Day 15 - Seals & penguins

We went on a day trip to Cape Peninsula.

The first stop was Hout Bay - a little fishing village with a small island covered with seals nearby (called, quite surprisingly, Seal Island). Seals are fat and lazy, but cute.

We then proceeded to Simons Town, a Victorian seaside village on the False Bay (eastern part of the peninsula), but didn't stay there long. Note to myself - go back when the weather is good. Instead, we went straight to Boulder's beach that hosts a small (the only??) colony of African Jackass Penguin in South Africa.

If I understood the guide correctly, the penguins only came there in the 1980s. I could only imagine the feelings of a local resident when one nice morning he comes out of his beachfront house in Africa and sees a penguin.

Penguins are hillarious - and they are tiny. They don't really look like birds - more like bizzare midget creatures. A seagull has been bothering them while we were there as it was bigger than most of them.

Our next stop was the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, a part of Cape Floral Region which has recently been added to the list of World Heritage Sites by Unesco. Going back there for sure - next time with a tripod.

We finally made it to the end of the continent, Cape Point, in the early afternoon. It was drizzling from time to time, but to make up for the cloudy weather we got to play with a rainbow.
