Penguin Selfies!

Today was supposed to be a hike up Table Mountain, but unfortunately the weather was not cooperative. Instead, we extended our plans for the Cape Pennisula to fit the rest of our day. 

We visited the Cape of Good Hope. Our safari began with viewings of ostriches and elands in Table Mountains National Park. The cape is the land of two oceans, with the Indian and Atlantic oceans meeting. We hiked up the moutains around the area, and a few of our number proved pretty fearless. Kyle, Coleson, and Alexis got super close to the edge. 

Mountain hiking was followed by a drive to Simon Town for lunch at a restaurant on the beach, where we watched penguins waddle across the beach and itched to pick up our cameras. After a delicious and much needed lunch at Seaforth Restaurant, we viewed African penguins on the beach and the theme of the day was penguin selfies! Beat that! Here's a just a sample of the penguin selfie phenomenon
