Cape Peninsula

January 19th

We spent the day driving around the Cape Peninsula.  Our first stop was The Boulders which is between Simon's Cove and Cape Town.  Boulders has a thriving colony of more than 3000 African Penuins.

Posing for the camera...

Penguins in love...

Next we headed out to Cape of Good Hope which is at the southern most point of the peninsula.  Here we climbed to the lighthouse at the top of the mountain.

Then, we headed to the Cape Point Ostrich Farm.  Here more than 40 pairs of ostrich are bred and each "couple' have their own private outdoor suite. 

We stopped for a very late lunch (or early dinner) in Muizenberg at St. James Pool.  This town was the country's premier holiday retreat in the 19th century.

Hi Shopaholic - love your name! The animals here are so cute!!

Justin - this is a trip of a lifetime for us!

Leesa - You would feel at home at the beaches here! However, I feel that the ocean is much colder here than California!
