I was thrilled to discover there there are several colonies of tropical penguins close to Cape Town, so naturally Chris and I had to take a day trip out to see them. We went to the most famous place, Boulder Beach (just past Simon's Bay, about an hour's ride from Cape Town) and spent the morning ogling the funny birds. Completely unafraid of humans, they nested beneath boulders, close to fences, and right under the tourist boardwalk.
I was so excited!
Boulder Beach is aptly named for the extraordinary boulders
The penguins were dozing in the morning sun
Most of the penguins were nesting, still a few weeks away from hatching though
Goodbye for now, penguins!
Danalynn & Chris
