A penguin takes a dive

posted by Paul
The weather wasn't too great today. Yesterday was very hot but today was overcast and extremely windy. It was a good day to sleep in a little late - the week and last night's Johnny Clegg concert caught up with us so we slept until just before 11am. Terrible, I know. :)

So, today I'm posting a series of photos, taken a couple of days ago, of one poor penguin at Boulders in Simon's Town. The second wave caught him a little by surprise and he vanished, tumbling beneath the wave.

But ultimately was he okay?? Interesting series of shots that tell the story.

Such a little guy and such a big wave.

And have a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.

Stunning photos! Our Cape is alive. These penguins have an oversupply of icecream.
