Slow travel is the best travel!
Today’s tour was exceptional. It consisted of spending the entire day exploring places all across the Southern Peninsula. This gave us time to enjoy so much at a very leisurely pace. Whilst tour busses whizzed by, we dipped our feet in the Atlantic.
We hugged the coastline using the coast road as it winds slowly through lazy suburbs with quaint names like Fish Hoek, Kalk Bay, St James and Glencairn until we entered the gates of the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve and stood on the edge of the world on the extreme southwesterly outcrop of Africa.
We visited the renowned Boulders Penguin Colony in Simons Town where we learnt about the unique and endangered land-based colony of African Penguins. This colony is one of only a few in the world and we were able to get close enough to observe and photograph these curious and entertaining birds.
On our way back to the Winelands we stopped for a long late lucn and wine tasting at Cape Point Vineyards.
Thanks for a wonderful day.
