of South Africa is regarded as “real Africa” compared to the other parts we have visited so far – people still live in tiny villages run by chiefs and they mostly make a living by fishing or farming. The water was about 78 degrees, so even Amanda caught a few waves despite multiple rumors that it was very sharky! From surfing and doing art with the local kids to hiking to “Hole in the Wall,” we had an incredible time in this wild place.
