November 23.11.06 Trip to Cape Point and Boulders Beach / Part 4
As we are coming closer to the Cape of Good Hope the roads even got busier.
There we saw our first mammals, Bonteboks.
We stopped on the side of the road , had a closer look with the binoculars and all the others just rushed by. Not even wondering what we were looking at.
It was hard to find a parking space at the Cape of Good Hope. But finally I managed to find a quite place to have a look at the birds and the sea.
And of course this is the pic they all come for ,and of course although I already took a photo a few years ago, I could not resist.
On the way back we met this Ostrich couple.
A kind of strange sight seeing them with the ocean in the background.
We are used to observe them in Kruger, Kgalagadi or the Karoo and not here.
It was so lovely to see all the hills covered in flowers .
There were hundreds or even thousands of them.
And with this great view and the visit of a little Lizard we left the Park.
We had a great day, the landscape is stunning, the flowers gorgeous. We even saw Ostriches, Bonteboks, all kind of birds and Lizards. Unfortunately we have not been lucky with Whale sightings. But we enjoyed it nevertheless.
Our next stop on the way back to Cape Town will be Boulders Beach to visit our beloved Penguins.
