We took an action packed tour to Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope, the most South Western point in Africa. There were several stops along the way including a visit to the Boulders. Here is where the Africa Jackass penguins hang out. They’re making a comeback but are still on the endangered species list. If you hear them, you understand why they were named “jack ass”. Too funny!
South Africans love their picnics so we enjoyed a snack with a view from Chapman’s Peak Road which is absolutely beautiful and definitely worth doing. Lunch was at Cape Point nature reserve.
We hiked to a lighthouse and learned a lot about the history of the Cape. Hundreds of ships have been destroyed there. The Atlantic Ocean is colder in summer due to prevailing winds and melting ice in Antarctica. A couple of brave souls took a dip but 14 degrees is too cold for this Canuck!
Back in town we got some groceries for dinner and stopped at the wine store where I got to taste more wine. I don’t need to buy any. The tastes I get every night are enough for me 😉
