It is not just penguins that you see on Boulders Beach in Simonstown. The beach has hundreds of Dassies, which look like a mixture between a cute squirrel and a rat.
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!
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…
Most of the coast of False Bay all the way from Simonstown to Cape Point consists of these stoney beaches. While you can’t really swin here, it provides a wonderful view when out walking or cycling. Further out are excellent fishing and diving spots.
