When my family decided to want to travel to South Africa a few months ago and I was asked to tag along I had one special request only: to see the penguins at Boulders Beach. I had seen photos from friends who had travelled there and it looked like the most surreal thing ever…penguins living on a beach?!
You know when you want to do or see something and then when you actually get to experience it it’s not as extraordinary or special as you thought (this happens to me all the time)? Well, this was the exact opposite of that. I mean, South Africa was insanely beautiful but I would travel back just to see those small penguins. These little guys have now replaced the background photo of my husband and I on my iPhone, that’s how much I love them.
I totally recommend a drive down to Boulders Beach, which is only about an hours drive from Cape Town (did that rhyme?). Wishing I could have taken one little guy home with me but I’m sure they enjoy sleeping on warm sand more than splashing around in cold rain puddles in windy Edinburgh.
