Little Penguins

And they really are busy, tiny, cute creatures.  Boulder’s Beach, part of the Table Mountain National Park is home to a colony of South African penguins.  Safe from predators and sheltered from the fierce winds that as sailors we know sweep along the coast, the penguins are the only variety to breed here.  It’s a stone’s throw from Simon’s Town and about a ten minute walk from the marina at FBYC

The photos tell the sweet tale of nesting, moulting, swimming and togetherness.

They nest just wherever they feel comfortable.

And December is the moulting season

A thoroughly enjoyable time with the locals!
