A Cold & Windy Day at Boulders Beach

Page_1

We went to Cape Town for a week a little while ago. The weather was lovely for Cape Town: we had one entire day when gale-force winds weren’t howling under cantankerous skies.

We went to see the penguins at Boulders Beach, which, by law, all tourists visiting Cape Town are required to do.

I was dismayed to learn that the penguins there are known as Jackasses, because they make a noise like a braying beast of burden. Humans can be very cruel when it comes to the naming of species.
