Dottie's bold South African adventure continues. This time at the Cape of Good Hope.
I like this name. Though I suppose for the passengers and crew of The Flying Dutchman it may cause the hackles to rise slightly. Doomed as they are to make attempt after failed attempt to round the cape. For all eternity. Dang!
Dottie wasn't watching out for any drunken pirates or ghost ships though. She set her sights on...PENGUINS!
She caught this group right in the middle of an important meeting.
She shared a contemplative moment with this fellow. Penguins are deep thinkers.
Jagged thoughts become smooth again after going for a swim with friends.
Plenty of walking keeps the thigh and ankle muscles robust.
Dottie sent this note along with the photos. There was no p.s. attached that said, 'please don't turn this into a blog post.' Someone like me with no moral compass really needs a p.s. if I'm not supposed to do something.
from the beginning, 3 of the things i was most looking forward to laying my eyes on in south africa were:
-- robben island where Nelson Mandela was in prison for years
-- the cape of good hope which i remember being captivated by in 5th grade social studies-- i remember imagining those big ol' sailing ships getting here
today i got to see # 2 & 3. wow! Wow! WOW!! is all i can say. wonders to behold.
with love from the adventure in south africa,
