    Found* Penguins!

    May 15, 2016 in South Africa ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Hi everyone! Hope you're having a great weekend. I'm sure our regular readers will have noticed the delayed updates lately, but that's because we've been keeping busy having an excellent time in Cape Town! The city itself is beautiful, the cityside ocean and cliffs recalling San Francisco or Malibu. Everyone has been extremely friendly, we haven't had any concerns about safety, and in general the experience in the city has been amazing. Nick can see why Rachel loved it here :)

    Now, about today's title.... this afternoon we went to Boulders Beach in Simon's Town, otherwise known as a major breeding colony for African penguins! Nick had never seen such a large number up close (or in the wild), and it was such fun to watch them swim, fish, and generally waddle along cutely. Some pictures below!

    To round out our Sunday, we spent the morning hiking on the Cape of Good Hope, snapping some pictures at the historic lighthouse on Cape Point, and eating a fine lunch of fish and chips. Cheers!
