Cape Town - day 3 and 4

I am still busy recapping on me and The Lil' Miss lovely Cape Town break. On Saturday morning we headed to the Biscuit Mill market - I am keeping those yummy pictures for tomorrow in keeping with my Friday market day posts. After Miss Madelein had a nap, we headed out for one of South Africa's most famous scenic drives - Chapman's peak road and to Simon's Town.

We drove around towards Cape point but did not stop as we had two sleeping princesses in the car. But at Simon's Town we stopped to visit some very special birds. At Boulders beach you find a colony of African Penguins and up to a few moths ago it was the only place in the world where you could swim with wild penguins. Due to a decline in the colony, this has now been stopped. But we still went to see the little gentlemen(and ladies) in cloaks.

There is an extensive set of walkways to keep penguins (and people) safe and apart.

After our visit there we took two ever impatient girls to play on the beach.

The little mermaid, once again.

This is the cutest little beach - only one house right on the beach - imagine living there.

Winell doing her god motherly duties - it is the Atlantic ocean and freaking ice cold.

On Sunday morning we went for a quick beach play at Llandudno before we headed for breakfast buffet (including oysters) on Houtbay beach.
