September-October 2002

If it were not for Belinda Smith, this trip to South Africa would not have happened. Belinda asked me to help as advisor and head judge for the competition "Battle Of The Boots 2002".
With one of the largest line dance competitor turnouts in the world this year (240 individual competitors, 24 teams, 20 choreography entries and a separate children's competition, this turned out to be a spectacular success. Thanks, Belinda!

Cape Lighthouse
The end of the world -- the lighthouse at the Cape Of Good Hope, southernmost point in Africa. A large pod of right whales were cavorting just below the cliffs as we looked down from the lighthouse.
