Pa Penguins - Lots of them on Boulders Beach near Simons Town.
A beachfull to be precise and the elevated boardwalk allowed us to come up to them but not to disturb them. Some came in from the ocean and went from a slide on their bellies to being upright and then waddling off in their inimitable way. Some seem to feel the wind's sharpness and were curled up together- they mate for life. Some prospective mums sat on their eggs and played the waiting game while other young ones, were busy discarding their down- like- feathers of their childhood before being allowed into the water. They need to develop their waterproof coating and this takes about 20 days. There was also a pair, he is upright and proud and he goes for his chosen one in what can only be described at a little bit of hanky panky. I felt like a voyeur until I saw a curious penguin who was standing by, as if waiting for the invitation to join in or just enjoying that sexual kick. They were "engaging" in every way.
