Cape of Good Hope

On one of our perfect weather days in Cape Town, we drove out to the Cape of Good Hope.  The drive alone was gorgeous.  There are many sights to see from rocky mountain tops to beaches and open sea.  The colors are stunning from the greens in the vegetation to the blues in the water.  We took lots of pictures and enjoyed walking around and exploring.  One of my favorite parts of the day was seeing the African penguins!

A view on our drive

There are many wild ostriches at the Cape.  It was incredible to be so
close in proximity to them.

cliffs above Cape Point.  

A view from the hike up to the top.  

Near the lighthouse at the top is this
sign showing locations in all directions.  

It was amazing to stand up top and feel the wind and take
in such incredible views in every direction.  

On our drive back down, we passed a beautiful town.  I absolutely loved the colors in this view.  

My absolute favorite animal.  I never thought I'd see African penguins.
It was so neat to see them in their natural habitat.  

We were able to get very
close to the penguins.
