Our Little Corner of the World...on Tour in South Africa!!!




On our second day with our tour guide Michael,
we headed out to Boulders Penguin Colony...


Penguins???
In Africa???
I thought they were in the Antarctic!!!


Walking out to the habitat we passed these gorgeous flowers...
You know I can't pass up a gorgeous flower!


These little "Quonset huts" are little huts for the Penguins to sleep in!


This mom and baby were some of the first that we saw...


This little guy was checking us out as we were checking him out!!!


"Let's dance!!!"


The majority of the Penguins hang out at the end of the boardwalk in Boulders.


If you look carefully...you'll see that several of these were sitting on nests...


This boardwalk was constructed to protect the Penguins...


 Another mom and her baby...


 The South African coastline is quite spectacular.


So what do you do at the end of another great day in South Africa?
 Why...visit another South African winery of course!!!


Groot Constantia is the oldest winery in South Africa...
even Napolean drank wines from this winery!


After 330 years, I guess they've got this winemaking down!!!


Empty glasses...must have been good!!!

  2. I would have never guessed there were penguins in SA. I like the boardwalk idea, it keeps the crazies away from the fragile environment, which is stunning.

    1. That's why they built the boardwalk...so many people were visiting and not paying attention to the signs...as people so often don't! It worked well...we were close enough, but not disturbing them.
