Admiralty House

Admiralty House, Simon’s Town. I took this on the way back from the marathon a couple of weeks ago. It is very special to me because my wife and I shot our wedding pics in the gardens here.

You can’t visit Cape Town without a visit to the Penguins in Simon’s Town. The tourists live them, but I also has a friend whose house is in the beach and they regularily have penguins vising their house and nesting in their lounge!
They are really cute, but they stink as well!

Was that a penguin I saw?

You don’t see penguins on the main road. Or do you? Boulders Beach in Simonstown is home to a colony of African penguins.  But Simonstown Main Road is not home to a colony of African penguins. So, this morning  I was surprised to cycle past the golf course and see two penguins wondering down the side of the road.


As soon as they say me they ducked into the bushes, so this is all I managed to shoot with my happy-snappy (no I don’t take my SLR when I cycle). While they look really cute, they don’t smell all that great…
