Photos included at last

Hello my dears, hope you are all well.
I'm still in Cape Town and have had a good old nose around. Went to the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens which are very beautiful and are surrounded by the mountains which they sort of blend into.
I then went to the World of Birds. I must admit I thought it was going to be a very tacky effort with a few scruffy chickens but it turned out to contain all sorts of weird, ugly, enormous and beautiful birds including my faves - owls, plus eagles, flamingos, ducks, cranes and all sorts of other peculiarities.
I know, it's cheap putting up a parrot picture but they are very photogenic. Here's a less fortunate individual having a bad hair day... (no, it's not me).
The other day I left Cape Town with two friends and headed off to Simon's Town to inspect the penguins which are just adorable and we spent the whole afternoon with them on the beach. Little darlings.
The next day we went to Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope which is in a nature reserve and is extremely pretty. There we saw Baboons and Ostriches.
We later headed to Nordhoek and sat on the beach then to Haut's Bay to buy some fish.
On Monday I went up Table Mountain in the cable car and it is just gorgeous up there. Then I thought I'd climb down which took about three times as long as I expected and now I have sore legs but it was worth every step for the beautiful views and the peace and quiet.
Today I am going to the travel agents to look into the possibility of flying to Kruger and spending a few days looking at animals before heading back South on the Baz Bus.
Jolly good, that's all for the time being.
