The winds blow to the north, as if pushing the docking ships out of the harbor. A few meters above the ship roars a helicopter carrying the captains expected to dock the ship into Durban Harbor. Quite interesting, is the fact that foreign pilots are not allowed to dock in the vessels; you see the horizon of the approaching port, nurse down your sea sickness, curl back and vacate the cabin for the tough guys of Durban Port to guide the ship in. The morning is bright, the shiny sand seem to be calling, with such an allure you have to muster inner strengths to say no, and turn left through the gate to the mighty uShaka Marine Park. This park is Life, at least where the marine ecosystem is concerned.
