To some people it is a surprising fact that there are penguin colonies in Africa. That’s reason enough to see these sympathic animals. In the 1980s, the african penguin (or jackass penguin, because of the sound they make) was an extremeley endangered species. Today, the population has risen again to a stable level, but preservation measures are still necessary. You can see the penguins from several places at Boulders Beach. Boulders Beach is a sheltered beach made up of inlets between granite boulders, from which the name originated. It is located in the Cape Peninsula, near Simon’s Town towards Cape Point, near Cape Town in the Western Cape province of South Africa. It is also commonly known as Boulders Bay
I could have danced all night
and still have begged for more.
I could have spread my wings
and done a thousand things
I’ve never done before.
I’ll never know what made it so exciting;
Why all at once my heart took flight.
I only know when he
began to dance with me
I could have danced,
danced, danced all night!
